It's actually 32 tracks, 16 old and 16 new. Only half were named though. Anyway, I want this game more than any other game, including Smash.

Oh yeah, first I get smash bros, when they come out, and then Mario Kart (but first I need to buy myself a Wii).

Diddy Kong Lover said:

Hah, I doubt that's all the tracks. I bet it'll be 32 or 40 tracks, a bit disappointing I was hoping Baby Wario was a driver and can't Wii's World at least get the names of the remakes right I mean honestly HEY HO BEACH?

32 is too much for a race anyway.

Wii Freak said:

I knew you could use mii's. That was surprising to hear about that.

Wiipaw said:

Uh, Reggie didn't promise that.

Luigi circuit was in ds version.

Jonny said:

My grand question is as to why there's a leader board on this and not Brawl. Glad there's one on this though.

Reggie never promised 32 player online at E3. He actually said, and this is a little off, but close: "Mario Kart Wii will support online races. Just how many players? You'll have to wait and see". 12 players online is more than enough, considering previous games had 8 player Grand Prix anyway.

NICE, sherbet land from n64. That was pretty much my favorite course in that game. I'm wondering if those are going to be reimagined or are going to look like they did in their games.

What?! There is no Monty Town on Mario Kart DS.

Wii Freak said:

If only you could use Mii characters in Brawl.

Nintendoof said:

Cool. Can't wait. The game is going to be great.

Jskrdude said:

I hope Dave is right. Because even Super Mario 64 had more than 16 tracks (it had 20: 16 racing, 4 battle).

embra said:

This sounds like fun. Keep the online games coming. I hope you can race random people and not only your friends.

Why couldn't it have been like this: SNES - Vanilla Lake 2, Donut Plains 3, Mario Circuit 1. N64 - Luigi Raceway (that should have been in DS), DK's Jungle Parkway, Frappe Snowland (the best N64 track). GBA - Beach Circuit, Riverside Park, Cheep Cheep Island. GCN - Waluigi Stadium and DK Mountain were perfect, but where's Mushroom City? DS - Peach Gardens, Desert Hills and Airship Fortress sounds perfect too.

All I was saying through the whole thing was, "HEY!" in the good, high-pitched way.

There was no 32 player promise that's so Sony fan. Oh look here comes Mario Kart to skish Gran Turismo's boring gameplay so I'll post on a Wii site and say Reggie lied. No he didn't, you just did. The motion steering will rock, it will be like Excite Truck but much much tighter.

Yay for Mii.

Oh yeah baby! Naruto's comin' to MARIO KART! A Mii of mine that is.

Splintercell4ever said:

Dang it nintendo4ever, do you have to steal half of my name! Anyway, I wonder what will we see at hey ho beach.

daringdan3721 said:

What? No Rainbow Road? I hope Diddy Kong Lover is right and that there are still unannounced tracks.

rey-rey said:

We all know how there are third party characters in Brawl, why not Mario Kart Wii? If you can we should make a petition to have pac-man in mario kart, don't you think so.

Avatar

TruBlu said:

Uh, no Pacman in Mario Kart please.

Avatar

Crimson Fang said:

Don't know if this is old news, but it looks like Bowser Jr., Baby Peach, and Koopa are in, if you zoom in on the new Wii's World pics.

davyt 0247 said:

I'm sure there will be a rainbow road, there always is, it will not be a mario kart game without it. Pacman is not in the game.

MJ said:

Mario Kart Wii Looks like the best. I hope it comes out on March 15.

Avatar

ToTaLgAmEr said:

It would be a terrible thing to come out on the 15 MJ because that's only 6 days after brawl and everyone would play brawl over mario kart.

How do you use your mii's on mario kart for the Wii?

Avatar

Ernie said:

If Nintendo isn't going to put link in, I will with the Mii feature. Look out for Kratos, Zero Suit Samus, Midna, Tingle and much much more.

A Guy said:

Midna? How can you make Midna with Miis? She's blue.

BG said:

How can you use your own mii?

sonic fan 1 said:

I'd get it, but I would kill to have Sonic in there (and besides he does not need a car!).

Yeah sonic team is like the best.

If you don't know this, you have to earn the Mii ability like you earn King Boo and Birdo.

How do I get the mii on Mario Kart.

Avatar

Parvin said:

Karla, just try and get one or more stars in the grand prix on any levels, or just do time trials and go against people with stars next to their name.
