Changes to make:

Make character stats visible rather than having to look them up on a wiki. In fact just remove character stats completely so I can pick my character based on what character I like rather than how they play.

Reduce the coins needed to unlock the gold wheels or whatever it is to a reasonable amount that I'm likely to get while I'm still unlocking other things.

Stats are good. Whether you show them or not, people will find them. I just wish every character played differently. Deluxe made it better but 8 was pretty shocking for just giving characters the same stats.

The gold glider was also better to get in Deluxe at 5000 coins as opposed to 10000 in Vanilla.

I'm also hoping for a return to form for Mario Tennis, the N64 original is brilliant.
Off topic but this so much.

The Switch version does look more promising than the last few instalments but we'll see.

On topic: I don't mind character stats, but I agree that they should be visible to some extent. Even if it's hidden behind a menu or something to avoid clutter.

5000 still too much

And I want to play as my boy Lemmy without suffering from his lightness :(

We are now at the point where technically we have sixteen character weights in the game, and all I'm left thinking is why.
It was much simpler back in the 64/Double Dash days.

I think the next Mario Kart (if not MK8) could easily become more of a platform with new DLC in the form of characters/vehicles/tracks and modes replacing the need for subsequent follow-ups. Wouldn't want it shifting any further into Smash Bros territory though.

Maybe say "I'm not interested in this game/franchise" rather than implying no one is interested in it by suggesting it shouldn't even get made or released?

I asked if we really needed another one. I never said no one is interested. I'm aware that everyone except me loves Mario Kart, and I honestly can't fathom why.

I would love a new Mario Kart game on the Switch. I can't imagine that they wouldn't make a new Mario Kart because MK8 Deluxe is basically the same as the Wii U version.

I actually agree we don't need another one. 8DX is pretty damn good, I'd be satisfied if they just ported the rest of the tracks over.

If they said they were just going to release more content for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe then I'd buy it tomorrow, as it is I just don't know and I'd prefer to wait a bit longer for Mario Kart 9 (or whatever it ends up being called) rather than buy 8 again just to buy 9 down the line. Mario Kart 8 is the best they've made so far so I'd actually be perfectly happy if they just released more tracks for it, just need to know which option they're going to go for out of updating 8 or releasing 9.

Also how in depth are the character stats? This is news to me........ Obviously I get the 3 weight classes but I guess the actual stats go a lot deeper than just weight.

Iirc, there are 7 weight classes in vanilla, 9 with DLC and then I think 16 in DX? Other than character models, there is literally no difference between characterd in a weight class. It's not like Wii where every character had some hidden stat that made them unique.

But given that the cast in vanilla is like 30 something and there's essentially only 7 characters, it's pretty shocking. DX improved in a lot of ways then you might think.

Never thought it'd go that in depth really, will read up on it at some point, might be able to point some poor results on character choice that way then :lol:

Oh, that'll be just you convincing yourself that's where the blame lies. Toad in the standard kart set beats all in my hands [most of the time].

I did have most of my success with Toad, with the pipe kart, can't remember which wheels and a lighter glider. There was the odd time however that I could not win for anything though, quick hour away from it, change of character quickly sorted that.

Not looked into Mario Kart Tour yet, wonder if it'll be similar in set up to Super Mario Run, where you get a cup for free then have to buy the rest.

I want a Mario Kart All-Stars, with literally every track and character to date, plus some new characters, even if they are released in instalments.

Imagine the entirety of Mario Kart in your hands.

That would be simply amazing and something that will never ever be done.
With a hundred and something tracks in the history of Kart, though - so long as people were interested and willing to support Nintendo in doing it - releasing a pack of thirty or so tracks every two months within one paid package [so one payment would guarantee all tracks when released] that would certainly be something and is a sure-fire way to keep people playing throughout the year, and then an entire new roster of tracks gets released when everyone thinks the updates have stopped - that's still apart of that one price.

Why do I want to plan what this could look like right this minute?

Whilst we wait for MK9 on Switch, it seems we may be getting a new Sonic All Stars Racing game this year, which I'm really hoping is true as Transformed was arguably a much better game than MK8.
