Mario Party Legacy

Metal Mario Added to Mario Kart Arcade GP DX

Metal Mario is joining the playable character roster for Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, at least for arcade systems in Japan. The announcement comes quite some time after the announcement of Rosalina as a playable character back in December of last year.

Since then, several characters from the current roster have gotten new alternate costumes, including the recently revealed Dry Bowser alternate costume for Bowser. The others include Fire Mario, Ice Luigi, Blue Toad, Red Yoshi, and Strawberry Don-chan.

    I wish this would come to my city…

  • T0blet

    It appears me and E.Gadd were right about both Metal Mario and Rosalina last year. The character icons now align perfectly. 🙂

    • Dude1230321

      Well, this is true, but there’s one thing that i do not understand… Why Nintendo didn’t put in a Honey Queen emblem in the arcade cabinet?
      (P.S. It’s very unfair that this Mario Kart has Dry Bowser as a palette swap of Bowser while in Mario Kart Wii they are two separate characters).

  • VideoTanooki

    I guess his costume would be Gold Mario

  • Boo3DSmashBoo

    It’s weird see Dry Bowser as a costume of Bowser while Metal Mario isn’t one of Mario.

  • Dry Bowser for Mario Kart 8!

    • Boo3DSmashBoo

      PLZ NINTENDO!! YOU STILL HAVE TIME!!

    • Bowser498

      Um, Mario Kart 8 was already released, unless you are talking about dlc. :p

      • No, I’m not talking about the DLC everyone wants…

        • Bowser498

          Oh, ok!

          • It was sarcasm, if you didn’t notice it yet 😛

          • Bowser498

            lol… I already could tell that it was sarcasm… 😛

    • Everyone wants a DLC with arenas, Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, Birdo…

    • It’s happening…but not as I would like. What are you doing to Mario Kart, Nintendo? 🙁

  • Person McPerson

    thanks to Luigiguy567, I knew this in advance.

  • Person McPerson

    oooh dry bowser looks beast

  • LudwigVonKoopa7777

    BEAUTY! IT IS DRY BOWSER!!!

  • Boo3DSmashBoo

    ohhh, strawberry… Boo like.

  • Braystar

    For the people who think that MM sholud be a pallette swap for Mario, he already has one, Fire Mario, so stop saying he should be and anyway, he’s a seperate person, an “anti” mario.

    • Boo3DSmashBoo

      No offence but if he’s “anti” Mario why he has Mario in the name and why he’s just like Mario but made of metal?

      • Mi

        I agree, Thank you!

      • Braystar

        Bowser tried to create an evil mario, using Mario’s DNA from the Metal Cap Cave, but it failed, and how I think MM was born…

        • Boo3DSmashBoo

          Nice theory, lol

        • Bowser498

          Lol…

        • koola

          Wouldn’t the “anti-Mario” be Shadow Mario from Sunshine? Metal Mario is just Mario wearing the metal cap. No stupid backstory necessary

          • Braystar

            Well how do Mario and MM be at the same place at the same time BM has used a time machine before, so U can’t argue about that, @$$.

  • Luigiguy567

    *Sigh* I already found this earlier, but it sucks the lazy recolor himself is starting to become more and more common in Mario Games. I know Nintendo is trying to make a throwback to Mario 64 and Smash, but why bother bringing him back if you’re just going to give him the personality of a baked potato?

  • king K.Rool and Krystal

    Dry bowser?! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!
