    Peach
    Daisy
    Wario
    Waluigi
    Yoshi
    Birdo
    Toad
    Koopa

    Plus 2 unlockables

    Boards
    Toad Road
    Boo's Horror Castle
    Bob-Omb Factory
    Blooper Beach
    Magma Mine

    Plus 2 unlockables
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    And over 80 minigames.

    Here's the latest trailer...

    I'm probably more hyped for this game than I should be. I blame the inevitably weak 2012 line-up for Wii. The WiiU can't come soon enough.

    I hope it doesnt require motion+. I only got one motion+ controller and I have no intentions of buying another just for 1 game :/

    He's a boss instead.
    Kamek's taken his place as a playable character.

    It's mandatory.
    It works pretty well in my opinion.
