Mario Kart Tour

After hours upon hours of earning Grand Stars and beating each of the 12 cups in the New York Tour...I finally got Yoshi. It feels great having him now and being able to put that behind me.

Oh, and I didn't get him randomly, I got him from that gift box directly after the Metal Mario Cup.

Sorry to double-post, but the Tokyo Tour is a thing now!

New characters have come, too! Makana Mario, Kimono Peach, Baby Rosalina, Wario, Bowser Jr., and the Koopalings! (No Luigi, though...)

When they decide to add characters and they STILL can't be bothered to add Luigi. This is inexcusable.

The only way I can accept this is if they decide to cross-promote this with Luigi's Mansion 3 for Halloween, and they better go WHOLE HOG with it too. Add Luigi, Baby Luigi, King Boo, E. Gadd, a ghost from Luigi's Mansion 3, AND Zombie Mario plus whatever Halloween costumes they wanna add.
 
It is odd that GCN Yoshi Circuit uses the MK8 design, while 3DS Neo Bowser City and SNES Rainbow Road are based on their MK7 designs. Of course, they can't use MK8's Neo Bowser City because the track had an anti-gravity portion.

HEY LUIGI, WHAT'S DA HOLDAAAAAAP!!!?
Tracks take time to develop. Even for a mobile game, you probably shouldn't be expecting expansive tracks yet.
 
What do you guys think of the new items they've introduced so far, and do you think they have a place in future console Mario Kart titles? Coin Box, Dash Ring, Bubble, Banana Barrel and Mushroom Cannon would be interesting to see in Mario Kart 9.

One of the few interesting concepts in this game is the Special Items, including new ones and returning ones that haven't been seen since Mario Kart: Double Dash!!.

Which makes this whole thing even more disappointing because there are some genuinely good things about this game but it keeps fighting me back from enjoying the game.

But to answer your question, I'd like to see the Banana Barrels. The rest look kinda useless, especially the Mushroom Cannon and Dash Ring that can easily backfire on you if you have opponents around.

I would like to see all new items except for the Coin Box and Bubble to return. The Coin Box from what I can tell is only useful in the context of Mario Kart Tour where coins are useful for your score and combo and where you can collect more than 10 coins per race, but in a normal Mario Kart games it would be pretty useless. The Bubble is just boring, as it takes the auto-drive from the Chain Chomp and Bullet Bill but removes the speed and knocking other racers. I do like how the other items can help or hurt you, as it makes you more careful with how you use them. Even the Banana Barrels have this, as the Bananas in front of your are obstacles too.

The Bubble sucks.

Also, why are Thwomps bouncy?

Kimono Peach looks lovely. I like her bun style.





Still the only problem, I just wish it was an option when selecting Peach just like with Roll in Mega Man Powered Up and Mario in Super Mario Odyssey.

If Mario Kart 9 has customizable outfits, it better be done in the same way with Roll in Mega Man Powered Up or Mario in Super Mario Odyssey. I'd also like the addition of customizing Peach's hairstyle too. That would be great too.

I'd say this is pretty likely for the next tour, as Luigi, Baby Luigi, and King Boo were all playable during the beta test, alongside the Luigi's Mansion track from MKDS.

If we get Mario turning into a ghost because Luigi didn't rescue him in time (thanks to RNG), that would be hilarious, on the nose of the rumor pasta surrounding pre release Luigi's Mansion.
 
The reason I posted that picture of Rosalina at Rainbow Road earlier is because there is no section of that track that looks like that in SNES Rainbow, which leads me to believe that it’s actually GBA Rainbow Road.

There's alternate versions that add extra ramps and shit in this game, that's what that was. I already played that course.

Diddy Kong became my Mario Kart nemesis two years ago for excessive, subversive behavior.

He is not helping his case in Mario Kart Tour. And Baby Mario is looking into a slot on the roster.

There's not supposed to be a roster for this!
