Welcome to Nintendo Friday Night Fights!
It's almost time! Earlier this week, Nintendo hosted another Nintendo Direct,
this time completely focused on Mariokart 8.
It's looking preeeeeeety good. The only thing I take issue with is the character selection this time around. I have Koopalings to keep me busy, but the rest of the new ones are kinda meh. (Rosalina's cool) The game looks so fun that any character will suffice, though. And how about that ability to destroy blue shells! FINALLY.
Over here, the OST was uploaded by some Youtubers for maximum hype-building.
This is obviously going to be Nintendo FNFs new #1, so get kartin' ASAP. I think some MK7 practice sounds good. Any hosts for that?
Meanwhile, as was announced recently,
Nintendo is shutting down online services for all Wii and DS games that used it. You'll still be able to use the shops, and entertainment services (like Hulu, Netflix, etc.,) but no more online multiplayer. As of now, it looks like this takes effect on May 20 of this year.
I think a send-off is in order. Fight?
