That title is a bit of a mouthful but I need a place to talk about this thing because I'm so excited for it!!!!!

What tracks are you expecting? Do you think they'll add any characters? How do you feel about the reused assets from Tour? What do you think about getting this instead of a brand new Mario Kart?

If Wario Colosseum and Mushroom City from Double Dash don't get in otherwise I'm gonna riot.

I've said this way too many times already but it bears repeating: I like the Tour asset reuse, the less realistic/detailed models look more in line with the Mario aesthetic.

I do, however, dislike the removal of certain things like Miis; Piantas; and escalators on Coconut Mall for example.

I'd think the more detailed graphics would be "more in line with the aesthetic" considering what Mario's got on the Switch. Even Paper Mario's trying to be photorealistic in terms of a paper/cardboard world.

I think the Dlc is completly Backwards MK8 doesnt really need 48 worse Courses Instead i wouldve prefered 8 New/Retro Courses on the same level of Quality
+ Some new Drivers in my Case i want a Link that actually fits into Mariokart not mister im a slim 17 year old but im almost as heavy as bowser
AKA Give me toon Link you Cowards!

I guess it's appropriate to bump this thread now that Wave 2 just came out, I think it was cool to have an essentially original track release in 8 with the Ice Cream track (I know it's coming to Tour later, but it came out in 8 first).

Im still miffed that we dont get new Characters and Karts after all the original Mariokart 8 Dlc is so much Higher Quality than the "new" Tracks!

  2. Pauline
  3. E. Gadd
  4. Kirby
  5. PAC-MAN
  6. Sonic
1. Diddy Kong
2. Dixie Kong
3. Funky Kong
4. Pikachu riding those new Legendary Pokemon in bike form
5. Captain Falcon
6. Kirby

1. Diddy Kong
2. E. Gadd
3. Captain Toad
4. King K. Rool
5. Pac-Man
6. Cranky Kong

The top three is by far the most important for me. I tried not to put too many DK characters, and I included Pac-Man because he was playable in the arcade. I would also like to have R.O.B. back, but he is less important.

3. Tilt a Kart
4. Twilight House
5. Honey Bee Hive
6. Rainbow Rink (an original Rainbow Road themed battle map)
