12 racers again?

Do you think they will do the 12-player thing again or revert back to just 8? User:DK Fan

Nobody knows, we don't have enough info yet, so don't speculate about that by now...

¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

I think since that only a maximum of two characters have been seen in one screenshot, it may be possible to choose the amount of characters to verse, a bit like in the Super Smash Bros. games. Mario's Cap.pngSKmarioman SKmarioman refined.png

Maybe they will revert it back to 8 since its back on a handheld. -Rosalina1234

The two racing is probably just VS mode. They'll have more racers on the track at a time. The question is, who?Magikrazy51 (talk)

Guys, didn't you see the "Gameplay" section on the actual Mario Kart 7 page? It says right there that it will bring back the traditional "eight-racers-at-a-time" thing. Just reminding you. Mario Superstar 36 (talk)

First they got eight in the first five games, then twelve in the last game, and now, it goes down to eight again! How about that! All games have 8 at a time, while in Mario Kart Wii, there were twelve so, with the return of eight at a time, I think I'm going to like it! Reddragon19k 17:24, 14 September 2011 (EDT)

I get it. It just reverted back to 8. --Plankton5165 22:28, 21 October 2011 (EDT)

Any Facts?

Do any of you have any facts about mk3ds? -Rosalina 1234

A few, but this isn't the correct place to talk about it. You can talk on the forums or visit me at my talk page. MSS Pianta Artwork.png Bowser's lumaParatroopa NSMB artwork.png

Strictly speaking Bowser's Luma, this might belong on this page because the facts could go on the page. And to answer your question, Rosalina 1234, everything we currently know about MK3DS is(hopefully) already on the page.--=D Smileymiley5001 =D 13:38, 8 March 2011 (EST)

Umm... Theres 1 Gcn Course to Be confirmed. but the lightning would have 2 GCN Tracks.-mariokart7

will this game also put n64 royal raceway for the lightning cup

Well It Would be cool but woul'nt you prefer GCN Bowser Castle? anyway who knows until its confirmed-mariokart7

Confirmed Characters

User:FireFlower- Check out my user page everyone.

Again, no. First of all, don't merge this with "Any Facts?". Secondly, this is advertising for your own userpage. Third, this is not related to the improvement of our coverage. Please don't do this again. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 16:42, 2 January 2011 (EST)

Hey I am only sharing my opinion- User:FireFlower

Mr Concrete Donkey is right. Superfiremario (talk)


In the new vid, you can see Grand Goombas. Were should we put this?--Holyromanemperortatan 21:17, 10 January 2011 (EST)

You cannot add videos to the regular pages. However, you can still put the screenshot of the video on the Mario Kart 3DS page if you want. Just put the video in your userpage. MP8 DryBones.pngHappy Halloween! Bone Goomba.png
I know embed vids cannot go on articles. I was tlking about the info.--Holyromanemperortatan 17:08, 7 February 2011 (EST)

Dixie Kong?

Who got the idea of Dixie Kong in Mario Kart 3DS? Mirai Moon

I just removed it because of the template. If anybody has some actual sources that say that Dixie Kong will be in this game, feel free to readd it to the article. Tadaa!2.gifSupremoTadaaa!.gif 17:41, 18 February 2011 (EST)

Grand Goomba

Yeah, I found Grand Goombas in a trailer, here's a picture. (See: here) The trailer can also be found here. Mirai Moon

Names

Do we officially know the names of the tracks? --YoshiMP8Artwork.pngYoshiGo99YoshiNSMBW.png 18:32, 23 February 2011 (EST)

No. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 18:38, 23 February 2011 (EST)

Apparently the title right now for this game is Mario Kart 3D, I found it here, on the Nintendo 3DS website! Mirai Moon

Peach appearing?

On this page here, it says Peach will be returning. You think that is true? DK Fan

It doesn't mean that. The writer is explaining the Mario Kart series in general and counting Mario Luigi and Peach as example of the drivers in the games. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

Oops, cause I just added her, I'll undo that. User:DK Fan

Wuhu Island

After playing Wii Sports Resort so many times, I have a pretty good idea what the track layout in Mario Kart 3DS might be. Plus, Wuhu Island's shape is based off Isle Delfino, so do you think I can create an article for Wuhu Island? Mario's Cap.pngSKmarioman SKmarioman refined.png

Hmmmmmm....maybe we should wait until the game comes out until we make a page for Wuhu Island.It does sound like a good idea though.--=D Smileymiley5001 =D 14:34, 10 March 2011 (EST)

I suppose we can just wait until June for E3. Mario's Cap.pngSKmarioman SKmarioman refined.png

Yeah, we should just wait. Glitchy Missingno.jpeg SuperfiremarioGlitchy Missingno.jpeg

O_o I didn't see Whu Hu Island at ALL in the E3 trailer. Well, there wasn't much courses in the trailer anyway, so I'm pretty sure we should wait until the game is actually released until we make pages about any of the new courses. Mario's Cap.pngSKmarioman SKmarioman refined.png

Which ones the 1 lap course wuhu 1 or wuhu 2?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by MarioKart7 (talk).

Both, they have 4 different lap banners to make it seem like there are 3 laps, but it is just a huge course. Same with rainbow road.

I contacted Nintendo and...

I contacted Nintendo about Mario Kart for the 3DS and Nintendo of America, Barbara Soules said this.

Hi,


Thanks for contacting us about Mario Kart for the Nintendo 3DS. At this time the only information we have released about games that will be available for the Nintendo 3DS is on our Nintendo 3DS-dedicated website (http://www.nintendo.com/3ds).


However, if the game is being published by one of our licensee partners, you may find information about it at the publisher’s website. If you happen to know who the publisher is, go to the following web address and click on the company name to get contact information:


http://www.nintendo.com/corp/licensees_third.jsp


I’m confident that more specific details about this game will eventually be made available. In the meantime, please continue to check our website regularly. Thank you for your patience.


Sincerely,


Barbara Soules Nintendo of America Inc.

Mario Kart 3DS: official name?

I went to GameStop to pick up my Nintendo 3DS. The guy at the counter gave me a piece of paper with pictures of games they were allowing preorder for. One of the pictures was this game, and, written in creative font over the picture, said "Mario Kart 3DS". Is this official enough to move the article? A Link to the Present 16:47, 7 April 2011 (EDT)

I'm not sure, but it's all we've got to go by. We probably won't know if the name is official (or if there is another name) until E3. Mario4Ever (talk)

Possible American Release Date

When I was at GameStop the day before the 3DS was released, I saw a list of upcoming games for each system. Under the DS category, it said "Mario Kart 3DS [...] 8/2/2011" (August 2, 2011). Same for Paper Mario 3DS...I'm not sure if the date are official, though. aaaaaaaa Mariomario64! 15:09, 9 April 2011 (EDT)

I'm not sure about the exact date or Paper Mario, but when I went (as expressed in above), they said that Paper Mario is not available for preorder yet, and that Mario Kart was available at an unknown time in August. A Link to the Present 15:11, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Sorry, but sellers such as GameStop and Best Buy have often unreliable information regarding release dates. Wait until Nintendo officially announces it rather than rely on the stockers. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
I agree. I just checked IGN, and they don't have one, since they don't announce it until Nintendo does. Mario4Ever 15:17, 9 April 2011 (EDT)
Besides, we should use logic. We still have virtually no information on this game, so it is logical that a release date won't be announced yet. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
That, too. Mario4Ever
...um...ok. aaaaaaaa Mariomario64! 20:33, 9 April 2011 (EDT)

Swoopers

Are they confirmed... i mean is there a screen shoot of them Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

Just because there is a screenshot doesn't mean they're confirmed...as stated above, we don't know a lot about this game and we should just wait until more info comes up, like at E3 or something. aaaaaaaa Mariomario64! 15:55, 18 April 2011 (EDT)
I added that after seeing in one of the links "Speaking of which, the bats are back!". So I said "Well, when in Kero Sewers" and added it. Then, Lindsey151 told me I cited incorrectly. Crapfully yours, The Magikrazy Magikrazy.png

can someone put the image of MK3DS i uploaded on this page for me please? thanks! Mario hammer.gifCalapso Koopa 12.gif - It's a me, Mario! - Mario.gif

This one? It's pretty poor quality, though. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
it has just as much quality as the blooper picture Mario hammer.gifCalapso Koopa 12.gif - It's a me, Mario! - Mario.gif
But the Blooper one has higher resolution. I can barely see the details on that picture. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
Don't worry about it. Maybe you will find a better resolution picture some day :) BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)


I had to get the Blooper image from the trailer so it dosen't have much quality. Please don't delete it.--Yoshi - Mario Party 10.pngYoshidude99 03:22, 3 May 2011 (EDT)

"New Elements"

it was just announced that Hideki Konno is focusing his time and energy on Mario Kart 3DS. He’s not spilling the beans just yet, but says that Nintendo really wants to “bring a bunch of new elements into the game.” [1] Mario hammer.gifCalapso Koopa 12.gif - It's a me, Mario! - Mario.gif

Gee, maybe they will have a story this time like in Diddy Kong Racing. DK Fan
Good, I will add that to the article. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
One the "new elements" may be Peppy telling you "Do a abrrel roll!" and you'll be able to do a barrel roll. Now I'll be more serious; the "new elements" may be elements from other Mario games besides the Mario Kart series or entirely concepts that have never been used before in any Mario game.--Holyromanemperortatan 17:22, 17 May 2011 (EDT)
Um, we have the forums for a reason you know. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
The problem is, no one knows how to get on it!!! DK Fan

Bianco Hills? (speculation :P)

In the Youtube trailer I saw a level with windmills. It could be a modern version of Bianco Hills, but that's just my speculation.--Holyromanemperortatan 13:26, 7 June 2011 (EDT)

2 laps?

I have a great big question if you go to this video Mario Kart 3D Nintendo 3DS gameplay video and go to the part where they are racing underwater look down towards the bottom, it shows part of the bottom screen and the right corner says 1/2 laps. Is there 2 laps for everyplace or 2 for that one?NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png

We don't have enough info to know yet.--Holyromanemperortatan 07:33, 8 June 2011 (EDT)
There are only 2 laps because of the demo allowing time for other people to play the game. --Mechawave 18:34, 10 June 2011 (EDT)
Well one course I saw had 3 laps while another one had to. Could it be that the course with 2 laps is longer than the others?NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png
Only the demo has two laps in each course, ~ Qyzxf (talk)

The background is World 1 NSMBW! --Glitchy Missingno.jpeg SuperfiremarioGlitchy Missingno.jpeg 20:05, 23 June 2011 (EDT)

Only 8 racers

The article says that there will only be 8 racers per race. Is this confirmed? I don't remember seeing that anywhere, and there are no sources. YoshiwakerTyranitar.png

In one of the links there is a video and you can see on the screen it says 8th and when the race started there were 2 rows with 4 racers in both.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png
Yes, there are only 8 racers. I'm pretty sure there would've been 12 but the 3DS is quite small (both physically and technically) so it would probably be an eyesore. 12 racers must be unique only to future console versions of Mario Kart. --Mechawave 18:37, 10 June 2011 (EDT)

Music Discovered!

Some music can be heard here, there's a Wii Sports Resort remix for Wuhu Island and a new song for a new course. Judging by some sound effects in the video, it sounds like you will be able to do tricks again. Mirai Moon

Developer

The developer of this game is Nintendo EAD, not generally "Nintendo." All the other Mario Kart games have been developed by them. --Mechawave 18:40, 10 June 2011 (EDT)

Yeah, but it's not confirmed that Nintendo EAD will be making this, as Nintendo could get a new team to make it, and therefore should not be changed. Mirai Moon

2 returning characters and a newcomer?

Judging from what I know about who would've been included in Mario Kart Wii, I speculate that the three beta characters will be included. Mirai Moon

Hm, it's possible. DK Fan

Change the source of the spiny shell link to [2]
The preceding unsigned comment was added by LOLOLOL (talk).

Please, speculation like this doesn't belong here; it belongs in the forums. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Mii?

When was it confirmed that the Miis were playable? Y0SHI3gg 14:43, 3 July 2011 (EDT)

See the source:

People can choose to race as one of their favorite Mushroom Kingdom characters or even as their Mii™ character.

Mario Kart 7?

I just noticed that the name of this article was changed to "Mario Kart 7", from "Mario Kart 3DS". Are there any sources that support this change?
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Toad85 (talk).

Yes: [3]. However, I don't think that is the final name. The seven was probably added just to show that it is the seventh game in the series, and not just any Mario Kart. Fawfulfury65
I also agree with Fawfulfury65 it is probably just there for the cover name because seriously there are more then seven mario kart games including the two arcade games or maybe it counts the main series. User:Jjrapper100
It's official.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Puffteam (talk).

Release Date

In Holland, I was in a shop. There was a flyer on the wall saying: Mario Kart 7: To be released November 2011. I don't know if we should add it to the page. Does anybody know?
--Zaimoon

If their source is official, sure, but if not, then no. Mario4Ever

OK, If I have time, perhaps I can return to the shop and ask where they got the information. I'll let you guys know if I find something, OK?
--Zaimoon

It is official! It will come out on December 1, 2, and 4 respectively. Check the article page and see it! Reddragon19k 18:45, 15 September 2011 (EDT)

The trailer

Did anyone else see Koopa Cape and Yoshi Valley in the trailer? Or hear a familiar voice after Yoshi got hit? The Magikrazy Magikrazy.png

No I can't say I did and I watched teh trailer over 15 times. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png
Well, I just saw a commercial for the 3DS, with Ocarina of Time 3D, Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7. It appeared that Royal Raceway and/or Sherbet Land (MKDD!! version) or a similar course will be in the game. Mirai Moon

official page

I'm new here and don't really have time to edit but I noticed there is an offical page for the game out here it seems to have a bit of new info and further confirms the december release date, there's also a video that seems to show more that we've seen so far Reddo 23:36, 22 August 2011 (EDT)

Yes, it does seem to confirm a mountain course, a city course, and a never-before-mentioned desert course. Unfortunately, the video is almost exactly the same as the E3 trailer, the only difference being at the very end where it says Mario Kart 7 instead of Mario Kart. MarioComix 01:20, 23 August 2011 (EDT)

New Logo!

Characters

I talked to a employee at gamestop and he said that their will be a total of 24 characters. He said the characters will be similar to the Mario Kart Wii Roster just slightly different. FireFlower 18:33, 7 September 2011 (EDT)--FireFlower 18:33, 7 September 2011 (EDT)

  • Hm, that could work, but I heard a source saying there will be 20. User:DK Fan

Bowser's Castle

In the New Courses list I saw "Unnamed futuristic course", does that mean that course with Bowser's emblem on some boards above the course (maybe Bowser's Castle)? Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 10:56, 13 September 2011 (EDT)

Metal Mario

Is true that Metal Mario will be a Playable Character? What I'v seen in the screenshots is a Metal Mario driving a metal kart. That should be considered possibly a Power-up as the kart is also metal (compare how the kart looks when using also to the Star or Boo, the also change in appearance). ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png

From what I've gathered, Metal Mario is a separate entity in this game. It's not that unheard of, since it has happened before. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 12:36, 13 September 2011 (EDT)

He's definitely a playable character. Go to the link and click the second video. It's the developer interview translated. He mentions Metal Mario. http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/59JiheYMlzjHqlmUHkP5ESn3QOUHqyOq User:ChewbecaXD

Thunder Cloud

Why is this still listed under returning items? It's been like that for ages. Also, it wasn't seen in any gameplay at the Nintendo conference so shouldn't it just be removed unless it's confirmed. I don't think it's likely though. The item cycle didn't show it once and I don't think they would hide a returning item. User:ChewbecaXD

Well looks like someone has fixed it within the past hour. Never mind. User:ChewbecaXD

Lakitu for the first time as a playable character?

I just saw a red shelled Lakitu that is in the game along with the green shelled version. What's the difference Reddragon19k

One is the referee (green), the other is the racer (red). RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 16:54, 13 September 2011 (EDT)
Oh, I see. Thanks for the difference! I'll see them when the game comes out on December 4th! Reddragon19k

Rosalina reference?

Does anyone have any references to having Rosalina in the game? I saw Wario in a picture, but I haven't heard anything of Rosalina. Another thing, I heard from an EB Games employee that King Boo is going to appear in the game, however, I wouldn't put it on the page, I just wanted to share my intel. Mirai Moon

Look at the new trailer.--UM3000 E-102 Gamma.png

Petey Piranha's Apperence

Just asking for a basic perspective, does any belive that Petey Piranha will be appering in Mario Kart 7? FireFlower 17:19, 14 September 2011 (EDT)--FireFlower 17:19, 14 September 2011 (EDT)

Save this for the Forums Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)
If, you have a forum account (except, I don't have one...and I can't). Have or have not, you still can't have forum talk.--Prince Ludwig 19:19, 14 September 2011 (EDT)

King boo returning and ordinary boo as a newcomer?

Not sure if this belongs on the forum or not I'm new(as a member anyway) and I dont like forums anyway

Since boo hasn't been confirmed to return as a item could this mean king boo is returning? And possibly an ordinary boo may become a newcomer?


donaldthescotishtwin (talk)

This is for the Forums, but King Boo might be in it due to Rosalina.NSMBU Fuzzy Artwork.pngYoshiGo99Yoshi Egg Tilted Artwork.png


First-Person Mode for the first time?

I do know that there will be a first-person mode in this game but, we still don't have information yet. Do we need more info about this new view? Reddragon19k

Dry Dry Outpost

Past Mario Kart games have had Dry Dry Desert and Dry Dry Ruins. The buildings in the bazaar course look similar to the ones from Dry Dry Outpost. I bet the the nighttime bazaar course is Dry Dry Outpost.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by IGGY7735 (talk).

First, in my opinion, it looks nothing like Dry Dry Outpost. Second, the first two courses you mentioned are not affiliated with the Paper Mario versions in any way. Finally, save this speculation for the forums. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Release date unofficial

It says here [[5]] the release date for Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land is unofficial. Should we remove the said release dates from the articles? YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Yeah. The time frame's probably right, though (they'll both come out before the year ends). Mario4Ever

Why is this protected? The writing is atrocious. I registered to fix the bastardized English and meandering, barely coherent sentences, but it's protected? Some guy 05:45, 2 October 2011 (EDT)

Tanooky Tail, Shy Guy and other courses

The Super Leaf makes a tanooki tail appear behind the kart and will serve to bowl other karts over and destroy some items. Shy Guy appears to be aplayable character and looks like Luigi Raceaway from MK64 and a SNES Mario circuit (number unknonw by the moment) will appear in the game too. ¢oincollctor rsitem209.png


Then upload the screenshots Donaldthescotishtwin


I'd like but the pics I've found have watermark of their source.

Playable Characters

Is there any sources vailidating that there will be a certain amount of characters. If a source does exsist, how many charaters will there be to give us an idea of what might happen?User:FireFlower


Mention

Is the fact that this game is the only one in the series to have retro courses from over 4 different games noteworhy. It has courses from the SNES, N64, GBA, DS and Wii. If it is noteworthy, can I add it to the trivia? User:MarioMaster720

But Mario Kart Wii had retro courses from SNES, N64, GBA, GCN, and DS. Besides, all later games would have more than 4 as well. MarioComix 21:27, 18 October 2011 (EDT)

facepalm! I didn't notice... User:MarioMaster720

Well now that the game has GCN courses too should it be mentioned now??? it has courses from 6 different games! User:MarioMaster720

REPLY PLEASE! :) User:MarioMaster720

Kart parts

Should we add the kart parts to the article? It says on the 23rd reference some of the names of the kart bodies and wheels. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Drivers

There are 16 drivers. 13 Returning and 4 new. 13+4=17. But it says there are 16 drivers! I don't understand. Red-CyanToad

That's listing all excluding Mii. Why it doesn't include it, I don't know. KoopaKiller13 08:50, 22 October 2011 (EDT)

You have the sources for the 4 new drivers. But have you got the ones for the 16 playable characters ? Because I think it's obvious that Waluigi will be in the game: he appears in all the MK since MKDD!! and more, Waluigi Pinball is one of the races. --Fire-Luigi 14:34, 22 October 2011 (EDT)

The source for the 4 new drivers, on the Japanese website, also happens to show a list of all returning characters, with no empty slots. MarioComix 14:39, 22 October 2011 (EDT)

Still, the game is not even released yet. Keep in mind that in the Japanese website for Mario Kart Wii, none of the unlockable characters are shown. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Someone answer this, because I don't want any inconveniences. Should I add a "Rumored Characters" section?KoopaKiller13 16:55, 7 November 2011 (EST)

No, this wiki is for confirmed information rather than speculation. MarioComix 21:00, 7 November 2011 (EST)

Shy Guy

M&SG said that on forum discussions, Shy Guy may be a download play exclusive, but hasn't there been more proof of him beeing an actual character? I don't think we should say he is a download exclusive until we know more. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Well, isn't that the point of the forum discussions? For speculation? As long as it's not on the main article, speculation on the forums should be fine, I think. MarioComix 23:55, 24 October 2011 (EDT)

I merely got the info from YamiHoshi.nl; [6]. Unfortunately, I can't understand Japanese. RedYoshiMK7Signature.png M&SG (talk) 21:21, 25 October 2011 (EDT)

Hi! I'm new here. I'm from MySims Wiki and Nookipedia. By any chance, where does it confirm Coconut Mall being in MK7? Just curious --Wii maniac 15:28, 25 October 2011 (EDT)

Yup, as well as Koopa Cape, Maple Treeway and Mushroom Gorge
The preceding unsigned comment was added by IGGY7735 (talk).

This article, and many others...

... need to include more generic information rather than just gameplay. The same issue is present on the article Mario Kart Wii. The articles are not balanced well. --Bryce Wilson | talk 04:18, 26 October 2011 (EDT)

I'll post a message on your talk page about this, B.wilson; I think I know where you're trying to get at. It's just that we're trying our best to make sure our pages here aren't like Wikipedia (but still making sure important information stays on articles, especially game articles). --M.

Queen bee and Wiggler?

On the forum, rumour has it that Queen Bee and Wiggler are newcomers, both, but especially Queen bee seem pretty far fetched, has anyone got any reliable sources to justify it, or is it just a rumour. 123.png Lily 08:11, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

There's a reference link to a screenshots from Nintendo Power of both in the game,so yes they are newcomers,Wiggler is not a bad choice she's been in the Mario series since pretty much the beginning,but chosing Queen Bee is a mystery to me such a underdeveloped character,Boo would've been a better choice(I know King Boo has been in the series since Double dash) but having a normal Boo would be better,but as users have said unlockable characters are never shown so who knows what other Characters Nintendo have added. Donaldthescotishtwin

This Mario Kart is the most absurd since Super Mario Kart :|

Metal Mario and "Honey Queen" as unlockable characters, and no Waluigi. WHY ?

And, according to the official site, the game isn't going to have others characters, like Waluigi, Bowser Jr. or Dry Bones. --Fire-Luigi 08:29, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

Yeah, true, even though Im not really convinced as its not on the website and I was expecting some more... Major SMG characters(Luma or Lubba) 123.png Lily 08:32, 30 October 2011 (EDT)

The first comment was, I assume, concerned with making sure the article is correct. This is getting off-topic currently, so since you obviously have a forums account, I recommend you move back there since this is just talk about the new characters in the game. Bop1996 (Talk)

Ok, Im sorry, its just its not on the website so Im not 100% convinced 123.png Lily

Maybe you didn't read my comment? obviously there will be more returning characters,unlockable is the best bet. Donaldthescotishtwin

Maybe you didn't read my comment? This is forums talk, and should be moved there. Bop1996 (Talk)

Whether this belongs to the forums or not, I don't care, but I don't think it's the characters that matter. What you guys should be thinking is the game itself. I'm just sayin', so don't tell me anything.KoopaKiller13 16:47, 7 November 2011 (EST)

Bee

The Super Mario 3D Land Bees? Sure? Where?

10:45, 30 October 2011 (EDT)


Honey Queen?

Why do we list Queen Bee as "Honey Queen". It's probably her japanese name, but even if it is, It's Queen Bee and if the character has an official english name, that's the name we use, right. Or did Nintendo change her Japanese name and this is some other Queen Bee. (Like King Boo from SMS). Sorry for possible bad spelling and I NEED A REPLY FAST! Most of my questions on talk pages haven't been responded too.... NOTE: I Know that the source calls her "Honey Queen", but that was a Japanese Source I think? User:MarioMaster720

It wasn't a Japenese souece. The most we know right now is that she is called Honey Queen in the American Nintendo Power magazine. Please stop editing the name into Queen Bee. ~ Qyzxf (talk)

I'm not editing it! I was just wondering because the name changes from Queen Bee to Honey Queen all the time. User:MarioMaster720

I didn't mean it to you, but to everyone. In the official source, she is called Honey Queen, so that sould be it untill the game's release or when it's changed to Queen Bee officially. (Sorry if I sound rude in my comments) ~ Qyzxf (talk)

Still more Characters to come?

[7] Nintendo Power also hints that there are more secret characters yet to be revealed, too. Who else do you think will be making their playable Kart debut this December?

[http://www.platformnation.com/2011/10/30/mario-kart-7-new-characters-revealed/ The newest edition of Nintendo Power magazine is shedding light on that mystery by revealing a few new playable characters for the fans, while keeping the promise that there will be many other unlockable characters that will remain secret until the game’s release date on December 4th.]

We could probably add that as a source for having "many" unlockable racers....maybe. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Dutch Translation

About a month ago, a Nintendo news article reported something unique for the Mario Series. Mario Kart 7 (along with Super Mario 3D Land) will be translated to Dutch. The only Mario game ever to be translated to Dutch before was Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games, a crossover game. Because of this, Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 will be the first mainstream Mario-titles to be translated to Dutch. Here is Nintendo's official confirmation (the article is in Dutch). I thought it would be handy if I shared the info with you.
60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

If this wiki were able to accept general info like this, then it would be okay to place that in as noteworthy trivia. I do however think this is noteworthy stuff for another Nintendo-related Wiki, though. --M. C. - "Mario Gals" Fan! User Page | Talk Page 17:49, 30 October 2011 (EDT)
At least this information makes it possible to add more Dutch translations to the "Names in Other Languages" sections of articles.
60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)

Nintendo eShop channel confirmed Portuguese and Russian are also available languages. This is completely new for the Mario series.

Could R.O.B be in the game ?

I've found, on this image, something strange: 2666372486085_mk7_complete.png

Who is the character, at the background ? It can't be Lakitu or Metal Mario. We also can forget Bowser, DK, Wario, Shy Guy and Honey Queen, these characters are too fat. It doesn't looks like to Mario, Luigi, Yoshi or Koopa. And Peach, Daisy and Rosalina aren't giraffes ... It can be Toad, but strangely, this character seem to have dark colors, although he is at sun.

This T form really looks like to R.O.B. And the kart is like the one from Mario Kart DS. Fire-Luigi 06:19, 31 October 2011 (EDT)

Interesting. However, the light and shadows on the character are very strange and it's hard to tell what is is. I think it's too early to confirm it's R.O.B.
60px-ArendLogoTransparent.pngrend (talk) (edits)
Looks kinda like a Mii to me up close. But again, it's too early to speculate. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey 08:27, 31 October 2011 (EDT)

I think it's Rosalina.

19:16, 1 November 2011 (EDT)

Had a better look. In my eyes it looks like Daisy or Yoshi or Wario (I know they don't look like each other). By the way that's a coin before it. ~ Qyzxf (talk)

How did Donaldthescotishtwin obtain this image: (http://www.mariowiki.com/File:Mk7cartsprite.jpg)? Is there a site for them? Did he recreate it? Does someone have a dev 3DS that can take screenshots? Datkip 13:35, 31 October 2011 (EDT)

Like most 3DS icons, they're from the Japanese Website.

New Trailer

There is a new Mario Kart 7 trailer. Here is the link: http://www.zeldainformer.com/2011/10/mario-kart-7---new-trailer-information-roundup.html. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png

Waluigi is in the game !!

Yeah, look at this ! waluigi--2e5653b.png

It's really fuzzy, sorry. It's from this video: http://www.zeldainformer.com/2011/10/mario-kart-7---new-trailer-information-roundup.html at 1:11 :D Fire-Luigi 06:47, 2 November 2011 (EDT)

Next time don't take screenshots with camera. SWFlashSWFlash.svg

What the... Where is Waluigi! Just because Waluigi Pinball is a track doesn't mean that Waluigi is playable! User:MarioMaster720

He's referring the purple kart with purple glider you can't see it well,but I'm sure waluigi will be playable. Donaldthescotishtwin

I saw Waluigi In the Kart. So, this means he is playable.--Yoshidarkblue.jpgNew Super YoshiYoshired.png 14:29, 2 November 2011 (EDT)

The whole kart is violet and I think it becomes silver at soon as it lands. I think it's Metal Mario.

SWFlashSWFlash.svg

Hmmm.... possibly, I think we better wait for more evidence before we can say its definitely him... 123.png Lily

I think it's Wario or Honey Queen (or maybe Metal Mario). ~ Qyzxf (talk)

With regards to the Dutch translation for MK7

I agree with MeritC in that it isn't what we look for in trivia. However, I think it does need to be mentioned in the article somewhere, as Arend has pointed out its high notability in Nintendo's history. This being said, it might actually be good in the beginning paragraphs of the article, as it is among the general and notable information we stick there often. Anyone against this? Bop1996 (Talk)

Never mind. Bop1996 (Talk)

Waluigi Possibility

Hi! Im new here, sorry if i mess anything up posting in the discussion. If this needs to be moved please tell me and i will do so promptly. Im not sure if this would go in the forums, but i was watching the flower cup trailer and saw a purple mass near the end when Mario was flying off the ramp. I think that may be waluigi considering no one else in the game is a majority shade of purple. I took a prntscreen pic and added some other shots at the bottom for reference.

You didn't do anything wrong (aside from removing one curly brace up there, but I fixed it). We can't really tell from any photos so far if that is Waluigi or not, so it isn't in the article yet. Bop1996 (Talk)

...Wait, that DOES look like Waluigi... but it could be Honey queen as I think she might be purple too... 123.png Lily 09:50, 5 November 2011 (EDT)

It's still inconclusive and too hard to tell, so it shouldn't be in the article yet. Bop1996 (Talk)
It also looks like a purple DK. Mirai Moon
I think it's actually Honey Queen

The confirmed Roster?

A 'Voice list' has been revealed leaking characters, does anyone know if it confirms anything or if we should wait for more evidence before adding anything? 123.png Lily

Depends, do you have a link to the list, because some websites like imbd create list from speculation.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by M4R10 BR0S (talk). It was somthing on the forum, I think it was that site you mentioned, I will leave it until there is more evidence 123.png Lily

Maybe can you just give me the link? I'm curious... ~ Qyzxf (talk)
Heres the link: [8] Bowser Jr Artwork Super Mario Sunshine.pngbowser jrs number 1 fan
Cool, so if that is a true list, that means that Waluigi, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Daisy, Baby Peach, Diddy Kong and Toadette will appear. Mirai Moon

Dont know if this is true or not [9] --NJE 16:10, 6 November 2011 (EST)

I can confirm 100% that it's fake because Queen Bee and Mii aren't included. I commented on that stupid fake video ;) User:MarioMaster720

It also says there are 36 characters (12 characters x 3 categories) Mirai Moon
Unfortunately, we'll leave all of this as speculation. Since this is not official confirmation, we cannot add it to the article. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Yeah,its fake. Wiggler and Honey Queen have voice actors. yoshiyoshiyoshi (talk)

Parts Names

Should I redlink them or leave them as they are? I'm not sure if they need separate articles in the future, but I would like to know if I should red link them for now.

BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

I'm pretty sure the parts will get their own articles; statistics for each part will need to be delved into. I would red link them, but I'm sort of new here, so I can't really make that judgement. Datkip 12:42, 9 November 2011 (EST)
I suggest you leave them. We can wait until the game is released and then create articles for the parts. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png
But do you know why I suggest it? So people can create articles on the go. That's why we sometimes create redlink articles before the game is released. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)
That is a good point. YoshiHeadSSBU.png Tails777 Talk to me!SSBUStockIcon - Robin.png
Why not? Just redlink them. People start making pages for them. If they change names in the American/Europese release, simply move them. ~ Qyzxf (talk)

Leaf Cup + Star Cup

Where were the Leaf Cup and Star Cupconfirmed? ~ Qyzxf (talk)

Notice there is a "citation needed" tag? That means that the courses qualifies for deletion. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C)

Umm... Where's Wuhu Loop 2? It's not called "Maka Wuhu". I think that guy on the NintendoWorldReport called it the wrong thing... And also... Do you want to mention that (along with the Fake Item Box) the Boo item isn't an item anymore? User:YoshiKart7

Leave it as that until the game comes out, it may be true it may not.--Yoshidarkblue.jpgNew Super YoshiYoshired.png 12:21, 15 November 2011 (EST)

Then why is the image in the gallery called "Yosh on Wuhu Loop 2"? And also, if Wuhu Loop 1 appears in the Flower Cup then where does Wuhu Loop 2 come into the play? And thirdly... On the official Japanese Website, Wuhu Loop 2's gameplay clip calls it "Wuhu Island 2" if translated. I'm 100% positive it's Wuhu Loop 2... But I guess you do have a point. I can wait... :) User:YoshiKart7

Swoopers will appear + Question

This linkshows Swoopers at the pipe-cliff-like area. Also, should we put in the comments that this is the first game since Super Circuit to have numbered courses (Wuhu Loop 1 & 2)? Mirai Moon

We already know Swoopers appear, the course is called Rock Rock Mountain. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 05:39, 12 November 2011 (EST)
Oh, I don't pay much about the courses until the game is released, I mostly pay attention to the characters and enemies. Also, if you already knew Swoopers were going to appear, why weren't they on the page? Mirai Moon
They are on the page already. Lakituthequick.png Lakituthequick 07:02, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Mario Kart Channel

I heard about this on Iwata Asks. Should I add a section about it? KoopaKiller13 12:13, 12 November 2011 (EST)

Rocky Wrenches appear

I probably should have linked to the video or added a citation, but I added them to the enemy list because it seems they appear in Battle Course 1.

u_u;

Besides,Princess Daisy,Wario,Rosalina,Shy Guy,Mii,Lakitu, Metal Mario,Wiggler and Honey Queen, does anyone knows if there will be more unlockable characters in the game? I feel they're missing important characters as Waluigi, Birdo, Toadette and Diddy Kong. Birdo Itadaki Street DS artwork.jpgBirdobeautiesBirdoHoops.PNG

Use the forum for that. PikaSamus (talk)

It's unlikely that there will be more characters in Mario Kart 7, but nothing is confirmed, so it's best to leave it for now until we know for sure that there will be no more characters in the game. User:Username8CP User:Username8cp
