    I haven’t gotten up to the amount of VR (too much battle mode) needed for it yet but at pure random you can get Mirror and 200cc class races? That really sucks.

    • Hermione Granger

      Yeah, it really does. They should just let us choose.

  • Blanco8x8

    Mii facial expressions and Inkling Girl animations, fixed.

    Thank you, Nintendo!

    • Jeffrey Davis

      And for good reason. Someone didn’t catch onto the controversial side of the initial design, hence the fix.

    “Inkling Girl’s animation has been adjusted.”
    That’s a pity. It was so funny 🙁

    • Hidden Flare

      Oh I never heard, can I see the issues? Like a vid or image?

  • Bruno_Ostara

    I wished they improved the online. :s

  • Skarnet

    I want to race 200cc online all the time.. Not “less often”! Please Nintendo! At least bring back the custom option from MK8 WiiU..

    • Hermione Granger

      I’m begging you Nintendo… don’t give us the OPPOSITE of what we want.

    Thank god…MK8D is a broken, buggy, mess of a game and if this fixes even half of its many problems I’ll be happy.

    • Constantinos Lapiotis

      MK8D is a broken, buggy mess of a game? You are joking, right?

    • felipe quezada

      You are so wrong

    • nemo37

      lol…what? It is one of the most polished games I have seen in a long time. You have clearly never played anything by Ubisoft to know what buggy and mess of a game mean.

    • TimsDominion

      Don’t feed the troll guys 😀
      Nobody in his right mindset would call MK8D a buggy mess.

    Now add a Daisy amiibo suit!
