False Rumor or Not, Mario Kart 8 Needs a Track Editor

Obstructed Views: There’s a rumor going around that Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U will feature not only customizable karts/bikes/hovercraft things, but also include a track editor. If that’s the case, then Nintendo might finally be wising up a little bit and listening to the rest of the world. Of course, it’s just a rumor. A rumor that has no validity.

Because people like options, unless it's the Xbox One Remote control, then it's a slap in the face and wrong.

Joking aside, people like options and while I don't think Mario Kart 8 needs a track editor, I couldn't see a track editor hurting the game. It would probably increase play time and many people would have a blast making new / challenging stages to play their friends on.

It would be perfect for the gamepad.

Imagine drawing the shape of the track from a birds eye view on the gamepad. Simply genius. Nintendo should really try to utilize it more often

Becouse it's a beautiful addition and will make the game and adding more bang for buck value is why!

If true this game will become the 2nd system seller. Just 3 more to go! Why? Mine craft craze, competition, consumer wants.

Due to nintendo's high caliber game creating skills I knew I would buy a wiiu, only problem the system has atm is lack of hardcore games but there on the way! 2014 is a good year for wiiu!

This would add TONS of replayability to the game. The one on the Wii is already highly replayable, but with a track editor the sky is the limit!

If it's like Trackmania I can die in peace.

I don't see it happening at launch. Perhaps, maybe as a dlc add on

"Perhaps, maybe as a dlc add on"

No way. Nintendo tends to shy away from DLC anything, so I couldn't see them doing that. It seems far more likely that it will either be there or won't be included than being patched in or DLC.

mii-gamer1489d ago

Nintendo has been experimenting with dlc. NSMBU, Fire Emblem, Pikmin 3. I don't see why not

WPX1489d ago

It could be a free DLC add-on later on.
I'd welcome it.
I like free.

It's probably more likely that we will get some DLC tracks, but a track editor is a great idea. Talk about "game of forever!"
