I had the chance to play this yesterday....

A cute Nintendo girl walked me through the demo. It felt like the Wii version. The track designs felt like the newer courses on Mario Kart Wii. I chose Yoshi. The egg cart is back, however snaking is definitely eliminated. The handle using the egg is nowhere near as good as it is on the older DS version. Hang gliding is a part of racing now, but I can't help but feel nostalgic for the older Mario Karts. The online better be outstanding for a game like this...I don't have high hopes for that aspect though.

@Hailinel: Yes..but I liked snaking personally. When all 4 racers online knew how to snake, the older DS version was fun!

@scarace360: I have a local radio show in my city. I mostly play video game music, but I do talk about stuff too.

So how was the feeling of vehicle speed in that game? On the trailer it seemed a little slow but I'm assuming it was 50cc.

I'll say it felt slow too. Well in the DS version, I was a snaker so I'm used to a faster feeling. And in the Wii version, I chose the Bit Bike and did wheelies on the straightaways. Choosing the egg cart and not being able to do either of those two things was different.

Was the 3DS strapped to the girl?
