What does the coins do?
They slightly increase your top speed, up to a maximum of 10 coins.

 

@Mike, did you see what happened to me yesterday in one of our online races? :D:

The player using Morton knocked me out of my original powerslide trajectory and I went straight into the Goomba! :heh:

Funny thing was I kept accelerating trying to drive through it, and it took a few seconds to realise it wasn't working. :hehe:

That's the first (and hopefully last) time I ever need to use reverse in MK8. :laughing:

End the year of Luigi they said, we've shown enough appreciation they said...

 

Nah, Luigi deserves a promotion.

DLC?

Don't do this to me... I can't bear it.

 

Seriously, playable Plessie would be totally awesome!

(How the hell would that work, though?)

 

I get the feeling if this was real, the photo wouldn't be taken hovering over DK.

It'd be hovering over one of the actual meaningful characters.

(Then again, that E.Gadd icon, if fake, is very well made)

^ Petey Piranha was HUGE in Sunshine wasn't he, they fit him into a kart! :D

 

Seems a highly likely character given that characters from the previous Mario game seem to be Kart contenders. Although by that logic, if you're going to mock-up a fake, it's a good character to include.

 

Also.

 

Maybe this validates the reason why tracks were chosen for Battle Arena's... because they aim to use them for diferent race style battle modes instead.

Those battle modes better be free. They should have been in from the beginning. Characters and courses I'm fine paying for though. But out of everything, it's new tracks I want!

 

It's confirmed to be fake. Based on a video from last years e3!

Awww. I knew it was gonna be fake, but a little part of me wanted it to be real just for Plessie and E.Gadd.

I would have been so disappointed if it had been real. We need Bowser Jr., Dry Bones and/or Dry Bowser! :(

Baby. Fucking. Park.

 

I'm longing for it even more to see how it fares with the current issue of the first couple of places tending to roar ahead. It'd be so chaotic that even they can't escape.

They had to give him something after fobbing him off with Dr. Weegee.

 

 

He needed something he could call his own.
