First off, portability is a MASSIVE buff. Back in ye old Wii u days, there were too many other better games(IMO) too play at home, so I only played mk8 when my friends were over. Second, being able to play 2 player on the fly is awesome!!! Just imagine all the fun times! Third, battle mode. Sweet Jesus. Battle mode is ridiculously fun in all the Mario kart games, and I can't wait to play it here!
