Is it just me, or is this looking like an incredible entry into the series?

Loving the remodeled/remixed look of old tracks like Toad's Turnpike, Rainbow Road and Moo Moo Meadows.

The roster is looking awesome, now with added Lakitu, Metal Mario and Shy Guy!

And man, I'm loving the look of the game visually. I can't remember the last time I was this hyped for a new Mario Kart (maybe Mario Kart DS), here's hoping it's the shot in the arm the series could use. May 31 can't come soon enough.

gr8 b8 m8 I r8 it 8/8

I was gonna say that yeah it has looked pretty alright, but even if I was into the idea of playing another kart racer I'd have no one to play it with so I wouldn't get much out of it anyway.

But then I saw that zero fuck givin', ballerass Shy Guy and I got tempted..

I like how the moustaches actually move around as they drive, maybe they did that in previous games but I never noticed until now, I appreciate the upgrade in moustache tech. Nintendo have always been pretty great with getting the best out of things visually, you just have to look at the Mario Galaxy titles to see that.

I think incredible might be a bit much, but this looks like it could be a lot of fun. It makes me nostalgic for Mario Kart on the Gamecube.

It looks like another Mario Kart game.

I haven't played a Mario Kart game since Mario Kart 64.

I don't think that will change.

If Cat Suit Rosalina is in it I might reconsider.

Silly op making a Nintendo topic, you should know better I mean after all 90% of Giant Bomb users have no soul and therefore cant comprehend the beautiful vivid colors and child like whimsy of a Nintendo game.

Man this looks insane actually. All the recent screen shots are pretty mindblowing I think.

Eh, I've still got Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, so I'm good.

Yeah... Haven't bought a kart game since the DS version, but with the bundle, and the extra game promotion... I think they got me.

#23 Posted by Steadying (1617 posts) -

This game looks great and I'm definitely gonna buy it but I couldn't be less excited for it. Same with Smash Bros. And pretty much every other Nintendo game that isn't a main 3D Mario or Zelda. No idea why. :/

Also, this game's visuals look fucking great. Wow.
