Yeah, you people must be thinking I've gone crazy. But still, hear me out for a second...
So, after getting MarioKart8-Deluxe last year, it has by far become my favourite MarioKart yet, and also one of my favourite racing games of all time.
However there is one fatal flaw that always irks me.....that god awful roster of characters.
Right out of the gate, out of that 42-man roster, 12 of those offer notihing of substance and are just clones of each other. Fuck the koopas. Sometimes and seems the spotlight is on them, because majority of the spots in a race are taken up by them. Get rid of those stupid baby designs as well. Get rid of all that useless filler. I would go on to say the roster would be BETTER without them, even if we're left with less characters. Heck even Metal Mario/metal peach along with tanooki mario/cat peach as well. If anything, they should be skins for the normal characters, and not their own characters. That really leaves like what, 20 signifiant mario characters that should be in there? And even then its still debatable if dry bowser should be its own thing.
Since the MarioKart brand is known universally, keep that name, and have a two/thirds of the focus on Mario characters. One of things I liked about the game were the dlc characters from different franchises. Have a bigger focus on that, like about a third. Bring in characters like Fox and Wolf, king dedede, tom nook, diddy/dixie kong, and whatever else can fit into mariokart, and also have courses set in their universes. To add a bit of personality, add a special meter, that slowly increases if you perform well, and when it fills up you can perform a special unique to that character.
And there should also be DLC for third party characters, just like Smash has.
What do you guys think?
Bet with Intrinsic:
The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
