Mario Kart 7
[Image: Mario-Kart-7-Logo.jpg]
The newest installment will come racing in this December on the Nintendo 3DS!

Here I'll post information and updates about the game, discussion of it is encouraged. Tongue

New features
Air Gliders and Scuba capabilities are in karts now, allowing players to explore a race track to its fullest both airborne and underwater. They can be used to your advantage in races.

Customization of vehicles is possible, you can use different sizes and parts to make your own vehicle.

Additionally, Coins return to Mario Kart! Collecting them allows you to go faster and may unlock some things.

New Characters
Metal Mario, and Lakitu are now Playable characters! Wait, who will do the countdown now?...

Additionally, Shy Guy, the racer used by guests on Mario Kart DS, and Miis from Mario Kart Wii are also playable!

Sorry, but I was not able to find a picture of your Mii! Tongue

New Power ups!
A power up that resembles a Super Leaf from Super Mario Bros. 3 appears in this game.

No one knows what the leaf does, but I can see from the picture, it looks like it will circle around you and flip over other racers! Tongue

Another new power up is the Fire Flower, upon using it, you will be able to fire out fireballs at people for a short time.

A modification to the infamous Blue shell has been made, it no longer can fly. Unsure on how this will work.

Lastly, a item made after the "7" in Mario Kart 7's logo is in the game, no additional details on that yet.

Credits to The Mario wiki as I stole barrowed the images from there.
Confirmed Retro stages; will be updated if more are added.
[spoiler] SNES Mario Circuit 2
N64 Kalimari Desert
N64 Luigi Raceway
DS Airship Fortress
DS Luigi's Mansion

DS Waluigi Pinball
DS DK Pass
Wii Maple Treeway [/spoiler]

RE: Mario Kart 7
Well Blue Shell had no wings in Mario Kart 64, right? it just meant any racer in front of you was endangered... I'm honestly super-excited about the underwater thing XD though I don't really care about the gliding Tongue and Fire Flowers now? That's handy, it'll be great for battle mode Big Grin as will the Tanooki Leaf!! Oh, and Kalimari Desert!! 8D oooh, I love that track X3

Metal Mario and Lakitu? But Lakitu's meant to be taking care of the racers! D: and I'd have thought making the metal thing a powerup would've been better, idk.

All the same, this game is gonna be a total blast!

Just noticed that the racing Lakitu has a Red shell, the Green Shelled Lakitu will remain at his job doing the countdown. Probably to avoid some kind of paradox. Tongue

I also thought that a Metal box should've been a power up, it work by slowing you down when going uphill, or speeding you up when going downhill. Tongue

Also forgot to add that the game will have Nintendo WiFi connection capabilities.

RE: Mario Kart 7
One thing I'd like to cover is the mechanics of drifting.
For anyone who has played Mario Kart DS, or any game before that, you might notice that the drifting system is somewhat difficult to use, and if you are the one of many who used online play with Mario Kart DS, I'm pretty certain you've run into snakers. Snakers, in my own opinion are players who take advantage or abuse the drifting system so that they can get far ahead in the lead in races and almost always win. In Mario Kart Wii a new drifting system was introduced, that make drifting much easier, and made it unable for players to snake.

In Mario Kart 3DS, the Mario Kart DS drifting system has rumored to have returned. However there are some people reporting that the drifting system works the same as Wii, which I HOPE is true, because I don't want another fun Wi-Fi game ruined by snakers.

RE: Mario Kart 7
yeah I found that I enjoy MKWii most because of the drifting mechanics - spinning out in 64 was frustrating and the DS just made it difficult... I'm not gonna start on Double Dash -_-
