    Metal Mario felt like a Waluigi Replacement in MK7, but he’s back. I sure hope it won’t be only the Koopalings as new characters, we’ve all had expectation’s for other such characters like Kamek. Veteran’s not confirmed yet I hope are are Bowser Jr., Diddy and Dry Bowser.

      That’s when Mario Kart 8 will have about 40 characters.
