Thank you for not calling them "Koopalings" like some sorta degenerate! I keep seeing this on twitter and I'm overreacting for no reason! I mean, they're the mother fucking KOOPA KIDS! What is wrong with these people?? And I ain't even about to have the conversation that they're not Bowser's spawn... Get the fuck outta here with that noize.

Anyway, excited for this one.

Not a big fan of the camera work in this trailer. But who am I kidding, I'm gonna buy this.

I still find it bizarre that they've started numbering these games.

Day one purchase for me. It looks awesome. And quite beautiful. Such a relief after the ugly monstrosity that was the Wii game.

Though to be fair, the 3DS game looks quite nice too.

It's been a long time since I've been this hyped for Mario Kart.

I think I'm gonna buy a Wii U. I'm kinda glad to feel good about saying that, finally.

Now the question is, do I get it or a PS4 first? Hm...

This game really looks pretty.

Wow this game looks beautiful!

Yeah, but can you race as a shy guy?

I'm curious how I'll react to a new Mario Kart after playing Sonic Racing Transformed. That game was so damn good, man.

This actually looks really cool. Like the trippy gravity defying track bits.

The last Mario Kart I really played was Double Dash so I think I'm about ready for a new one.

this looks really awesome

I'm no fan of the Wii U, but this looks really good. Nintendo needs some positivity, and this should get some.

This game needs to be about five times faster. Also it needs to be an F-Zero game. With Star Fox in it. And Metroid. And...-

This game is more visually pleasing than any PS4 or Xbox One game I can currently think of. Tempting to buy a Wii U...

Fucking nostalgia, why is it so effective?

Posted by IzunaDrop

Why couldn't they just add Nintendo characters ala Smash Brothers? I like Iggy and the KOOPA KIDS as much as the next man, but this is pretty lame.

@dank_: The motherfucking Koopa Kids, they've been in like half of the Mario Party games.

I can't believe that I'm actually genuinely excited for a new Mario Kart. Since the first trailer last year this has looked really promising. I usually buy those games anyway and play them for some amount of time, but 8 looks like something else. The crazier the tracks, the better. If you want a "serious" kart game you can go play that mode from Gran Turismo 5 or something.

As for the character roster. After this addition, they're kind of starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel when it comes to new characters, but I don't think they should turn this into Super Kart Bros. Mario Kart was always a "E" rated game and I don't feel like Zelda, Link, Samus and company would fit into the presentation style. Looking at actual Smash Bros., that game looks a bit more "mature" and violent than your regular Mario Kart, which is also reflected by the "T" rating. I don't know. It would be pretty weird to see the 7 foot tall Samus sit in a tiny version of her spaceship with wheels attached to it.

Wow, kind of shocked at all the positive comments here

But seriously this game looks good and the track design looks fantastic. Wasn't the biggest fan of Mario Kart Wii, but I'm picking 8 up for sure

The Wii U may not be as powerful as PS4 and XBONE, but I think just being in HD is good enough, because this is fucking gorgeous. Nintendo and their art styles always go the extra mile and look great for years

Posted by Peacemaker

This looks really awesome. The tracks look amazing. I haven't really paid much attention to Mario Kart in recent years but it looks like they added a whole bunch of new mechanics too.

I dont have a WiiU... but this trailer still made be very happy.

Nintendo's actually a very progressive organization which supports single fathers. Also, Bowser is a horndog.

Looks more like Mario Bikes.

Let's just go and spin donuts on these dirk bikes.

So what you're saying is they should make Super Smash Kart.

Once upon a time, I thought that was a good idea. But then... I feel it would kind of cheapen the gravitas of Smash Bros. Smash is a fucking event, but if you had every Nintendo property colliding every year/platform multiple times... it wouldn't feel as special.
