Blue Shell launch imminent! The latest of the Mario Kart and 3DS bigshots is here, and bursting through our screen. Gear up as we take a look at the simply named Mario Kart 7 and see if it’s any good!
In an interview conducted by Nintendo Power magazine, 3D producer Hideki Konno how Nintendo wishes to expand on this installment compared on previous entries in the series to make this a more refined experience for the player. “Now that Nintendogs + Cats is done, I’ve been able to spend more time and energy on Mario Kart development. We really want to bring a bunch of new elements into the game, and I’m really looking forward to the time that I can announce what those elements are. Perhaps we’ll be able to talk in more detail at this year’s E3 event.” Konno has previously made statements about how he wishes to rebalance the games power items to make it more fair for everyone (There goes my wish of a triple blue shell item) however other than a few sketchy pieces of information, not much is known about the game.
Oh yeah, you want to know old-school? I’ll show you young’ins OLD-SCHOOL. THIS IS ONE OF THE OLDEST, SCHOOLIEST, OLD-SCHOOLIEST THINGS YOU’LL EVER SEE HERE… after the cut, that is.
Tonight @ 8 pm cst we are hosting a Mario Kart stream for the entire community to get in on. There will be commentary from various members and some sweet prizes!
