Seven New Screens of Mario Kart 8

UPDATE: Two new images have been released, this time for Toad Harbor!

Thanks to Nintendo of Europe, seven new screenshots for the upcoming Mario Kart 8 have been released. The screens show off courses that we have already seen, but it’s always nice to see an update! See Mario Circuit, Thwomp Ruins, and Sweet Sweet Canyon in the screens below!

Who wants N64 Royal Raceway as a retro track in the game? The jump part can be a glider part and the Peach’s Castle cameo can be part of the track this time, it wasn’t in MK64, because of limited software. Who’s with me?

I’m with you! I’d also like to see Mushroom City (GCN) make a return!

I suspect that if ever Royal Raceway were a Retro Track, the Castle would now be off limit’s.

Why? This time, it can be a Anit Gravity part, I can’t described it how, but we’ll have to see in a future trailer or in the launch trailer.

i’m hoping for a snow level,since the first mario kart(excluding the arcades)there was always at least one snow level,and in mk8,they still didn’t confirm any new snow track,nor a retro snow track(i’m hoping to see rosalina’s ice world as an retro track.)

The beanstalk sky is “Cloudtop Cruise” and i Think the water coaster track is “Water Park” due to it says it on a mailbox in the track itself and an ad in “Sunshine Airport.”

I’ve heard speculation that Water Park is supposed to be a play on words that doesn’t work as well in English as it does in Japanese.

Some think it’s supposed to be Wa-ter Park, as in Wa-rio and Wa-luigi. They say there are two Wario & Waluigi rides visible in the course too.

I don’t know that I believe that but I do think the name is Water Park for the reasons you list.

I suspect a Luigi Circuit course, which every second Mario Kart game has had.

I can’t recall any game with no Ice based course.

That’s true. SNES – Vanilla Lake 1/2 ; N64 – Sherbet Land/Frappe Snowland; GBA – Snow Land ; GCN – Sherbet Land ; DS – DK Pass ; Wii – DK Summit (also known as DK’s Snowboard Cross) ; 3DS – Rosalina’s Ice World.

Not sure whether you’d consider Sweet Sweet Canyon that sort of based (Daisy Circuit though not looking like a beach course still was) or not. We’ve not seen any Jungle/Forest based course either: like one with Toxic Water.

Would it count as a snow based level like how Daisy Circuit was counted as a Beach based level, Tart Top sort of did.

maybe a mix of the heart form mkdd and the super leaf from mk7.like the kart or bike would have a tail,and the character would have the cat suit and then the tail would protect the kart or bike from behind and and also hit anyone that pursues the kart.and the claws would scratch anyone that is next to the kart or bike

My new items would be
Ice flower – freezes enemies and you have to shake the control stick to get loose
Double cherry – has a clone next to you and red shells only hit the clone
Luma – your car can do the spin attack hitting shells,banana’s and people

Since there’s Coin’s, probably not for Fake Item Boxes since they’ve not been in any game’s with coin’s, not even MKSC and MK7.

An Item introduced in MKWii should appear.
