Holy hell nearly all of these tracks look amazing!

Love Hyrule Circuit, Mute City and Dragon Driftway! Ice Ice Outpost looks cool too, but that was shown for a split second so I won’t get too excited about that.

But why SNES Rainbow Road? I mean it looks much better and all than it did in the 3DS, but I would’ve preferred a GBA Rainbow Road instead.

I would’ve preferred the Double Dash Rainbow Road… 🙂

I’m torn because I would’ve loved to see how beautiful Double Dash’s Rainbow Road is in HD, but I also want to get GBA Rainbow Road out of the game so I don’t have to spend too long waiting for the Double Dash version 🙂

I know, the GBA Rainbow Road would look so awesome in MK8! =) But yes, I agree that Double Dash should be saved for a future pack or Mario Kart.

Well, with SNES Rainbow Road, they probably wanted to create that super nostalgic feeling…. but I wanted GCN Rainbow Road……

Also, did anyone notice that during the Nintendo Minute that there were jewels instead of coins considering that it has to do with Zelda… Who knows, maybe there will be an Animal Crossing element (to replace coins) in Pack 2! =P

“And in Kirby’s case, a somewhat unsettling helmet design”
Seriously? That helmet looks adorable!

It’s not the best Nintendo Direct ever. It doesn’t even show any new information for Mario Party 10 or Woolly World. But I do like a lot of levels in Captain Toad, the Waddle Dee feature in Rainbow Curse, and that Majora’s Mask 3D is confirmed so everyone can shut up about it. Although I might probably try it out. Plus, I like Duck Hunt’s trailer.

Very True. I really wanted to see if there was a main antagonist in Woolly World. Also, we didn’t get much from E3 about Mario Party 10. I wanted to see if classic mode is an option.

Based on the events at E3, there’s the Bowser mode and “Classic Mode” which….is the Mario Party 9 gameplay.

Don’t worry, that was the demo. Maybe it’ll change later, after all there’s 1 year missing yet.

Of all the tracks, I’m most excited for Ice Ice Outpost. Mostly because I wanna know how it’s layed out.

Dragon Driftway and Ice Ice Outpost seem to be two of the best original tracks yet! Thy look really awesome and the Hyrule track looks phenomenal as well (I like that there are rupees haha)

I agree, the Zelda references are pretty “unexpected”, and there is a secret shortcut if you hit all three Anti-Gravity boosts. Also, I would’ve replaced SNES Rainbow Road with a Nitro Track that is interesting. 🙂

Every time I look at this video, I just shake my head repeating “Why Nintendo? Why?” DS Rainbow Road would be SO much better.

This combo is going to be really OP:
Super-heavyweight + Blue Falcon + (Cyber) Slick + Weight class glider (super glider etc.)
It gives 5.50 speed and 2.00 (tier 2) acceleration
