Dumping my screenshots / videos from the other thread:


Ok here's what we all saw comimg: character unlocks are the gacha mechanic. For example Luigi is a rare character. Each character has a special item.

Some of the characters.




So far the game looks incredibly bland and generic tbh
Seems like the amount of items you can have depends on the character. Also 2 laps per race



Gameplay video:

Nintendo won't be able to take gameplay off the internet with me around :P

For those who have it: how many courses are there?

How many speed classes (50cc, 100cc etc) are there?

I don't have access to the beta but from the footage the game doesn't seem good to me. I don't know, I think it feels too bland and lacks Nintendo magic.

From the footage the game seems really slow? As in the speed that the kart is moving.

Maybe this will feel like a normal pace when actually playing it on a mobile though.

I'm not sure what I find more disappointing: The game looking even more shallow than kart racers usually are or the dreadful mobile UI that they already used on Super Mario Run.

This is precisely why I wanted something radically different and not Mario Kart Lite.

Ok so certain characters have benefits playing certain maps it seems.
Example:
Toadette being used in 3ds toad circuit gives her 3 item slots in the race, but 1 item slot in other maps.

Luigi gets a 3-item boost in Luigi mansion map etc..

DS Luigi's Mansion is in? Any more tracks that aren't on my list posted above?

Looks like Mario Kart but with typical mobile monetization.

We may have our first Nintendo mobile hit!

Anyone know if it requires log in into your Nintendo acc when you launch it? Just curious if it will work with apk file only.

Is there any gameplay footage of the game yet? I can't seem to play the attached video above.

Yes, DS Luigi mansion is in as well as a "R" version? Not sure what that character means but it has a different stage thumbnail.

Also Koopa Troopa as a character should be added, got him and his kart for free after winning a race.

Enjoying it so far! I have Toadette, Luigi, and Peach. Going to try and save up more emeralds so I can do a ten pull!

It's fun enough, but I assume the progression gating on higher levels and p2w mechanics are going to make it gross pretty fast.

I'll probably play it a bit casually at least and try not to take it too seriously. At least in beta no one can pay to be ahead.

What do you pull for, characters only or also gliders and karts?
All of these.

Oof but I guess Nintendo learned their lesson after Mario Run.
As long as it kinda feel like Mario Kart, it should be OK, well if it has landscape mode otherwise it’s horrible.

How does it actually play? It almost looks like you trace your finger around judging from the gameplay

To be honest, I expected something a little crazier on mobile with all the secrecy surrounding this game. It seems to be gacha Mario Kart with heavy asset recycling from 7 and 8D, and simplified mechanics.

That's honestly what I was expecting (though, I was hoping for some more new tracks, or tracks that weren't brought back yet so they could just put them in 8 Deluxe)
