So I guess I set up a weekly tournament for this. I was dicking around to see how it all worked, but there is a tournament now. It takes place every week between Saturday at noon and Sunday at 10pm. All vehicles, all items, no teams, CPU racers are on normal. Etc, etc.
The tournament is called Pumpernickel Racing and the code to get in is 7197-6193-7534.
On the one hand, that is fucking cool. Like, not just a character or a track, but multiple characters, multiple circuits and even new vehicles. The only part about it that's not cool is how crazy long we have to wait for it.
Link is very fun to play as, and i love the five new tracks, i just wish the cups were all new tracks instead of new (5) mixed with remakes (3).
Excitebike arena, Dragon Driftway and Mute City are great, ice ice roadway has some hidden shortcuts that are fun/hard to get, but i feel it's the weakest of the new tracks. Hyrule castle, however... soooooo good. Everything is zelda. piranha plants are deku babas, coins are rupees, item boxes make the sound when you open a chest instead of the traditional vegas spinwheel sound, the swoopers are keese, and everything just feels right.
mute city also has f-zero things (the charge strips give you coins and encase you in the healing rings from f-zero, it has a bunch of speed boosts, and if you drive the blue falcon on it, it feels great, but it's no hyrule castle. Also, i love how Excitebike is different everytime you play, sometimes the combos are crazy.
honestly, dragon driftway would be my second favorite behind Hyrule Castle, followed closely by excitebike arena and then mute city. i wish those 4 were 1 cup, and then the 3 remakes plus ice ice outpost was it's own cup.
as for the remakes, they are good, but the SNES rainbow road is by far the best of the 3.
The remakes have SNES Rainbow Road? That's all I needed to hear.
