Nintendo never said they were all of them. Also, they need to keep something a secret until the release of the game.

You would think so but they seem to have shown us everything the game has to offer from release but there is a small chance of anther row and I would love that but DLC is a big possibility

Personally I love Thwomp Ruins and Mount Wario musics and I think Tick Tock Clock and Piranha Plant Slide musics are better this time around. Moo Moo Meadows with this violin theme seems better than MKWii too.

About Mario Kart 8 itself unfortunately Toadette isn’t a starter driver. The starter drivers are: all showed at the E3 except Toadette, the babies except Baby Rosalina and Shy Guy. So 16 starters, 14 unlockable.

Well, all my plans for the Mario Kart games with online mode is to beat all the cups with Triple Stars before playing online mode. So it wouldn’t be a problem for me.

Which track are you guys excited for? I’m excited for Cloudtop Cruise (because Airships), Shy Guy Falls (riding a waterfall), Elecrodome (a whole city in a techno party), and Rainbow Road (dat Space Station).

Wario Summit (looks incredible) Cloudtop Cruise (looks so fun) Bowsers castle (looks interesting)Shy Guy Falls (Cant wait to fly down a huge water fall)
Dolphin shoals (cant wait to swim on a giant eel) and my most anticipated Retro track is N64 Rainbow Road

I can’t get enough of Mount Wario and Dolphin Shoals.

Electrodrome and Sunshine Airport too, actually.

Hmmm… I think Star Cup may already be my favourite cup!

I know it isn’t absolute confirmation, but it seems rather legit.

I reckon there will be DLC for this game, so Diddy Kong could easily be a DLC character, and possibly Bowser Jr. too!

Electrodrome should be the Main Theme πŸ™‚

It sounds very futuristic, which would be good for this game since anti-gravity tires (and even gliders and propellers) are very futuristic and overall the song is just great! I can imagine myself sitting around on the Title Screen just listening to this song FOREVER!

Gotta love the DS Wario Stadium / Waluigi Pinball remix. Why, Nintendo, did you have to put Waluigi Pinball in MK7? WHY???

I like Waluigi Pinball, but a time Waluigi isn’t playabel in that game and that track have Waluigi’s face just right there I think it’s a bit weird to see that track. (I know it’s because Nintendo want and some fans want Nintendo to put that track in the game too, but continue to be a bit weird that).

Perhaps not the right thread to say this, but Mario Kart 8 easily has the best selection of Nitro tracks out there. Aside from 1 or 2 okay tracks, the rest are absolutely amazing. Could be because of the graphics, but they’re just so beautiful to look at, and I’m sure they’re even more beautiful to race on!

Here’s a fun thing about the electrodome tracks. That track is a kind of reference to the koopalings. First a thing who everyone know, in the course there’s board where appears the name “Larry Lights” and there’s more references like this with other characters all over the track. All the koopalings names are rock star names, that course is essentially about music and has various things refering to them, I have no doubt one that track is a bit inspires in the koopalings. (Sorry if the comment is confused)
