Fucking holy shit Link calm down its just Mario Kart

If I was in Mario Kart I'd be pretty fucking excited too.

Do you think he honestly understands the mechanics of something... mechanical? Like, he's done nothing but ride horses. Now he has a metal one and it goes much faster. He's probably going to enjoy the shit out of it.

He had a train in Spirit Tracks.

Let him be hyped at the fast mechanical horse.

I want Link with a normal sized head and a look of determination on his face like he's not interested in anything but first place.

>>271095531
I know that's the rationalization for it, but it doesn't fly with me. He's a fucking one-dimensional hero who never gives a shit about anything but winning once he is wearing that tunic. He should be determined to win the race, not loling.

>>271095641
The track is ok at best in theme. Can't say about the layout obviously. Enough with overworld theme. Give us a medley or something I dunno.

>>271095797
I'm ok with a horse-bike, but I don't think they needed to slap Hylian shields all over it to remind you that it's Zelda themed. They could've come up with something better than that I hope.

>yfw the ass would be fatter on a bike than Peach's, Daisy's, and Rosalina's asses combined

He's smiling cause the world isn't in danger of falling into ganon's hands.
He's smiling cause he doesn't have to rescue some bimbo that won't give him any for all the hard work he did in the first place that lets her be in a position to say no.

Basically, for a change, Link just gets to have fun racing instead of worry about if he is going to die or not in the next dungeon.
Its nice to see how Link is on his off time.
>>
>>271096264
Why is his head retardedly big? Because he's on vacation?
>>
>>271093496
Hey man, after all the shit he goes through he deserves to have some fun

He also operated an advanced helicopter thingy robot and rollercoaster, and also beat up a robot pirateman. I think he knows his way around mechanics.

>>271096421
Well, whatever. Thematically the track is another boring Hyrule field. I understand that it's iconic, but a big grassy field with a castle just isn't interesting. F-Zero, Excitebike, that dragon stage all look more visually appealing.

>>271096697
I won't be butthurt for long, but in the mean time I'm just not going to rationalize it with stupid excuses

You gotta realize that, at some point when you're doing an homage to Zelda, you're gonna have to put in an overowlrd or a field of some sort, right?

>>
Baby Link and Metal Link when?
>>
>>271097262
I know, but with Nintendo's recent emphasis on throwing Zelda into everything, that's always what they use, because of that very reason.

It's the most iconic thing, but it's getting boring and old. Sonic Lost World DLC was Hyrule Field with rupees instead of rings and Overworld rock. Hyrule Warriors was shown off with the field and the rock. Now we get Hyrule Field and the Overworld theme and rupees in MK8.

I realize it might be asking too much of a track, but for it to not be boring they should have it move through Zora's Domain and Death Mountain and other areas too. I understand why they might not do something like that, but that's just why it's so boring now.

And seriously, what is with the two Hylian Shields on the bike? That's Pimp My Ride tier.
>>
>>271097574
Seriously though, if they were just going to have another Mario and Peach why not include Toon Link and ALBW Link as different weight classes?
>>
>>271097702
I think they use it so much because it's so entry level. You can show off a portion of the field and a dungeonesque area, like in the case of Lost World's DLC, and call it a day. You've shown two of the most iconic parts about Zelda and hope that they'll get curious enough to get a Zelda game and explore more about the series.

>>
>>271098275
I know.

It works well as an advertisement for Zelda, but for people who are already aware of Zelda and Nintendo games it's starting to become oversaturated.

I know Nintendo has stepped up their efforts to get their different IP into all kinds of other games: Rayman, Tekken, Musou, Monster Hunter, Sonic, (I'm probably forgetting like 50 more), and they're cross-polinating with their own series like in Mario Kart. But it's just becoming homogenous and too much.

I'm so sick of seeing Hyrule Field and hearing that music and I'm sick of seeing everything wearing Mario and Luigi overalls too.

I guess Nintendo makes more money off of new fans then they do off of old ones and aren't worried about annoying guys like me.
>>
There is something I am much more excited about.

>The return of SNES Rainbow Road
>Could mean the return of the original Rainbow Road song.
>Which could even mean a possible REMIX of the original Rainbow Road song.

I really enjoy that song. Even have it as my ringtone. Here's to hoping it gets a remix.
>>

It's already confirmed to have a remix

>>271098781
Ah well, to each their own. I think that if they don't take the moment tp branch out using their most popular brands, they'll never reach the opportunity to do the same for their lesser popular brands.
>>
>>271099382
I agree with you. I bought the DLC. I still think they could've designed it better.
>>
>>271098385
What?
>>
>>271094897
I dunno about that. Being with Skyward Sword Zelda sounds pretty fun if you ask me.
>>
>>271099834
In the first DLC pack, they threw in Tanooki Mario and Cat Peach instead of more practical racers like Zelda and Captain Falcon.
>>
>>271100537
If you're counting all the Links and Zeldas as a whole he's spent time with pirates, ninjas, and ghosts.

Who the fuck cares about some pampered housewife type?
>>
>>271100942
Well I'm specifically talking about the Skyward Sword universe since this Link looks like he's based off of that one.

If you're talking about SS Link specifically then this is by far the most fun he's ever had, period.
>>
>>271093496
But can you imagine how crazy that shit is for him? Fastest he's ever been was gallop on horseback, now he's going over 200 mp/h upside-down on an anti-gravity bicycle. Shit must be mindblowing for him.

Dont count on ever racing them online unless they allow an option for dlc owner only tournaments
>>
>>271098781
I personally it should have 4 Zelda-themed tracks in the Hyrule Cup.

That way, Nintendo can shoehorn the obligatory Hyrule Field/Castle and the overworld theme, then they can get creative. Skyloft would have been an obvious one, but what about the other two, especially that last track? Maybe something on Outset Island, with that bitchin' KoRL bike some anon posted above? I can't think of th other two should be.

>>271103312
So just ONE guy not having the tracks makes it to where nobody gets the chance to race on the tracks. That sucks, and Mario Kart 8 is one of the few Nintendo games that actually has decent online. Fucking hell Nintendo. They should just have them as a choice regardless while online. The benefit with the DLC should be getting the extra cups.

No, it's just a hylian shield on each side.
>>
>>271102761
Probably what will happen is that you can play the tracks if they're picked by people who have the dlc, however, you can't vote for them yourself, so you might get stuck voting random if all the tracks up for vote are dlc.

They have to patch the fucking game anyway to include the models, code and shit for the new carts/characters, so that is most likely, however, there might be seperate mp queues for dlc owners and people who don't have the dlc. That would be kind of stupid, because you're splitting the playerbase in half.

I don't know why nintendo hasn't said anything about this.

don´t listen to him

- when you hop online, you'll have the option to either go play the original 32 courses or with all 40 courses
- when you create a tournament, you can select 32 or 40 courses
- you can also select to only play the DLC levels
- everyone has to have the DLC if they want to join your tournament
- you will never come across a situation where someone will get kicked out of a lobby because they don’t have the new content
- those with the DLC will never have any disruption to their experience because other people didn’t get the new courses.
