I gotta say, that´s my most wanted feature for the next Mario kart...4 people using Wii remotes, and two using gamepads (since the Wii U will eventually be able to support two gamepads).

Do I think it will feature six local players? No.

Bet with pezus: If the Wii U has over 150% of the Vita userbase when the next CoD Launches, and has a synchronized launch, then it will outsell the lifetime sales of BLOPS:Declassified for Vita. 3 Months of sig control is at stake.
Stop blaming executives, ‘the times’, and everything else. We know who is causing the destruction of gaming. The hardcore must be destroyed!" - Sean Malstrom
Nintendo said that the cost of adding the second gamepad was having the fps dropped by half and while Mario Kart isn't very graphics intensive that's still a lot of pixels.
Unless they find a way to avoid that performance hit and run the game at 30fps for all the 6 players then they will go with only 5.
Please excuse my bad English.
