I would like to give a special thanks to vestan and Luminaire for encouraging me on making this OT. This is the first time I have ever made an OT, so I am a little nervous about how this turns out! I am happy to hear any suggestions you may have to help me improve this OT. Happy racing!

Wait... there’s no multiplayer? Yeesh, I haven’t been paying attention; wonder how it’s going to be a success now.

Will this come to Apple TV (I guess not since it seems to be portrait oriented) and have controller support on IOS?

Those under construction videos are great.

No multiplayer.... Well, I'll try it for a bit. Would be fun to play with humans however.

I'm hoping to see it there when I go to download it tomorrow. Multiplayer is such an essential part of Mario Kart that I will be very saddened if it isn't in.

I feel like the entire point of a mobile Mario Kart would be the fact you can just play local multiplayer with anyone. It'd be a mega hit.

Yet here we are.

I haven't seen any confirmation on Apple TV or IOS controller support to my knowledge, but if it is confirmed tomorrow I will add it to the OT. :)

Awesome OT Gartooth!! Stoked to play this. I really enjoyed the beta, so I'm excited to see the new content in the final!

It's crazy to me how they decided to make it single player only. Hopefully they're saving it for an update later on?

Either way, the beta was uh...not good.

No multiplayer is baffling. Who the hell wants to play a Mario Kart game where you can only race against the cheating AI.

Echoing popular opinion, no multiplayer component is a huge shocker. Isn’t that like the entire essence of what Mario Kart is and why it’s so popular to begin with? lol

I’m guessing this is just Nintendo being super careful not to risk cannibalizing 8 Deluxe’s and (eventually) 9’s sales, but c’mon. Could’ve at least made it 1-on-1.

Apple Arcade kind of killed my interest in this game. The idea of a gacha or microtransactions in a game that really shouldn't have them is enough where I'm out.

Controller support and Apple TV support and this game could have been great for the family as maybe an introduction to mario kart (idea being to funnel people to the switch, etc).

Fantastic first OT, OP!

There was an overview trailer of sorts with a voiced Lakitu that was posted to the Nintendo Mobile YouTube channel earlier today (the 24th):

Really hope it has multiplayer once the game officially launches. That's one of the main issues I had with the beta. If not, what's the point of playing this watered-down version of Mario Kart?

OT turned out nice!

I'll have to give this a look. I do hope it has/gets multiplayer as it'd be nice to race against faceless jerks while on my lunch break.

No multiplayer is crazy to me, will still try it out since it’s free but I probably won’t stick with it.

Expecting a huge backlash given like all of the top tweets on twitter are casuals saying they can’t wait to whoops their friends asses...

Like influential people on twitter really think it’s multiplayer, I’m scared for the backlash 😭

a single player only Mario Kart sounds like hell tbh

combine that with the fact it's a mobile title with in-app currency purchases and I have to wonder if this will keep my attention for very long. guess we'll see soon enough?
