Mario Kart Wii U: Five Things Nintendo Should Consider

Wii U Turn writes: "Not too long ago, Satoru Iwata told us that Mario Kart Wii U was coming. With enthusiasm, he told Nintendo fans that it would be at this year’s E3, and that it would not just be there, but that it would be playable as well. Excitement ensued Mario Kart fans, and for sure many are speculating on what kind of new features we will see, along with what retro ideas will return from the Mario Kart game universe.

With the Wii U, Nintendo has plenty of options to refresh the series, and perhaps even showcase the value of the Wii U to the general consumer. Mario Kart Wii U could become the pick-up-and-play title that attracts a general audience by showing off the Wii U’s capabilities.

What should Nintendo bring back to the series? What should stay dead?" (Mario Kart U, Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, Wii U)

All I have to say, I hope Nintendo make the next Mario Kart better(graphic/overall playability) than Sonic all star racing transformed.And If they don't, MK will most likely be a failure.

What has made ALL Mario Kart games since the SNES one totally unplayable is the handicap feature. The fact that the players that are lagging get better stuff and go faster just makes the games massively annoying, boring. They don´t reward talent at all and it's just up to luck which makes the replay value zero.
The handicaps for the items and speed should be selectable. Playing a race at a party with newbies it would be fine so everyone could enjoy it. But when playing against other experienced racers it's a game killer.

Please for the love of God, bring back the Feather from the first Super Mario Kart and make that be an item that counter acts the Blue Shell. Just as its about to hit you, you use the Feather and jump out of the way of the attack. The Blue Shell needs a counter measure. Also make it so that all weapons are random again from the past, not if your in first or second you only get Bananas or Green Shells. First place players should be able to get Blue Shells to attack the person in last place, Starmen and Bullet Bills to to help increase their lead and Red Shells to attack the second and third place racers.
