The pic beside the one that’s used for the box art (not the actual box art) isn’t new.

On mariowiki there was a post that stated that the North American Boxart will be red instead of blue with a screenshot from Nintendo.com

So far there’s 16 items, and how many items total could there be? I think 20 (not counting coins). Since coins are in the game, don’t get your hope’s high for Fake Item Boxes, and one item that first appeared in Mario Kart Wii should appear, and 3 new items (since Mario Kart DS there’d been 3 new items).

Well. I hope the Fake Item Box, POW Box, Tanooki Leaf, and the Boo item come back. And maybe 2 or 3 new items like the Ice Flower.

Fake Item Boxes haven’t been in any Mario Kart games with coins, and usually there’s been one more total of item’s (not counting coins) than the previous Console or Handheld Mario Kart game (could have 20 in this case, and that there’s been 3 New Items introduced in each game since Mario Kart DS:
*MKDS introduced Bloopers, Bullet Bills and Triple Bananas.
*MKWii introduced Mega Mushrooms, POW Blocks and Thunder Clouds (one of the 3 should come back in MK8).
*MK7 introduced Fire Flowers, Super Leaves and the Lucky 7.

For once they have artwork for the Cam Lakitu, but does this mean no Lakitu racer?

Mario Kart 7 had artwork for both Racer Lakitu and the host or “fishin'” Lakitu.

Yes, in Braw mode you can choose 3 types of fight: Time, Stock and Coin. http://www.mariowiki.com/Super_Smash_Bros._Brawl#Brawl
And 9? 9 with the coin, right? or you’re counting with Lakitu?
