Interesting that they're using the kart's PAL name in North America.

Well, in this case the PAL name was a direct translation of the Japanese name, so they likely thought that it would have said more about the kart - it’s intended to be the successor of the B Dasher after all.

i luv my butiful space pricness


it's weird how this game consistently places Kongs among the bad guys.

For one, there's the in-game driver selection (pictured above) where, for each of the silver, gold and amethyst classes, the "good guys" are listed first followed by the "bad guys". If this is not just a mere coincidence, why would Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong warrant being placed after Bowser, while Funky and Dixie wind up with the likes of Gold Dry Bones, Gold Dry Bowser and Sheriff Wario?

For two, Donkey and Funky Kong are featured as opponents in Vs. Mega challenges, as are characters such as Bowser, Koopalings, and Wario. As of this moment I can't name a Vs. challenge where you race against Yoshi, Rosalina, babies, or some other innocent face in the series.

I could see an argument being made that DK was, IP-wise, Mario's first nemesis, but why drag every other Kong with him? If K. Rool is ever added to the game, will he be placed next to Baby Rosalina?

Hi, I'm dazey!
I guess although he's not Cranky, they decided he's still one of Mario's rivals.
Take Mario VS Donkey Kong series for instance. That's not young Cranky in that series, no no, young Cranky didn't wear a neck tie.
The other kongs.. well we've never seen them oppose Donkey Kong when he's being a jerk.. so that's probably as far as that goes..
Though, I agree with you on the sentiment. Idk about Funky, however I know Diddy well enough to know Diddy would knock some sense in Donkey.

I have no objections with DK being a bad guy.

Actually, according to this official character book, the Donkey Kong we saw in Super Mario Odyssey is the current Donkey Kong. Nintendo retcon #5863378? And what about Cranky? Was another character Koopaling’d?

EDIT: here is the scan in case you want to scratch your head at this possible nonsense:

Didn’t expect them to add two Yoshis like in the last Yoshi Tour and a new Super one at that - months had passed since the addition of the last Super driver. Thankfully, in my ranked cup I can actually get him in 6th place, so I don’t need to sell a kidney to add him to my roster - odd for Mario Kart Tour. Also, about time we got another Turbo Yoshi, now we’d need the blue and black one...

Plus we also got the unexpected...

(oh yeah, don’t read too much in that male adjective, like in Pokémon male is used as genderless, even for species in which all the specimens are female)

Nintendo has been inconsistent about that for years, this is nothing new.
