Reconfirmation of what we know is coming this Thursday.

I don't know about ye but this will be a first ever for me. Never in general play have I had to use the brake button. It'll shake things up substantially.

The closest I've come is taking my thumb off the accelerator for a fraction of a second!

Oh come on Nyurpers...

Has nobody ever experienced a massive cluster fuck with items and racers coming at you from all sides resulting in you lying upside down somewhere in a back alley with the only option is having to push B to back up and get the hell out of there?

...Nope. Being as honest as my Wii Wheel usage in MK8 (100%, you numptys) there!

 

Only way is forward, baby!

Turned my Wii U on yesterday for the first time in months, apparently I've only used it for 4 hours this year.

 

Looking forward to the DLC, 200cc will change the way the game is played. Thursday night should be interesting.

My 3 star ranks continually being destroyed by a barrage of items on the final race, all hitting. Hate when that happens

Not every track will need the brakes on 200cc. Rainbow Road SNES won't need them whereas Rainbow Road Wii U will.

New track pack DLC is amazing in almost every respect. :D

 

Though no 200CC Option for me... do I need to download it separately or load up the game for a third time?

 

Will sort it out later, got to go to work now :( but the tracks are pretty amazing and I can't wait to hopefully try them out in 200CC later assuming it appears.

Do you need 150cc gold in the new DLC cups as well to unlock 200cc?
