Should Mario Kart Have Other Nintendo Characters?

Mario Kart 8 is just a few weeks away and you could easily argue that it is the biggest Wii U game to be released in 2014 (well maybe its tied with Super Smash Bros Wii U) anyway as amazing as Mario Kart 8 looks there is just one thing that really needs expanding on and that is the roster.

I'm not too sure how I would feel if the game went all smash like with characters but adding the kongs I see as OK as DK is already in the game.

but DK is apart of Mario's History, so I see why the Kongs are in there, They should just add characters from the universe of Mario and call it a day.

* 5 cups

The 5th cup is 4 tracks of Non-mario NINTENDO games.

EXample: 5th cup = Nintendo Cup


* Legend of Zelda - Hyrule
* Kirby -Anywhere
* Chrom - Fire Emblem - anywhere from Awakening
* Sonic - Anywhere from the first 2 Sonic games.

* One extra cup gives us 4 more tracks to choose from for Retro tracks in the next Mario Kart game as well.

Kind of running thin on the tracks, and I think they need to boost up the New tracks to replenish for Future retro tracks.

They need to start looking ahead to next Mario Kart game, NOW.

Sonic isn't Nintendo, he's Sega.

I'm fully aware of Sonic being Sega and not Nintendo, but if you haven't been living underground lately, you'd know Sega & Nintendo have been working together kind of.

This would allow Sonic to make a cameo that I think some people might appreciate, some might not.

no. Mario kart universe is set on donkey and Mario family. There is a lots of characters there.

I think, they mean other nintendo characters, like Link from Zelda. To add so many different ones, like in Smash Bros would be too much I guess.

DryBoneKoopa851479d ago

I wouldn't object to some other new faces. Like Chargin Chuck or Professor E. Gad from Luigi's Mansion. Even cameo characters like Sonic from All star Racing would be kind of cool just to see.

I could be in the minority here but maybe it could help people who were not Mario Kart fan's get into the racer just because they see Sonic there.

Sonic would be cool! I agree!

I think Mario Kart should evolve to Nintendo Kart. Racing in Hyrule would be awesome.
