Man this looks so fun! Mario Kart is becoming F-Zero with items. Being able to spin attack people during gravity altered portions is a good change I think.

Seeing Roy and Ludwig playable is so awesome! I never really took in the color of their shells. So just seeing them from the back intrigues me.

What I want to know is if there is a battle mode and if so what is it like? I loved the original battle mode but all the others have not done it for me. That would be one thing that might get me excited for this game, that and the Koopalings that has me interested at the very least.

Battle mode was never my favorite aspect of Mario Kart, (however I do like playing it also), but I can't see them leaving it out. If they did that would be one of the most incredibly stupid moves for Mario Kart. What I want to know if it has the same options that Mario Kart Wii had, being able to pick what courses you want, how many, computer difficulty, ect. When Mario Kart 7 didn't have all that I wasn't happy, (but something tells me MK8 won't have it either. Guess I'll just have to wait and see).
