I finally unlocked The Wiggler. I'm pretty sure it was a default kart in the Wii U version, but it took about 500 coins to get.

I have three golds stars on everything except 200cc. I'm halfwaythrough with 200cc though. By Monday I'll have three gold stars on all of 'em. Then I'll start the time trials. Hated them the first time on Wii U. Not looking forward to doing it again.

Also the highest-rated Mario Kart in 15 years.





Mario Kart 8
, which launched worldwide on April 28, is the fastest-selling Mario Kart game in franchise history with more than 459,000 combined packaged and digital sales in the U.S. on launch day alone, Nintendo announced.




The previous record holder for highest first-day sales in the franchise was Mario Kart Wii, which sold approximately 433,900 when it launched in 2008.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has an attach rate of 45 percent, meaning that nearly one in two Switch owners in the U.S. purchased a copy of the game the day it launched. More than 2.7 million Switch systems have been sold worldwide, according to Nintendo.


In addition to being the fastest-selling game in the series, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is also the highest-rated game in the series in 15 years, with its Metacritic score of 93 tying that of Mario Kart: Super Circuit for Game Boy Advance.

I still have the time trials to do, but I'm focusing on Zelda now. There's been so many times when I've been in first place and an enemy power up has come out of nowhere to make me finish in second or third place. It was annoying at times but I still managed to get all the gold stars.

What's everyone's dream Mario Kart roster? I think Diddy Kong, Wiggler, Birdo, and Kamek should make a return and replace some of the clone drivers (I'm looking at you Metal Mario, Dry Bowser, and Pink Gold Peach). Possibly more Nintendo characters as DLC... (*cough* Captain Falcon, Fox, and Samus. *cough*)

I'm glad you asked actually, I reckon they will have to add mayor Pauline to the next one. I would love it if they added Mario as a cheep cheep though. Love the 'stache!

I would also love more Pokemon. Actually Nintendo should just make a Pokemon go karting game!
