    All they need do is make Mario Kart DS but up it for the Wii. That game was perfect.

    There's lots of stuff I'd like improved upon in Mario Kart DS...I'm really happy they're possibly going in a more fresh direction than just a upport of DS.

    So excited.

    I finally broke down and decided to buy a Wii this November (I get 3 paychecks in November, I only need 2 a month to pay rent). Extra money = Wii. It's too bad they will still be impossible to find.

    I love Mario Kart. Plus 16 player online. Yessss.

    :( Just Early 2008 currently. And with Ninty's track record, that means Holiday.

    Much like 'early' 2007 for Mario Galaxy ;)


    But yeah Mario Kart is an automatic purchase for the wii.

    The stunt thing wasn't new to me, i saw some screens on a gaming blog of some character doing tricks and they mentioned that was a new component to the game. The online battle and 16 players races is a nice perk though! I can't wait for that game, it's going to be awesome.

    Here are some other hopes of mine:

    1. Fix the damn blue shell and put it back to the style of Mario Kart 64 where it hits everyone in a row in front of you, not the lousy way they changed it for Double Dash.

    2. Bring back actually compelling battle mode! Double Dash's was absolutely trash! All they needed to do was remake the MK64 levels with updated graphics and weapons! Hopefully they'll remake block fort, that level was awesome.

    3. While they're at emulating MK64's battle, why not remake some of the more memorable levels with updated graphics? :D

    ^ Yea I'm hoping they bring back some classic levels. The wide choice of tracks in the DS version really gave it replayability.

    I suppose online=downloadable tracks? I just hope they hold their promise of free tracks (wasn't it Nintendo's original plan to ¨have the Wii glow blue when it downloaded a new track overnight¨?).

    Blargh.

    They were so factual about it, too. I'm curious if Nintendo phoned them up and yelled at them for saying too much ahead of time.

    I'm very curious to hear when Nintendo announced this, since I was sitting in the audience and didn't hear them number the players.
