  1. Pokken tournament comfirmed by game freak!!!! Just saw the teaser trailer, and it was sick!!! It had machamp, fighting lucario

              1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

                No they aren’t, what bothers me is that any announcement made for the Wii U always comes last…

  2. Glad this is early in the morning update for me. My daughter would freak I’d she couldn’t play this game while they updated or with the new stuff. LOL.

    Wonder if they could get more characters or lose some of the lesser used ones…

    Damn phone, I’d is IF.

  3. I hope nintendo will be ready (hence the maintenance) for the massive load their servers will received. This update is highly anticipated and millions will rush to get it as soon as possible. I hope this update will bring something more to the game, and this type of update will increase the replay value. Maybe this update is include in the 1 year mario kart campaign stated by Nintendo back in March.

    1. Nintendo Sub-Lieutenant

      Anything to liven up the online community again. I kept being placed into the same room with this guy who wasn’t on my friends list. This happened ALL DAY LONG.

  4. I kind of totally forgot about this! This is sweet! Can wake up to free kart DLC inbound along with general improvements ^_^. This is a good direction Nintendo, hopefully they’ll continue to support MK8 like this on a more regular basis to keep the game fresh.
