    Donkey kong
    Koopa troopa
    Wario
    Rosalina
    Shy Guy
    Mii
    Metal Mario
    Lakitu (red shell)
    Honey Queen
    Wiggler

    Items:
    Fire flower (fireballs)(Limited time and number)
    Super leaf (tanooki tail)(Limited time)
    Number 7 (gives the driver 7 items around them to be used once)
    Banana Peel
    Triple Bananas

    Also coins are returning and operate by once 50, 100 or 500 are collected a new kart part is unlocked and the driver loses coins if they are hit by an item also collecting 10 coins in one race allows the kart to reach top speed. Karts are customisable with different frames and wheels. There are gliding sections and underwater sections for use with the glider and propeller respectively. Drift is the same as in MKWii (So NO SNAKING).And tricks are returning and are activated by using the drift button on the ramp. Gyro controls are being included and the player can see in 1st person view i.e in the kart.

    Keep things nice and discuss.

    It looks exactly the same as the last one with slightly improved graphics.

    Mario Kart with console-level visuals on a handheld + stereoscopic 3D + silky smooth 60 FPS in both 2D and 3D + online = WHY DOES DECEMBER HAVE TO BE SO FAR AWAY.

    I thought about preoordering it, decided that beating Bowser with a Tanooki Tail was more tempting, and thus, am going to try and get 7 for Christmas.

    I just hope the online will be good.

    It's looking really good, and I'm not a fan of the portable Mario Karts. I like that they kept the same online system as MKWii and the drifting. The character list is already pretty good (maining Rosalina and Mii again, Metal Mario and Lakitu are nice additions.), and the courses look good (Maple Treeway and Kalimari Desert are returning!)

    breathe it in, i'm gonna shine. it's my moment, i'm going to fly.

    I won't vote until I have the game in my hands.

    Either way, I'm getting it. I need some good online multiplayer for my 3DS.

    Metal Mario should've been a power-up, not a character. :/

    Has anyone seen the 3d trailer on the 3ds eshop yet, it relly does look brilliant in actual 3d not 2d trailers plus the graphics and FR are really good

    Birdo? Really?

    So long as they bring back Funky Kong I'm set. Rosalina & Funky were me go-to karters in Wii (and Dry Bones). Ideally I'd like to see everyone from Wii return.

    Metal Mario, at least ,does have experience as a separate character. "Boss" in SSB, SSBM, a playable character in Golf and I think a few other sports games, etc. I'm oddly excited to play as him for whatever reason.

    I hope they bring back the Boo item. Steal another person's item and have temporary invisibilty, and inexistence (you can pass through people and be passed through[was unsure how else to word it])? Why did they get rid of it?
    I have claimed Joltik. Deal with it.

    You're getting streetpasses at a farmer's market. That's proof enough.

    For some reason I really like the name 'Mario Kart 7.'

    I swear, if they bring back that dang thunder cloud I'm gonna be ticked.

    This game looks awesome though, I can't wait to get it, and retro studios is developing it which makes it even better.

    Oh yeah I forgot retro is helping design some of the tracks.
    I wonder if we'll get a tiki racer. Or maybe the checkpoint pig?

    Retro isn't developing the game, merely contributing assets. Most likely for the lone DKCR track.

    They're probably assisting in other tracks, but the one liveblog I found didn't detail specifics.

    I just looked it up and it was said that retro developed tracks so they are doing more than just the DKCR track.

    This is definitely the best game coming out this year, if you ask me.
    I wonder how big the character roster will be?
    With the newcomers to the series, I think the roster will have to be pretty big, probably even bigger than Mario Kart Wii's.
    Waluigi, Bowser Jr., Diddy Kong, Toadette and Birdo are pretty much basic spin-off characters and should be added before characters like Metal Mario, so they are most likely playable. Then you still have characters like Dry Bones, King Boo, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi: popular characters that have been in two Mario Kart games before, of which I see at least one being playable. Then it's also confirmed there will be more newcomers to the series.
    I can't wait to get this game.

    This isn't actually confirmed.
    In fact, it's not even that likely, because in the demo, the coins do not increase speed. They'll probably be used to buy kart parts.

    I tried the demo at an event and I came 1st on all 3 demo courses The game may be easy for me but it's gonna be really fun. But December is 2 months away...At least Super Mario 3D Land and Sonic Generations will keep me distracted for a while.
