    Woah wait what?! FUNKY KONG.

  • Cole Holbrook

    And does this mean character will hold items in their hands instead of them following behind the kart?

    • bobobobo

      double dash reference?

  • Braystar

    Cool screnes

  • GameGuy5

    Oh, Cranky Kong is to make an appearance in Tropical Freeze… Maybe he’ll revisit his old habits as in the original 3 DKC Games, as a supporting character that can take you to each world, and maybe have a minigame.

    • GameGuy5

      Never mind, it has been confirmed by Nintendo of America Cranky Kong will be running the item shop, since Cranky is now a playable character.

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    I start thinking Funky Kong is a possible 5th playabel character in Tropical Freeze.

    • Yoshidude1

      Yeah since he got his artwork.

      • hi

        well actually he will be the item shop owner

    • SuperZambezi

  • Yoshidude1

    I like that airport course on Mario Kart 8. Also that Dry Bowser canyon course looks amazing. Who could dislike the game????????

  • CuriousUser

    Still nothing on Mario Golf: World Tour, ever since April’s Nintendo Direct. And there’s nothing of Bayonetta 2 either.

  • CuriousUser

    And about the first screenshot, since NSMBWii, Thwomp’s have had a new design being dark grey with more realistic spikes. And what am I seeing?

  • Riley Preator

    where do u find these screenshots?

  • bobobobo

    notice that rosalina is driving daisy’s motorcycle….

    • hi

      actually it´s also peach and rosalina´s since there´s also rosalina´s emblem and it´s also written peach and daisy and also since it´s confirmed that kart customization from mario kart 7 is returning with more options

    • supamawiol0l

      Mario Kart 8 was announced in June…

  • supamawiol0l

    I knew they mentioned a 5th playable character… Funky Kong possibly?

    • GameGuy5

      Nope. Nintendo of America confirmed Funky will now be running the item shops.

      • supamawiol0l

        Oh… Why am I thinking there was going to be a 5th character? It was probably a rumor.

    • supamawiol0l

      For some reason, I didn’t like SM64. The controls were annoying for me (especially Wing Mario) and the sounds were annoying.

      • Luigiguy567

        It’s fine, It’s your opinion. It was basically the game of my childhood, so I have pretty much mastered the art of playing Mario 64.

        • GameGuy5

          That’s understandable. Plus, without Mario 64, who knows what would have become of 3D platforming?

          And my first video game console was the GameCube. I got it for my 7th birthday. And the very first video game I ever played was Super Mario Sunshine. I played the heck out of it! But I didn’t 100% it until I was 9. I don’t consider it the best 3D platformer gameplay-wise, but I think I would consider it my favorite Mario-game, just because of the awesome childhood experiences it brought to me.

          • Luigiguy567

            Super Mario Sunshine? *Nostalgia Overload*

          • GameGuy5

            Super Mario Sunshine was THE game, man. It may not be a Galaxy or Galaxy 2, but those 2 games came after it. Sunshine was just so different and was just so fun. :p

          • Luigiguy567

            As much as I would want something entirely new for the next 3D Mario Game (I have a few ideas myself), I would be really happy if they made a Sunshine 2.

  • CuriousUser

    Not only do I have ideas and predictions, but I also have assumption’s. I have some idea’s for what some Mario Kart 8 Courses could be called:
    *That San Fransisco Area could be called Peach Circuit (there was a Non-Circuit track in Mario Kart Wii, A Beach themed course called Daisy Circuit).
    *The Ghost House Course could be called Boo Manor (someone named Leroy believed it seeing the text underneath the Boohemoth at the entrance).
    *The Sugar based area could be called Candy Land (Lolly Land in the PAL Regions).
    *The Ruins Course could be called Thwomp Ruins, seeing it being mainly Thwomp inspired.
    *The Airport Course looking different from it did in SMS (Delfino Airstrip) could be called Delfino Airport (may not be as the course Beta named Delfino Mall was changed to Coconut Mall).
    No other name idea’s I can guess up now. Whenever we do hear the actual name’s, I’ll see how close enough they are.

    • GameGuy5

      The airport course will most likely be titled, “Sunshine Airport”. If you looked closely in the new MK8 trailer, throughout the course, you can see “Sunshine Airport” on the outside of the building, and along the barriers. But who knows, it could be subject to change in the future.

      • CuriousUser

        From watching GameXplain’s analysis just uploaded, the signs may have idea’s of what some of the courses will be called: Sweet Sweet Canyon, Cloudtop Cruise, Shy Guy Falls (something we’ve not seen yet), Bone Dry Dunes and Dolphin Shoals (likely the Beach Course, which we’ve not seen so far).

  • KinopioToad

    I wonder if Rosalina will be a ‘large’ character(referring to kart class/size, if they still have that or are going with classes like in MK7)
