    This is the thread to talk about the latest installment in the Mario Kart series, Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS.

    Confirmed characters:
    Donkey kong
    Koopa troopa
    Shy Guy
    Metal Mario
    Lakitu (red shell)
    Honey Queen

    Fire flower (fireballs)(Limited time and number)
    Super leaf (tanooki tail)(Limited time)
    Number 7 (gives the driver 7 items around them to be used once)
    Banana Peel
    Triple Bananas
    Green Shell
    Triple Green Shells
    Red Shell
    Triple Red Shells
    Spiny blue shell (no wings)
    Triple Mushrooms
    Golden Mushroom
    Bullet Bill

    Also coins are returning and operate by once 50, 100 or 500 are collected a new kart part is unlocked and the driver loses coins if they are hit by an item also collecting 10 coins in one race allows the kart to reach top speed. Karts are customisable with different frames and wheels. There are gliding sections and underwater sections for use with the glider and propeller respectively. Drift is the same as in MKWii (So NO SNAKING).And tricks are returning and are activated by using the drift button on the ramp. Gyro controls are being included and the player can see in 1st person view i.e in the kart.

    Keep things nice and discuss. :)

    Release dates:
    JP: Dec 1
    US: Dec 4
    EU: Dec 2
    AU: Dec 3

    What's your point?

    Electivirus Not really, no.

    Mario Kart with console-level visuals on a handheld + stereoscopic 3D + silky smooth 60 FPS in both 2D and 3D + online = WHY DOES DECEMBER HAVE TO BE SO FAR AWAY.
  6. Eternal Darkness

    Eternal Darkness Eternal Evil

    I thought about preoordering it, decided that beating Bowser with a Tanooki Tail was more tempting, and thus, am going to try and get 7 for Christmas.

    I just hope the online will be good.
  7. Shneak

    Shneak totem lurantis is the hardest boss

    It's looking really good, and I'm not a fan of the portable Mario Karts. I like that they kept the same online system as MKWii and the drifting. The character list is already pretty good (maining Rosalina and Mii again, Metal Mario and Lakitu are nice additions.), and the courses look good (Maple Treeway and Kalimari Desert are returning!)

    Nope its a false Bowser, its actually a Goomba with a tanooki tail

    AuraChannelerChris What a pain to relax...

    I won't vote until I have the game in my hands.

    Either way, I'm getting it. I need some good online multiplayer for my 3DS.

    Metal Mario should've been a power-up, not a character. :/

    If this game doesn't havw Birdo then it's not worth getting.

    Has anyone seen the 3d trailer on the 3ds eshop yet, it relly does look brilliant in actual 3d not 2d trailers plus the graphics and FR are really good

    Birdo? Really?
    I just hope they bring back R.O.B

    So long as they bring back Funky Kong I'm set. Rosalina & Funky were me go-to karters in Wii (and Dry Bones). Ideally I'd like to see everyone from Wii return.

    Metal Mario, at least ,does have experience as a separate character. "Boss" in SSB, SSBM, a playable character in Golf and I think a few other sports games, etc. I'm oddly excited to play as him for whatever reason.

    I hope they bring back the Boo item. Steal another person's item and have temporary invisibilty, and inexistence (you can pass through people and be passed through[was unsure how else to word it])? Why did they get rid of it?
  15. Looks cool, but I don't have a 3DS...... unless someone mails me one

    For some reason I really like the name 'Mario Kart 7.'

    I swear, if they bring back that dang thunder cloud I'm gonna be ticked.

    This game looks awesome though, I can't wait to get it, and retro studios is developing it which makes it even better.

    Oh yeah I forgot retro is helping design some of the tracks.
    I wonder if we'll get a tiki racer. Or maybe the checkpoint pig?
  19. Electivirus

    Electivirus Not really, no.

    Retro isn't developing the game, merely contributing assets. Most likely for the lone DKCR track.

    They're probably assisting in other tracks, but the one liveblog I found didn't detail specifics.
