Perhaps Nintendo will find a way to squeeze it into the direct.

Do you get any reward for 3-star-ing every cup? (no details pls, unless the reward is a stamp!)

 

If you get at least 1 star in every cup you unlock something but the game doesn't show stars by your name online now :(

LAST MINUTE LEAGUE RECRUITMENT

 

If there is anyone who hasn't signed up for the league night tonight that is free from 8pm til 9.30pm, the league needs you. We've just lost 2 players in quick succession from the same group.

Bloody hell! They did not waste any time!

Just when you think this couldn't become more of a thing.

 

Those are @Retro_Link's designs.

That's pretty sweet, because gunning for 3 stars in every race is soul destroyingly luck based at times. If I only need a star overall then that gives some leeway.

Mount Wario is amazing.

 

I'd love for more tracks to be single lap if the above is any indication of quality.

It has just arrived for me. 3 days earlier than expected, but now I'm off to work. Won't get around to playing until Sunday. Can't wait! Oh, and my free game will be Wii Party U. Don't judge I have a liitle one, and loads of his cousins always visit their Uncle Nintendo's house.

I don't know how people manage to get over those two leaves in Cloudtop Cruise, everytime I try I go over the first leaf at an angle and then crash into the beanstalk and fall :(

Just watch the time trials. Is usually a good way for me to discover what I do wrong in certain corners and such...! : peace:

1. How fucking short is Rainbow Road? I don't know why, but I just noticed. The N64 version could also do with being longer (but not as long as the original...*shudder*)

 

2. Wouldn't this game benefit amazingly from DLC tracks? I'd love to get even more tracks. They could sell something like a 16 pack of tracks for £15. Hell, I'd buy it.

Congratulations! You beat Mirror Mode!

There's 2 Mario's, Luigi, Bowser and Rosalina.

 

(Although I've never heard the Rosalina one on opening the game)

I'd prefer it if the N64 one was 2 laps and not one, mainly so I can drool over the graphics :heh:

The MK64 Rainbow Road music is also the best. Love it.

 

Damn those bouncing chain chomps, though.

As the one lap on that feels much shorter than one lap on the original, I think three laps would definitely be fine.

Just checked my premium points and I got 400 points for "purchasing" my free game.

I usually "miss" the second lap in the N64 race. When that Lakitu guy shows up with the third lap sign, I'm like where was the second lap? Fall behind in that race and there's no hope :p

I used to always fail the leaf shortcut but I've figured it out now. You can just drive right onto the first leaf, don't try and drift or hop onto it or anything just turn normally and drive on it then hop late so you can jump onto the 2nd leaf.
