I'm totally agreeing here! Toad's Turnpike should have been a Retro Course on MKWeehee!

Yup, it's called Choco Mountain. That was an epic raceway! I'd love to see how Nintendo can modernize it.

Mario Kart will be awesome in 3D, ink in 3D will be very cool, and I look forward to see how the stages will be in 3D aswell

How about no retro courses at all this time? Now that would be sweet!

...isn't anyone else getting a little sick of Nintendo's constant recycling of content?

No, couldn't disagree with you more here.

Retro courses are extras on top of the four usual cups. SNES and N64 (and Gamecube if I remember correctly?) ones only had the four or so cups, whereas the MK games that included a selection of retro courses basically add 100% of extra content to the game.

Constant recycling of content bothers me more on stuff like Animal Crossing, but on Mario Kart the retro courses are nearly always my favourites anyway - very few of the newer courses on MKWii live up to the standards of most of the retro courses imo.

i have to disagree. the reason i love rainbow roads is because they seperate the boys from the men (or girls from the women) . The course isn't always easily navigatable for a lot of players. It's something you have to practice on and really know how to control your kart, ya know? So i love all the rainbow roads, even the n64 one... Its so colorful!!!

this.

Rainbow Road is always my favorite track on all the Mario Kart games, because of the quirky track design and the races are always hectic. Favorite out of all of them has to be the N64 one, then the Wii one. Practicing and not falling off the tracks (or falling anyway...) is half the fun! XD

I find Toad's Factory and Shy Guy Beach more difficult than Rainbow Road.

I do have to agree on MKWii's Rainbow Road being the best, though.

I stated that those tracks were more difficult than Rainbow Road, not that the tracks themselves are difficult.

Try anything but Toadette @ Magikruser on Shy Guy Beach, and there's a high chance of losing.

I'm not suggesting reducing the number of available tracks, I just wish all the courses were fresh. I loved all the old ones but sometimes a series needs to flex it's muscles a little and show us all something new and a Mario Kart game with 100% original tracks would go some way towards doing that, if for no other reason than letting some of that stale air out.... Seriously, I'm choking on all of these recycled tracks!

I know it's Mario KART, but I love the bikes. I mostly use the combination of Diddy Kong + the Mach Bike.

The Rainbow Road isn't that hard. I find staying on it pretty easy. The only things that make me fall off are the damn POW Blocks and sometimes I might get confused and drive off the edge if the track is Mirrored. xD

The only Retro tracks I cannot stand on Mario Kart Wii are Shy Guy Beach, (especially) SNES Ghost Valley 2 and SNES Mario Circuit 3. I get annoyed when people online pick these tracks over and over. x_x

I wanna see Wario Colloseum. XD

I also hope they don't bring back the bikes (let the trololololing begin). They were being used way more than the karts, and the game is called Mario Kart, not Mario Bike. Come on, you know they were broken. Free boosts and beast-mode drifts? If you're using a kart against those (Unless it's Honeycoupe ) and they're good, the race is practically over before it begins. No bikes pl0x. XD

Karts do get the double boost though, which is really useful on constantly curvy tracks, but yeah, the vehicles are imbalanced.

If there are no bikes in MK3DS, hopefully, at least, there will be a couple karts with in-style drifting.

I hope many of the classic comes to MK3D, but like 3DyeS said, I want something fresh too. Think we will have to wait for E3 before we get answers.

For me Double Dash was the best up to 4 power ups at once.You could switch power ups to.N hit people from the side when ur right next to them hands down best Mario Kart.To bad it was overlooked.

Hm, for me I think 20 brand new tracks per game is a reasonable amount of new content in general, but I have to admit that I'm biased towards retro tracks, especially because I really dislike a lot of the tracks on the Gamecube and Wii games (that autumn/fall based one being the worst). I prefer the visual design of Nintendo stuff from the SNES/N64 era to the GC (which I hate) and the Wii (which is ok). There are a few decent original tracks in MK Wii and a few really good ones as well, but the ones I always find myself voting for are generally the retro ones, so I'd lose out big time if they stopped including those.

Honestly, if they remade MK64 with a graphical update and online play I think I'd probably never need another MK game again.

So do you guys think the control scheme will be the same as MKWii's GameCube controller setup, or are there better alternatives?

I never did like using X much for looking backwards, so I guess I have to get used to it, if, in fact, the controls emulate the GC controller.

I love the Gamecube controller for MKWeehee, I'm playing it right now with Doopy. I always use Z to look backwards, so I guess we'll have to settle with X on the 3DS.

For MKWeehee, I find the Wiimote + Nunchuck is the easiest and most comfortable way to play it. Others will probably disagree. xD

I hope the controlling for MK3DS is easy to get the hang of.

And why would that be weird? It would feel just like MKDS. Only better, since it's analog.

The Button lay-out is kinda close together. I also had a broken Hinge DS so I had to hold it weird so that's what probably giving me the feeling.

FUN FACT: It's really OBVIOUS that Princess Peach, Yoshi, Bowser and Donkey Kong will be in the game.

Interestingly, the first two of those appear in Nintendogs+cats as playable characters together with Mario... Via karts. The original Nintendogs also featured those characters, but it only had Mario, Peach and Bowser and the karts were in the same style as the MKDS karts.

The new karts have a MKWii style and come with one track of the same game's music for each character. There is a really big chance of the karts being the beta - or final - karts from Mario Kart 3DS.

ANOTHER FACT: Since the karts from the game are controlled by the Circle Pad, there is a huge possibility that the controls for driving will be made via the analogic stick.

I don't believe in speculation. Link or it didn't happen.

Really? I wouldn't've thought karts shown in a pre-release video would be beta.

ANOTHER FACT: Since the karts from the game are controlled by the Circle Pad, there is a huge possibility that the controls for driving will be made via the analogic stick.
They will. What else, motion control?

Some of the DLC contest things for MKWii are backwards, but jumps and stuff have to be added.

Like Dan said, they did some of that on MKW, but not enough. If they made all the tracks like that it'd increase the replay value a crap load.

It'd be pretty interesting if they added a reverse mode, where you drive backword and they reverse all the sounds and tracks.

But It'd be a lot of word on nintendo's part to make another mode besides mirror and mirror mode has worked so well for all the other games so I highly doubt another mode will be added. But there is always the possibility.

And I still hope they add some DLC, maybe new tracks or characters whenever possible.

I can't wait to see the Rainbow Road track! That's going to be epic in 3D!
And I really hope they have a galaxy track, where they use the whole gravity feature to make the track a little more interesting

Hopefully the controls are like this:



R can be used for looking back, since, I'm guessing, everyone uses B to drift anyway.

But you can't look back while drifting!

I just tried R and it's way harder than B. B is so close A.

OK, this is by far the best track that could possibly happen.

I do hope there will be way less hackers on MK3DS... on Wii there are billions, and it's SO easy to hack, I do it myself when there's a hacker in my group to protect myself from the mess.

Mario Kart DS was my favorite.

Mario Kart wii just lacked an ellement of fun that was in the other games. These are the reasons I don't like Mario Kart wii as much:
They ruined the battle, they added too many players (Keep with only 8 racing), they added too many new items (I n64 list of items the best), they need to get rid of the annoying panic thing after getting hit (Stop crying and drive ya coward, we're gonna lose this thing), and GET RID OF THE STUPID MII'S! Sheesh, do they have to be in everything?

I hope it does not get boring like the DS version did.

AFter a month, I am not able to play DS mario kart without boredom.

Mario Kart Wii is okay.

I want it to go back to the old style, OR do something completely new!

this. shells, bombs, banana peels flying everywhere... i find it rather entertaining actually, i mean how often do you get a chance to do this? I believe i discussed this in a different thread ( or in this one a long time ago ) that your score never goes down when you play with a hacker. I honestly don't understand why people complain. Most of them DON'T play to win anyways.

Hackers can be hilarious, I sometimes hack myself for teh lulz and place last. But I really really hate the undercover hackers, who race normally for the most part but activates stars and mega mushrooms now and then whenever they need it in order to win. Before I notice I always curse at their constant luck, then when I realize they hack, I get even more angry about my wasted energy trying to beat them!

I do hope the 3DS rumors about bricking 3DS' is true. This system I won't be bothered to run homebrew on, so I don't care, I hope this results in people being scared off from hacking online.

I caused a hacker to get butthurt in a race a few days ago. I tossed a bomb at them right before the finishline and won, it was quite satisfying. When the next race started, they started going nuts at me with bombs, but it only went on for about 20 seconds because they disappeared off the track. I guess they got disconnected.

The only thing they needed to add to Mario Kart DS were harder computers and an online battle. When I say harder computers I don't mean spamming computers like they do on Mario Kart Wii.

And I hate mii's in Mario Kart because they need to stay on their own games (Such as wii sports and Wii play). They don't need to add them to every game Nintendo makes. It would be like putting Link in a Mario Kart game or something!!!
Another thing is I really hate the sounds that they make!

I didn't like the idea of a track editor at first, but now I'm getting into it.

Like, you can choose the obstacles, maybe smear some Goombas on the road over here, place a Thwomp or two over there, and set of an attacking Chain Chomp near the finish line. Even have some Bullet Bills shooting down the race ray.

Of course, if they do decide to put a track editor in, lets home it isn't as bare bones as Brawl's stage editor was.

Also, I hope they make more missions for this game. i loved the missions in Mario Kart DS and they are a nice time killer.

The baby characters are totally dumb. The only one I can tolerate is Baby Mario, but then again, it's still dumb having him in the game. Toddlers driving motor bikes and go-karts? Yeah right. xD It also looks dumb as hell when you see the baby characters shooting down their future-selves. XD

I agree 100%. When they also took in Baby Peach and Baby Daisy, I just... *facepalm* whenever we want to use a small vehicle, we're forced to either use stupid babies, 2 lame enemies or 2 damn Toads. That's all. It puts me off from ever using small vehicles. I really hope we'll get cooler characters in the small category for the 3DS game.

Yeah, like, they made Bowser Jr. and Diddy Kong medium characters, even though they're smaller than all the characters in medium. I guess they did that for the sake of having lots of lame baby characters.

Wow, so this game might be pushed to 2012.....

It will be sad when the 3ds isn't a best seller because of lack of mario.(but that wont happen )

Mario should be a launch title, imo.

They could just make it motion control for tricks again like if you used the wii wheel.

I've seen a lot of 'shops in my day, and that kart is definitely 'shopped. I mean, look at the wheels! Rolling while in a stand-still position; come on.

Is the general public supposed to believe that kart is legitimate? Character's probably legit, but a fake kart. Unheard of.

I can't decide whether it'd be more fun with 16 racers or not. Maybe Nintendo will give us 12, like on MKW. I hated how MKDS only had 8 racers.

True more racers = more fun and challenge. I'm just excited to play without the hackers using cheats. Looking for some fun tracks and shortcuts.

It's too bad that won't last long. Hackers will come soon enough. This is why I hate online. Cheaters and spammers.

How could you say that? Wouldn't it be awesome to look behind you during a race and see Pedobear right behind you, getting close and closer?!?!

That's quite true. I was in an online race where someone using a Pedobear Mii was stalking me from behind for the whole race.

It was creepy in an exciting way.

I agree. The 3DS is certainly capable of performing this, but I think Nintendo still has a while to go before it can fully use its graphic power.

If there was a separate game named Nintendo Kart, Racing or something like that, it would be fine. I would seriously hate it, if Mario Kart was replaced by Nintendo Kart with so many non Mario related characters in it, taking over and ruining the cute, vibrant and cheerful Marioness of the game. It would probably seem like Smash Bros. on go-karts.

As long as they bring back most of the stuff from MKWii I'm kinda happy! But this time they should make the characters and their karts more individualised. They shouldn't be classified onl on their weight!! And better online mechanics for sure!

Customization is also pretty cool.

E3 Trailer: YouTube - &#x202a;Mario Kart 3DS Trailer E3 2011 [1080 HD]&#x202c;&rlm;

-Edit-

Ah yeah, ****ing knew it! At 0:20 (also when Yoshi drifts) in the above video, it pretty much confirms time-based drifting, which very well might mean no snaking.

-Edit2-

Retro tracks:
Maple Treeway
Luigi's Mansion

Also, Egg 1 from MKDS is back.

Because they were also in the original Mario kart and Mario kart Super Circuit. but this game looks great and I hope that the online is vastly better than MKWii's. Plus no karts? Seems like Nintendo outsourcing it's games to other developers is doing them well.

By the way, the other track that is returning is Airship Fortress.

I thought that was brought up enough already. Whatever, we'll say it again.

They're bringing coins back!

So, I saw the battle ship track, A Donkey Kong Country Returns track, Luigis Mansion (making it's THIRD appearance in a Mario Kart game) the tree top track from Wii. No N64, DD, GBA or SNES tracks here, but the game still looks awesome.

Third? No, the Luigi's Mansion track was introduced in Mario Kart DS and it wasn't included in Mario Kart Wii, so this is the 2nd appearance.

Oh, I would've sworn on my life Luigi's mansion was on Mario Kart Wii, guess not then. I'm relieved, I was afraid they would feature some tracks that were brought back already, leaving some golden tracks behind.

Also, bring back mission mode!

Diddy Kong needs to stick to Diddy Kong Racing. The series will die if Diddy moves onto Mario Kart.

Diddy Kong Racing are no series. It's a game and a remake (a horribly bad one). Diddy has been in Mario Kart since 2003, rofl.

LOL! Yeah, it's just one game that's been remade once for the DS. It ain't a series.

Maybe a choice between hang-gliding and tricks when going off a jump. Like pressing down-d-pad for tricks and up-d-pad for gliding.

It's business, live with it. It's not as if Rare's last games for Nintendo was their best work anyway the only problems that are raised is over ownership of characters such as Banjo and Kazooie which in my opinion would have been far more successful if Rare had sold the rights to Nintendo to make games with partial profits going to Rare when they moved to Microsoft.

For anyone who's interested in the powersliding mechanics of Mario Kart 3DS, it is apparently done manually as it is in Mario Kart DS and Double Dash! by moving the Circle Pad left and right whilst drifting, as opposed to automatically, as it's done in Mario Kart Wii.Source - http://uk.ds.ign.com/articles/117/1174809p1.htmlHow will this impact upon the other Mario Kart players? This has personally made the game for me, though I'm a self-professed snaker and realise some players dislike the powersliding mechanics for precisely that reason.

I never used automatic sliding in MKW anyways. Always did it manual since 64. So no, it won't effect me lol. But at least people will be able to learn how to power slide correctly because i always felt that automatic was cheating.

The graphics are beta? That's a bit weird to say after showing gameplay trailers, they will probably only do minor tweaks to visualisation, aa and stuff. Graphics will probably be as shown now. Maby a tad better lighting effects but I really doubt we will see any hardcore visual upgrades from what we have seen now.

My impressions:

Hell yeah, coins are back!

Hang gliding is... alright, I guess. I mean, if it gives you something to do when you would otherwise just be shot out of a cannon (as they showed in Airship Fortress,) I'm for it.

Honestly, underwater seems like a total gimmick. The tracks could've just as easily been on land, and there's no reason to screw up the handling on only certain parts of the course.

Customization looks nice. For the demos I've seen, each part seems to have more of a designated purpose (i.e. huge wheels help with offroading.)

The new tracks are... fine. They seem far too centered around their respective gimmick (gliding, underwater) that about a third of the course is designated to just that. Hopefully not all tracks will be like that.

Retro track choices are quite good. Airship Fortress is a no-brainer. It's a good course, and will look awesome in 3D. Luigi's Mansion... eeeehh... hopefully knowing exactly how far away you are with the 3D will make dodging the trees less of a pain in the ass. And Maple Treeway is fine, I guess.

Waluigi Pinball, I can live with, but not Wario Stadium tracks.

I seriously don't like them, especially the Waluigi Stadium retro track on Mario Kart Wii.

Share? Eh? All you seem to do is choose a chassi, wheels, and glider. There aren't really THAT much customization.

Anyone else disappointed with the varying quality of graphics in this version?
Look at this vid:
YouTube - &#x202a;Mario Kart 3DS Demo Track 1 with Audio (E3 2011)&#x202c;&rlm;
The beginning of the stage is really bland and boring, but when it gets to the forest it is beautiful and full of lighting effects. Same with the other stages. Some parts looks terrible while others look good. I wish it was more consistently beautiful.

I think the game looks really well made at the moment. All they need to make this an awesome game is to add Wario and add online multiplayer races and battles. The gliders look really cool in 3D. I'm just wondering one thing though: Are there going to be karts we unlock, or do we just unlock parts for a kart and build one ourselves? Personally, I'd rather be able to make my own kart.

Yes, it looks like he was TRYING to perform button-based mini turbo, but notice that the game only responds on time.

At 1:48 in this video, the person pulls of the boost much faster. Unless the carts have anything to do with the quickness of the boost.

Still looks to me like normal time-based MKWii style. People playing seem to try the button-based style but the game seems to respond to time-based. Also that other guy using luigi wasn't moving his thumb at all at one point, and the mini-turbo(s) still appeared. Looks all time based to me. I don't really know what I'd prefer... snaking was fun, but MKWii was enjoyable in a different way.

The timing just doesn't look consistent to me. I'm going to watch more carefully. Regardless, I'm sure things will be fun and balanced in the end (snaking or non-snaking).

Well, the timing would vary a bit depending on how hard you drift. It did in MKWii. But, yeah, it will be enjoyable nonetheless.

I voted for Mario Kart 64... With big tracks, Good songs, and easy to play. In other words, easy to control.

Eight player race is ok... Just needs some more like the wii. Besides, it'll be better instead of 4!

Also, a comment on the article (ctrl-f "bighouse") said that IGN was wrong on the type of drifting--DS-like. It is, supposedly, exactly like MKWii's: time-based.

8p sounds perfect. The 12p in MKWii is very exaggerated, there's a nonstop chaos of Stars, Mega Mushrooms, Bullet Bills and Lightning. No fair.

Yeah. I don't exactly like being in races where there's 12 people on the track. There's always two sections of the race; the lead and the chaos section. It's not always easy to break away from all the chaos of people with stars, bullet bills, 3 red shells and mega mushrooms around you. They often keep you from catching up to the lead, it's pretty frustrating when it happens.

I'm wondering what role those coins, that are laid out on the tracks, will play in the game. I speculate that they will be used to buy those tweaks and doodads for customization. I would also like to see a return of the "Emblem" feature where you can draw your own. Maybe they might even allow us to take a pic of ourselves and use it. (Most likely a friends exclusive feature) (Because of dicks)

Royal Raceway from MK64 for sure. Also, Yoshi's Valley from MK64. As for the character list, I'm fine with just the regular cast and just a few unlockable characters, hopefully won't go overboard like Mario Kart Wii. (Really? Four BABY characters?)

Um... have you never played the Mario Karts for SNES, GBA or Arcade?

As you pick up coins, your vehicle's speed increases. Also, the more you get, the higher your GP Ranking.

And it's probably a safe bet that they buy car parts, too.

I was shocked when I saw that they brung back my 2 favorite tracks from mkds and mkwii (airship fortress & maple treeway)

idk why, but im expecting royal raceway (mk64) to make an appearance, just because that track has that big jump. I can imagine gliding off that jump in 3D...

I hope they bring back yoshi valley, dry dry ruins (wii), moonview highway, toads turnpike, & koopa cape.

Where did i see the fortress and treeway? Or where did I see the big jump? lol

Judging from the e3 video and the gameplay videos on youtube, there's 7 tracks so far, with no sign of wuhu island from older screenshots.

- a track that resembles koopa cape (except with no water)
- a underwater stage
- a donkey kong stage
- a track that runs through peach's castle
- luigi's mansion (ds)
- airship fortress (ds)
- maple treeway (wii)

wait what

Where the hell is Wario?

I guess it's kinda a cool reference to SMK having Koopa instead of Wario, but DK's still there, so it's not the SMK cast.

For me, its a toss up between DS and the recent Wii version (mostly because of its awesome online experience). I do like the DS version though. I don't play it anymore, as I'm waiting for the next one, but it was quite good, and certainly raised the bar considerably for Mario Kart, imo.
