I got nothing against your love for the game which I think it’s a solid game 7 out of 10 but even if Mario kart 8 deluxe had less characters then what it have now I still would choose Mario kart 8 deluxe.As some players approach exhaustion leading into the fifth straight month of content updates, I just want to point out that the game has hit a milestone that, for a long time, I thought would be incapable of any kart racer not under Nintendo's branding. CTR's remake has added 18 characters to the game with today's update just now pushing the total to 44. To my knowledge, no kart racer has had a cast this huge. Not only that, but now every single boss from the original franchise is selectable and in the same single title for the first time ever, with certain ones having more spoken dialogue than their entire franchise presence had before.
Beenox may not be perfect but for franchise fans the amount of support and love theyve given to the game is staggering. To me it establishes some true competition to tempt Nintendo to be more creative with their cast decisions moving forward, as CTR's cast is also not as proliferated with additional Mario costumes and baby variants.
And this chicken is here too
I understand the complaint about Papu Papu, but there's like 3 humans in the whole game and they don't seem to plan on adding more.
You did nothing wrong to regret about. Fanboys gonna fanboys. Comparing rosters of the only two popular Kart racing games makes sense.Ok I really regret bringing up the comparison at all, Was not trying to instill this kind of negativity around either game, I like both games.
In a lot of ways I get that people don't care about Crash's deeper cast but the amount of raw fan demand that gets heard is so amazing, that's what I'm trying to share. A good chunk of those characters in the bonus slot were asked for and delivered on.
I get why Geno is off-limits (he's not owned entirely by Nintendo, after all).It's something Mario Kart could do to learn from, a franchise with hundreds of beloved characters that constantly adds unwanted newly created babies and metal reskins instead of long requested favourites like Kamek, Geno, E. Gadd etc. (god knows how many years I'm going to have to wait until I can finally play as Kamek)
They could if they're gonna implement original characters, but they're gonna focus on adding the remaining characters from the franchise which are all animals or mutants.
It's a series that is mostly about anthropomorphic animals. Why should they be forced to to change that? Do you want Sonic to start bringing humans back to? That would just be jarring at that point.
Is Captain Syrup a Nintendo EPD character? If not then it's too bad since she has no chance. When it comes to the Mario Kart roster it's basically Nintendo EPD bonanza witht the exception of Waluigi who was created as filler. You can even see it on the Nintendo guest characters.I get why Geno is off-limits (he's not owned entirely by Nintendo, after all).
However, I do agree with your point. There are so many cool, beloved characters that never got a chance. Even more so, Mario Kart is such an enormous series that, just like Smash, it could be used to put more obscure characters to the forefront and popularize them. Imagine if Mario Kart featured characters like Captain Syrup - she could be integrated into the greater Marioverse rather than being stuck in an unfortunately dead side series, and maybe even start becoming a minor antagonist or supporting character in mainline Mario games. And I'd bet good money on her becoming really popular really fast. Sassy lady pirate? She's basically bound to be a fan favourite.
I mean, people spend 100s of dollars on lootboxes on Overwatch to hope to get skins for their character who they only see the gun of outside of killcams.
I'm aware of the circumstances. I just don't agree with their decision to keep it to EPD characters only.Is Captain Syrup a Nintendo EPD character? If not then it's too bad since she has no chance.

It looks like Pauline, Nabbit and maybe the forgettable bunnies are the next characters to shill on Mario spin offs.
I mean is it that different from Mario Kart?i know they're different characters but come on
and it's just not them. the original cast from the PS1 game is good but they keep adding these nobodies and pulling from these mediocre games ver few people cared about. it's not really a good cast imo.
edit: i think the post launch support as far as adding new tracks regularly has been excellent tho. credit where credit is due.
I have the game and I get the same feeling. I think it's great that there's so many characters, but it's tough to play since I play this more on a casual level, so there's a good chance I'll never see any of them.
Seems like stuff becomes a permanent addition after 3 months.
Every month there's been three characters, one that is unlocked as a reward for completing the first tier of the battle pass (around 2 hours of gameplay, even less if you're trying to unlock it) and two that are unlockable for 1500 coins each. After they've been out for two months, they return.
Some content is unlockable at all times via some of the modes.
