IGN: "Watching Nintendo's E3 presentation, I was thrilled to see Mario Kart 8 adding an idea as simple and clever as hover karts. Suddenly tracks were freed from horizontal constraints, and courses could now spiral into wild vertical twists in ways they never could before.
Despite my excitement though, a thought crept into my head - if Mario Kart is now embracing futuristic, wild racing... what does that mean for F-Zero? Granted, we haven't seen an F-Zero entry in about a decade, but would Kart's hover karts help or hinder Captain Falcon's return?
The answer, unfortunately for Nintendo fans across the world, isn't too reassuring."
