On the Japanese website there are two character slots marked with a ?. So that means there will be 2 more new characters apart from the ones we've seen.

14 characters so far confirmed. I bet there will be more too. I really wish I could just freeze myself until December 4 because I cannot wait for this game. Everyday I get more hyped. I can't even sleep at night. Lol

Why did I check out the Japanese website for Mario Kart 7.
I'm afraid that I'm not going to sleep tonight as well. It looks all so good.
And koopa cape, my favourite wii stage is returning! YES!

I'm hyped about the return of Mushroom Gorge. That's my fave track from the Wii.

Indeed, that was a very cool track as well.

Added after 6 minutes:

I think there will only be 16 characters in the game: the confirmed ones and the ones and the not-confirmed ones on the Japenese website.
It doesn't look like there will be more...

Coconut Mall, Mushroom Gorge, Koopa Cape, Maple Treeway... it's like they chose the best MKWii tracks.

13 confirmed retro tracks, 3 unknown tracks left!

I'm cool with that 16 is just fine. I just wish they will put the babies in the game, but that's just an extra that's nice to have, but not necessary.

I like the babies and play as them often, but don't think they are necessary to the roster.
And yes from (insert western accent) what I see around these parts not too many people like them.

There is some kind of beehive track that I saw too, it looks good. (Can be seen here: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/3ds/amkj/play/index.html)


Also, the 7 item seems to give you lots of different items, 7 of them funnily enough:

ƒ}ƒŠƒIƒJ?[ƒg‚V : ƒAƒCƒeƒ€

I wonder if you pick one or if you can use all 7...


It also seems as if the fake item box has not been included along with the POW Block, King Mushroom or lightning cloud.

Mario Kart 7 Tracks, Karts, and Items Revealed - News - Nintendo World Report

New confirmed names!
And the 2 characters that have yet to be revealed are
standing under Metal Mario and Lakitu, which means
they must be completely new as well. Looking forward
to the rest of the characters and tracks.

Other than the crappy character roster, and the very crappy battle stages, I really can't wait now. The retro tracks chosen I really like.

The Beehive track is a battle stage.
And you can use all the different items at a time,
not just one of them in the lucky seven item.

This will be the best game ever ever. Koopa Cape and Koopa Troopa Beach! And Mushroom Gorge looks extra fun with the gliding capabilities.

The Gold Mushroom is included. I think they mean the Mega Mushroom which seem to be gone. Shame, I liked it.

Why does Mario trick and then glide? Is it mandatory to glide off high jumps?

maybe, but i think you just need to go off a blue ramp and if you do a trick, when you land you get a boost maybe? idk but either way doing tricks isnt hard at all (well for me it isnt) so if i need to do a trick to glide, fine with me.

Yay for optional motion control! I'm hoping for a useless wheel shaped piece of plastic to go with it.

I never had Mario Kart Wii so I missed out on that experience so... Yeha. I'm pretty serious. Normally, I'd be against it since it's, well, a useless piece of plastic, but I want to drive with a wheel.

Noticed that, maybe you can do tricks when you go on a boost platform? It was a pretty cool trick too.

Hopefully some time in the next few days. Having no release date yet is bothering me because it would be a real shame if we got it weeks after everyone else. I don't think that will be the case, but still... it bugs me.

Somebody should create a community in Mario Kart 7 for this forum, if it's out.

The sky changes?

And I'm not sure 100% that that course is Dino Jungle.

so only 1 track, and the sky isnt that big of a deal, it could be based on what time it is on your 3ds to determan what the color is.

Oh wait, I see 'em. Wuhu Island's sun is setting, and the ground on the other track looks like the ground from Dino Dino Jungle.

So now we know at least 1 returning Double Dash track.
Never played Double Dash, so I'm happy this track is returning
as I'm really curious about this course. Looking Forward to race on it.
ONLY 6 WEEKS!

I wouldn't mind GCN Daisy Cruiser returning, but I'm not sure it would work with any of the new features like gliding and underwater. Then again, I doubt if GBA Bowser's Castle 1 uses them, either.

It's as if Nintendo heard my prayers, most of the tracks I wished for has returned. Those include Airship Fortress, Maple Treeway, Mushroom Gorge, the Dino track from DD and Waluigi Pinball.
As for the remaining unknown, I'd really love to see Toads Turnpike.

It's nostalgic, cosy, and the music is awesome. That's my reason.

Hey doopz, you better get used to doing tricks via the D-pad, we'll probably have to do that in MK7.

What, why?

I liked it. It felt like a real life road track. I haven't played DS in several years but I remember liking that track.

I think me and Doopy had a conversation about it ages ago, and I think we both agreed that it was too easy to avoid the traffic on it or something? Me, I dislike that it's in daylight mostly. I love Turnpike and Moonview Highway 'cause they are dark <3

Yes, we had that convo months ago. Shroom Ridge is boring and too easy to avoid the traffic, plus, it's day time and traffic tracks suit a night time theme so much better. I just enjoy the night atmosphere of it.

Instead of shaking the controller to perform a trick in the air as in Mario Kart Wii, tapping a shoulder button also serves that purpose.
Also, it is said that up on the D-pad activates the first-person view/gyro controls.

Pretty sure its the jump button that does the tricks off the ramps. Why would you want it to be done on the d-pad? That would be kind of awkward no?

Really? Damn, how disappointing. I was hoping it would be like in MKWii, because...

...there you could choose between 3 different tricks. Now we won't have that choice with a single button.

I haven't really thought about it, but even so, we won't get to decide which trick they will do if it's a single button. If it's random, that's okay, but I'd prefer to choose.

You didn't get to choose what trick you did in Mario Kart Wii though so why would this be any different?

If you used a GCN controller, the trick your character did was dependent on whether you pressed the up, side, or down button's on the D-Pad.

Also, I liked Shroom Ridge. And the ease of avoiding the traffic on it applies to every other traffic course as well. In fact, the only traffic courses I'd place above Shroom Ridge are Mushroom Bridge and Moonview Highway. Toad's Turnpike was too simplistic, and Mushroom City just never did seem to click for some reason.

Get your facts right. Mario Kart Wii has several control methods and no matter which one you use, you can perform 3 different tricks depending on which direction you press/swing.

This, but in perhaps a slightly less outraged way.

To be fair though, if the number of different tricks has been reduced so each character has one, I don't think it's a particularly glaring omission, especially in comparison to all the added features Mario Kart 7 has in its gameplay and online components.

It's possible that the guy who wrote about the shoulder button just wasn't as curious about that feature like we are (it was on Nintendo World Report, by the way). I mean, if up on the D-pad takes you into first-person, maybe the other three directions do tricks? They've got to do something, right? Maybe? Since the left shoulder in DS picks and uses an item, I would assume Karty55 is right and it would be the same button that does hops/drifting, since you wouldn't need that off the ramp. It's not a deal breaker if we get random tricks off of one button, but it would have been cool.

I only ever used the wii remote and nunchuck combination so I only ever shook the thing to do tricks. I had no reason to use my standard gamecube controllers so my apologies if I was mistaken on that.

Yeah, sorry if that sounded rude. I was just in a piss mood, and people who claim stuff that ain't true tend to piss me off further then.

But yeah, with the nunchuk, you can choose what trick to do depending on what direction you swing the Wiimote. Up, down, left/right.

But yeah, with the nunchuk, you can choose what trick to do depending on what direction you swing the Wiimote. Up, down, left/right.
You learn something new every day I guess. In all the time I played MK Wii I just assumed it cycled through the tricks at random.

Wii was my favourite due to the courses. I really love the Wii tracks, I think the tracks get better every game.

Although I loved the double dash kart system.

Hoping MK7 will be my favourite. Thanks for posting all the details about it so far.

Gliding is so much fun, it's exhilarating staying in the air for as long as you can to land in front of your opponents, especially If you're flying with shrooms.

There's probably going to be some crazy shortcuts using the gilders. Can't wait to see this new element in action when I play. And the underwater driving too.

I wonder how both of these things will affect time trials though?

Glad to see they got rid of that stupid ass Thunder Cloud. That thing pissed me off so much. This is a racing game, not goddamn hot potato.

I really hated that cloud so much.
I have a feeling this game will be one of the most balanced MK games made.

Yeah, I think the controlled stats through Kart Customization and the need to master land, air and water could bring that.

There will still be a best-stat-combination that everyone will use online, sadly. I am so f*cking sick of seeing Funky and Daisy in MKWii that I could puke.

At least it's no longer a case of just looking at a Kart with good stats and using it, some thought needs to be put into it.

Us Americans will already have a tier list by the time it comes out, I'm guessing.

I don't care if people don't like it, but I'm going to use MK7's Funky/BB equivalent.

Who do you think that will be at this point? There are only two missing characters left and right now there really isn't one that stands out.

I'm guessing it'll be to character extremely special or something really small like another one of Bowser's minions that we will assume to be extremely special, but are eventually disappointed. I'm really hoping it's not another clone. Anyone want to make a wager?

It's not like there are a billion different combinations, the fastest one will stand out and that one will be overused by people. Tier lists will tell what is fastest and people will stick to that, no matter how minor it is. Prepare to get sick of whatever character/vehicle combo that will be.

How are we supposed to figure out who'll be given the best speed/miniturbo stat based on their looks? lol

The 7 places 7 items circulating around you, and it seems like the player will get to choose one of them.
The tail just seem to flip over anyone who's nearby.

No i think you get to use all of the 7 items. It's called "Lucky 7" btw.

I'd prefer if it was one, winning in MK is enough item-depending as it is.

And calling it "Lucky 7"? As if Mario Kart isn't almost all luck based anyway.

I don't think so. They always caught up to you because the computer would make them drive faster. They didn't even need to get items. But if you drove well then you could beat them.

In Mario Kart Wii they are just cheap. And will start getting items over and over and hit you with everything at one time. So I think Wii is more item based.

What?! MK 64 didn't have items that pretty much held your hand through the track. MK Wii is nothing but item based. You could pretty much suck at driving in MK Wii and still get around 5th/higher with little effort. I have been knocked back into 12th in MK Wii and have made it back to the front in 1 1/2 laps so many times it's ridiculous. It's common to get a Bullet Bill -> Starman -> Golden Mushroom Combo in MK Wii.

I think it's pretty much unanimous that Mario Kart Wii had the worst item balancing in the series. It wasn't commonplace to get multiple Blue Shells each lap, and Golden Mushrooms/Stars/Bullet Bills were a dime a dozen. In contrast, being attacked by a blue shell in Mario Kart 64 was actually somewhat exciting due to the rarity of them.

I have a mixed viewpoint on tier lists. As far as Time Trials and the like go, choosing a character is of tantamount importance, because the individual boosts of the character do have a significant effect on the end time of the race in question. However, I tend not to worry about tiers in races, largely because the sheer amount of luck based elements such as items renders the existence of tiers far less important than the likes of a fighting game. I personally race online with Dry Bones in the Bullet Bike for Mario Kart Wii, because that's the combination I prefer.

In essence, my belief is that tiers have a huge impact on Time Trials or races where the element of luck is removed, but that they have less of an impact when luck and items are factored in. Tiers are present in any game with multiple distinct playable options, but those tiers are of differing impact dependent on the game and situation. Also, unless said competitors are at the top level of play (Which I will openly admit I am not) then tiers tend to be of negligible importance.

EDIT:

Also, I was looking earlier at the confirmed courses for the game, and I'm reasonably sure that there are only liable to be 2 GCN courses - The two unannounced courses are liable to be a GCN course and either a SNES, GBA or (Hopefully) N64 course.
Here's my reasoning:

Shell Cup Courses: N64 Luigi Raceway, GBA Bowser Castle 1, Wii Mushroom Gorge, DS Luigi's Mansion

Flower Cup Courses: N64 Koopa Troopa Beach, SNES Mario Circuit 2, Wii Coconut Mall, DS Waluigi Pinball

Mario Kart has a pattern whereby they do not use multiple Retro courses from the same game in a cup - Because of this, as there are only 2 cups left with open spots, there are only liable to be 2 GCN courses. This would consist of GCN Dino Dino Jungle and one of the two unannounced courses. The other course would be 1 of either a SNES, GBA, or N64 course. If this is the case, then there's still the possibility of Royal Raceway (Which I'm quite shocked isn't in anyway given that it has the watery areas and the jump that would be perfect for this game) or another N64 course.

Sorry if this has been touched upon before. What do you guys think?

OMG, YES! If Royal Raceway doesn't make it's way into MK7 I'd be pretty annoyed because it really is perfect. It would probably be the best looking remake level if they really went all out and perfect for MK7 for the reasons you stated (water areas and huge jump). Royal Raceway was one of my favorite tracks and I really hope they bring it back.

Two new characters, Queen Bee and Wiggler announced.

MARIO KART 7 - 4 BRAND NEW CONFIRMED CHARACTERS! - YouTube

Wiggler should be fine. I wish Lubba, Toadsworth, Petey, King Boo, Dry Bones, etc, would be in the place of Queen Bee though.

blah blah blah more stuff for you

copypasted from GAF

Quote:
Some new info (other than two new characters) was released in the latest Nintendo Power.

Tracks:

Mushroom Cup:

Toad Circuit:

Generic starter track, first use of glider.

Daisy Hills:

The track with the hot air balloons. Features long gliding section and rams.

Cheep Cheep Lagoon: First water level, shown off at E3 and demoed multiple times.

Shy Guy Bazaar: Arabian themed with multiple routes.

Flower Cup:

Wuhu Loop:

The track that is one long lap. There are giant cars you need to dodge.

They really want to emphasize those cars.

Mario Circuit:

Contains a lot of coins for unlocking parts.

Music Park:

Music themed (obviously), features pirahna plants and music notes that shake the ground.

Rock Rock Mountain:

Another air themed track, has a lot of shortcuts to take.

Shell Cup:

Luigi Raceway (N64)
Bowser's Castle 1 (GBA)
Mushroom Gorge (Wii)
Luigi's Mansion (DS)

Banana Cup:

Koopa Beach (N64)
Mario Circuit 2 (SNES)
Coconut Mall (Wii)
Waluigi Pinball (DS)

Characters:

They confirm that there are more characters than the sixteen released. I'm personally hoping for Waluigi and Dry Bones to round out the roster.

Items:

Fire Flower is on a timer.
Last item in the lucky seven is a mushroom (as I predicted!)
Tanooki tail deflects shells back. Not sure if multi use.

Boo and Koopa Troopa would like to have a word with you. They may be more popular, but they're still minor enemies.

You have a point there...... Wait, Boo? The only Boo playable in any Mario Kart game (that I know of) was King Boo in MKDD He's not a minor enemy.

I'd pretty much guarantee that the last two characters will be waluigi and either boo or Dry bones, if there are two left.

I'd like to point out something most people seem to have missed - This isn't Wiggler's first playable appearance in a Mario sports spin-off. He's also playable in Mario Super Sluggers and Mario Power Tennis. There could have been far more random and obscure characters to add.

In the case of minor enemies, we've had Koopa Troopa, Paratroopa, Dry Bones, Shy Guy and Lakitu playable before. King Boo doesn't count as a minor enemy, it's really more of a boss, similar to Petey Piranha. Also, having a generic Boo as a character would be weird because there's a Boo item.

In the case of minor enemies, we've had Koopa Troopa, Paratroopa, Dry Bones, Shy Guy and Lakitu playable before. King Boo doesn't count as a minor enemy, it's really more of a boss, similar to Petey Piranha. Also, having a generic Boo as a character would be weird because there's a Boo item.
Well, there is a koopa shell item and he has been a character since DD.

That's a good point, although it is only the shell - the Boo item is an entire Boo, so having both that and a generic Boo as a playable character would be stranger.

Hmm. Why do I remember playing as a Boo? I don't even.

I agree with you there. I think it bothers me because they decided on the seventh game to number it and none before this; i wonder if they'll number future MK titles.

It's better than naming it Mario Kart 3DS.

>Mario Kart DS
>Mario Kart 3DS

'Well Mario Kart 3DS is prolly just Mario Kart DS in 3D, so I'll get the cheaper one for $30.' - Oblivious consumer

>Mario Kart DS
>Mario Kart 7

'Mario Kart 7 is newer. I guess I'll get that.' - Oblivious consumer

We got more footage! Particularly of the tracks that we haven't seen much of.

It still shocks me how much better this game is visually than the Wii version. Coconut Mall looks better here.

I love the music course, by the way. But I would. lol

Music Park looks like the best new track, & my new favorite.

I hope that the Star & Special Cup tracks are just as awesome.

Wow, they definitely really changed Koopa Troopa beach a lot, but I guess that's good if they were going to bring it back a retro track with water. Waluigi Pinball looks even better than before and will be amazing with gliding. And I'm sorry, but Wiggler just looks silly with the two top arms sticking out like that. And Wario's car in that one clip looks badass.

Awesome, I love Music Park. The sound of the Xylophones as you ride on them, the jammin' Piranha Plants, it's got character.

Yeah, I can tell already that Music Park will be one of those tracks people online will always pick. I hope people's obsession for it wont ruin it with that "over-done" feeling. I get that from tracks like Rainbow Road and DK Mountain on MKWii because people pick them too much.

It's a game made exclusively for the 3DS, a device that has Glasses free 3D as it's main selling point, why wouldn't it have 3D? Yes, it has 3D, and I've played the game so I know that it's pretty darn awesome.

hehe oke cool=) You never know, Was just curious =P And this is one more reason me for getting this game, Finally some games that are worth spending 50 euro ( In my opinion that is ) I think most games out now are just not worth it, And since EVERY 3ds game here is still 40-50 euro. Thats just not doing it for me.But MK7 is worth it

Music Park is going to be so popular, it's also possibly my favorite new track so far. Not too fond of the rest of the Flower cup, but still. (:

It looks like the SPAAAAAAAAAAAAACE theme in Rainbow Road is being taken to the next level. Though I would prefer it in Galaxy 2 style.

Some people are saying the player in front of the cloud kart is Waluigi. Others are saying it's just Metal Mario.

Mario Kart 7 - New Features Trailer - YouTube

Btw, you can use YouTube Enhancer to see the video one frame at a time.

I have no idea what it looks like.

The flood of new information today has got me even more psyched about the game - We now only have one Retro Course left to be confirmed! (Let it be Royal Raceway)

Also, the videos of the new cups are awesome. Wuhu Loop is a very interesting tie in with the Wii series and a unique course to boot, everything that needs to be said about Music Park has been said (Headbanging Piranha Plants for the win) and Mario Circuit also seemed quite interesting, especially with the pipe shooting out air near the end. As for the Retro Courses, Koopa Troopa Beach just fits with the new mechanics so well - It's probably the course I'm looking forward to playing most. Also, is it just me, or does Coconut Mall seem darker and more atmospheric this time around?

Hopefully either Royal Raceway or Yoshi Valley. And I hope the Rainbow road music is actually good this time, wii's is just terrible.

I liked the Wii Rainbow Road music - Granted, it's not a patch on the GCN Rainbow Road, but it was still pretty darn good.

I'm pretty sure the last course to be announced will be N64 - It can't be Wii, DS or GCN, and it just seems unlikely to me that there would be 2 of either SNES or GBA and one of the other. So, if we go by the assumption of it being an N64 course, it can be one of these:

- Toad's Turnpike
- Wario Stadium
- Royal Raceway
- Yoshi Valley

Out of those 4, Toad's Turnpike would be the one I'd like the least, because it just wouldn't have anything to use the new mechanics with, as it's flat and thematically impossible. Wario Stadium could have a few jumps, but I'm not particularly rooting for it. Yoshi Valley would be amazing, and could have some bits added for the glider/underwater sections, but in all honesty Royal Raceway would work the best - The jump is just perfect for the game, and there's the river and the lake which would also work really nicely in Mario Kart 7.

The only thing with the water in RR is that it takes up so much of the track that wouldn't you technically be able to skip like half of the level by going in the water? It could still work though, but I'd just personally prefer Yoshi valley, but maybe that's because that's probably my best track in any MK game.

I don't like how they remade the Koopa Beach from the N64. They seriously cut down the track : less jumps, less distance to race, no shortcut... I mean, come on, if you remke a track, remake it so it's faithful to the original. Same with Mushroom Gorge.

There are plenty of jumps, I always thought there were far too many in the N64 version...
It seems long enough...
There is a shortcut, I am pretty sure. It uses one of your beloved jumps...


Mushroom Gorge is fine apart from the styling of the mushrooms.

It's kinda funny... when I 1st heard that they was adding gliding sections to stages, the very 1st track that came to mind was Royal Raceway. And now it may be the final retro track that they show..

I kinda hope I'm wrong.. I'd rather see a Toad's Turnpike, Mushroom City, or Yoshi Valley (eventhough I know they won't get in).

Mushroom City isn't going to be in. 2 GCN courses have already been confirmed, and there's only two courses for them to be slotted into. There won't be multiple Retro GCN courses in one cup, hence there won't be another GCN course announced.

As for Royal Raceway, you could just add rocks or something underwater to limit underwater movement. They'll have done something like that to add bounds to Koopa Troopa Beach as well. Speaking of which, I thought the incarnation was pretty faithful. Having it 100% spot on the N64 version would be a waste of the fun you could have with the new game mechanics.

All of those were from different games and in different cups. Unless the current cup listings are not final, then there's not going to be another GCN track.

Two gamecube tracks in the same cup is not likely, but so was Luigi having two tracks in MK7's Shell Cup.

Don't you get it? It's not about the name of the track or what character it belongs to, it's form what console the track's from. A cup never contains two tracks from the same game.

Yep.

And besides, N64 Luigi Raceway and DS Luigi's Mansion are two completely different tracks. It's not like they're extremely similar, so it doesn't matter.

Screenshotz!


Also, you don't even need to see screenshots or videos to know Rainbow Road will be in MK7. It's only ever been in every single Mario Kart Game, derp.

You seem to have misspelled "love" as "hate". It's a fairly common mistake. Not serious at all.

I bet you would rather draw Honey Queen's butt now than pictures of Richard Nixon.

In times like these we must ask ourselves...

Why not both?

Wow, very professional. If I didn't know it was a joke, I would have believed the all mighty Queen Nixon was an actual confirmed character.

I find it strange and disappointing that there is no Boo (in any form) announced for this game. It really does seem weird that there's Wiggler and Honey Queen yet no Boo. I suppose they may have used statistics of the most played characters in MKW to help them decide which characters to keep and which to discard.

According to Nintendo power, there still likely are at least a few more characters not known yet.

This. You can most likely expect Waluigi, as well as some other fan favourites such as Dry Bones or Diddy Kong.

Waluigi is a lock, and I think either Dry bones or Boo would be next if there are two left.

Do you really think Dry Bones or Boo would be in before someone like Diddy Kong or Toadette? Just wondering.

First person mode looks pretty cool. Do you have to always use motion controls when using it?

First person mode is always motion controls, if that's what you're asking. Nothing has been said about being able to play first person but using the normal button controls. Motion controls and the first person mode are completely optional though.

Also, Dry Bones has a very good chance of getting in over Diddy Kong and Toadette. He was the most played by a large margin in Mario Kart DS and he was very popular in Mario Kart Wii as well. King Boo is not as likely, but still possible.

That's because he had the lowest weight in MKDS which made him the best character, and he has pretty good stats in MKWii as well. If we see him instead of Diddy due to people being tier addicts, I will be truly sad.

There's no doubt that more people like Diddy than Dry Bones, it's just that people are too addicted to good stats. -_-

People using Dry Bones in Mario Kart DS due solely to tiers is a legitimate argument, but he's only about mid-tier in Mario Kart Wii but is still relatively popular. In addition, Dry Bones does have a different aesthetic to the rest of the characters. Keeping Dry Bowser out is fair enough, but I think Dry Bones at least deserves a place. He's my favourite character in both of the previous games, regardless of tiers.

I've got a better idea though - We only have 16 characters so far (Excluding Mii), so why not just bump it up to 20 in a 4 x 5 layout? Then we could have Waluigi, Dry Bones, Diddy Kong, and Toadette. As we have 16 excluding Mii, we'd have to lay it out in a 4x4 format, so a bare minimum of 4 will fit down, and if we only presumed adding 2 characters and going with 18 then the layout would be 3x6, which would actually work worse than 4x5. I'm personally thinking we'll end up having 20 characters excluding the Mii.

EDIT: Also, an informal poll, so it's not the be all and end all, but here it is:

Most Popular character revote - Mario Kart Wii - The Biggest Mario Kart Wii & Mario Kart 7 Forum

Dry Bones was voted 5th most popular character in MKWii with 5 of the 86 votes. Diddy Kong got none. This wasn't a clear case of tier bias either, because Bowser Jr. got 4.

The point is, Dry Bones IS popular. There are people who will curse if he doesn't get in, and there are people who will if he does. Personally, I hope neither has to, and both Dry Bones and Diddy Kong get in. I see no reason why they shouldn't.

Sounds okay to me. I personally despise Waluigi, I just want Diddy to come back, lol. The others are okay.

Waluigi is pretty much guaranteed if there are additional characters to be announced though. The others with a good chance of coming back are Dry Bones, Toadette, Diddy Kong, Bowser Jr, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, and King Boo - The characters who aren't yet announced but have been in multiple Mario Kart games before.

I'm sure that all the characters we have seen are just the starting racers.

If we exclude the 4 new characters then I'd go with that, as 12 starting racers with 8 or more unlockable seems reasonable. I don't foresee Wiggler being initially unlocked though. Rosalina also seems iffy, but we'll see.

I highly doubt Metal Mario won't be unlocked.

It just shows the characters we know, but they have shown unlockable characters for other games before, without showing all of them.

That's reassuring, so some characters are likely only to be revealed after the game comes out?

I still think so for sure because I can't see them just randomly taking out Waluigi now. If he was already known then I would say that might be it, but with him not there i think we are safe for at least 2 more, possibly 4.

Have any possibilities of DLC's been discussed with Nintendo in the future with this?

Yea, look at this. These were all in characters: Waluigi, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Diddy Kong, baby Peach, and Baby Daisy. I don't know if they were put in just as assuming it would be the same characters as MKWii, but I didn't see a few characters from that like Funky, boo, etc. Although if that's true, it sucks that we have all four baby characters back again, and not boo or dry bones instead.

Yeah I know but at least we get some old characters back, but dry bones and boo would've been really awesome in this game. I still hope there are some secret characters that have not been uncovered yet so I can still hope for Kamek or Hammer Bro.
