Mario Kart 7 has been treated with a new trailer a few new screenshots which, among other things, give us our first look at the new first-person mode in the game. Check it all out after the break.
Hate to burst your bubble, but if you caught that while Mario got Blooped, it looked metal, but it wasn’t. That was Blooper ink.
There is a Metal Box item or Kart that turns you metal. Something to that degree. It was shown off in a post-conference interview with developers.
hes probably more than just a suite… more like a metal mario playable charicter..if they can add more charicters to the already huge amount of playable charicters to mario karts , then imagine what they can do to super smash bros 3d!!! the games gonna be amazing!!
(im still praying isaac from golden sun is gonna be in ssb3D)
it is a playable character, it was told that lakitu and metal mario are both playable characters on the conference interview.
Slightly disappointed that it’s not a Kart that turns you metal like some translations were saying. I’d honestly like to see that more than Metal Mario.
He look you guys, it’s the 7 Up guy.
(7 up guy) Hey, 7 UP YOURS.
OH MY GOSH…….THE BLUE SHELL WITHOUT WINGS IS BACK!!! SPREAD THE WORD!!
Saw the vid again and feel like an uber dumbass. My bad, man.
I think the metal item was originally on the Mario Kart arcade GP 1 and/or 2
but now it makes its way to a Nintendo System
Is it just me or is Luigi “metal” right at the beginning of the video and after a few seconds he turns “normal”?
It’s just Lugi.
And that Metal item power up from one of the 2 Mario Kart Arcade games.
But I want the Black Turtle shell & Triple Black Turtle Shells.
They work like green ones, but they blow up like bombs.
You know what? They should add a metal box as a power-up and here’s why:
1) It it make you classify for a heavy character, so you could push over oppenents.
2) It can be used as a weight in the air or water. Immediate drop offs when used in the air to land specifically in one spot and quicker movement underwater (just like Super Mario 64).
3) The downside would be no traction on ice.
First! Great game Mario Kart is a great game.
First person View and… MY GOD!
Its like they just screwed the rules of “you fall to the water, you wait ’till lakitu puts you back to the road” and the “follow the road MO-FO” rules!!
Woohoo, first person view in 3D
Is there a link to the video of Lakitu as a playable character yet??
Hurray second person 2 comment
and i are 3rd :P
Cool story bro
first person? i didnt like it when i saw it on the live stream, and i dont like it now
HURR DURRR THAT’S WHY IT’S OPTIONAL.
^Wheres a like button when you need it?
OMG that first person view is epic
OMG! Is that a first-person mode?!
Metal Powerup! :D
screw the metal powerup, FIREFLOWER!!!
oh, and sexy looking ice level :D
Metal Mario Actually.
It’s actually Metal Mario.
Fire special, FTW!
WTF first personn view at the end of the trailer ?????
First person view! Wow, unexpected.
So sad snaking has been replaced by drifting…
YES! Snaking was dumb. One of the only things keeping Mario Kart DS from being perfect.
WHAT?! no snaking?! :(
Mario Kart DS is one of my favorite games out of the whole collection. Snaking was pretty bad though. MK DS Rainbow Road FTW!
I want to see it return.
wow first person kart view! this is gonna sell 3ds all over the world! Not only does it look fun, they have reinvented the game agaiN! ;) i will pre-purchase this game asap!
Is that a Metal Power-Up, or Metal Mario, which makes him a new character?
metal mario! new character!
this game looks very promising an it comes out on my birthday. It also looks like we will also have a new metal power up ingame maybe the metal cap from super mario 64
bad quality trailer :/
if you were watching it full screen or something, then yeah, these 3DS don’t look good at all. You can’t expect a game that’s supposed to be on a screen the size of a credit card to look good on a full sized computer, even if it is not full screen…
resolution of this video is just shitty, doesn’t matter how big it is
oh shut up, be happy you can actually see an updated trailer and dont be a spoiled brat, imagine if you were born 100 years earlier, you would kill for that kind of Color tv, hell you would kill for electricity, so i say stop being the typical spoiled whiny american brat, and stop complaining
hey at least there’s a video!!
true, BUT it could be a lot better! :P
Super Leaf Power-Up: SWEET!
Nice spotting :D
Looks incredible! I’m so excited!
first person mode!!! thats crazy awesome!!!
The first race of the trailer shows Mario & co. racing around Wuhu Island (just like in the E3 2010 photos)!! Just makes me more excited! – I’m still waiting for a 3DS redesign though…
Anyone else spot the racoon leaf item from the new mario land game. It’s in the item roulette thing at the start
You can see it if you pause at exactly 0:06
Super Astute, guys!
Wonder what the leaf does.
That looks awesome!
I saw a 7
:O first person perspective!
All over my sausage.
and on my face…. damn that was messy pasta….
FIRE FLOWER ITEM? RACCOON ITEM? OMG OMG CANT WAIT!
I hate all this trick jumping crap. Ruined Mario Kart Wii. Go back to Double Dash formula.
NTY & GTFO. I like MKWii
Why complain about tricks? It’s not like the game controls are based around the idea of doing tricks. It’s just an extra thing that doesn’t do much anyway. No need to complain bro.
Someone went off the road when doing tricks :P
Enjoy your baby game.
I would like to see the hands of the driver on the wheel
I mean in 1st person mode
I KNEW something was missing from the wheel!! =P
It’s your hands I guess.
If you pause on the item roulette at the start of the video, you can see a 7 as an item. I wonder what that is? Maybe some kind of jackpot?
Perhaps it gives coins if you get it? You know since more coins apparently means more speed? An interesting idea to me at least.
Wow looks so good.
looks good. Looks still innovative
I might be crazy, but the course at 0:09 looks like an F-zero course. Does this mean we’re getting a new F-zero game for the 3ds?!
yes that is a rock-solid confirmation
I hope. (Perhaps Captain Falcon could make a cameo!!!)
Hey guys… wassup?
Cool they kept tricks, though their boosts look weaker than in MK: Wii
Is it me or did mario say $#!+ after he threw the fireballs?
He doesn’t say “SH**,” thats the sound of luigi being burned while Mario says “yes.” The ssssshhhhh comes from the fireball.
does anyone know where to see the conference again?
Why the heck does Mario say SH** at 0:43 (after hee hee)?
It’s a mix of Luigi getting burned “ssssshhhhh” and Mario saying “Yes!”
Mario is in 7th,
Mario kart 7< =D
3ds-screenshot.com has super mario 3D land screen shots guys
Thanks for the heads up! They are super cool to look at!
GUYS WE GOT THE OLD BLUE SHELL BACK!!
PAUSE AT THE RIGHT TIME AT 0:07
i still hate blue shell
@yoyo its really useful but effing annoying if youre in first
Is it just me, or does Mario say “shit!” at 0:43-0:45??
I’m pretty sure I caught a glimpse of the Waluigi Pinball round during the 2011 Conference… But I’m not sure.
There is nothing like that in this trailer, but could someone please confirm that they saw that round in the video shown at the conference? That’s my favorite track and I really hope they re-make it!
Yes, Waluigi Pinball is in this game. It is my favorite track, too, so I am super excited!
Yeah dude, i’ve seen it too. It appears for a second :D … The trailer is very recent, but i can’t find it. :/
i saw it too
I saw a tanooki suit leaf at 0:06 when the items are rotating!! :o
Rosalina is back, OMGROLDFNDUAHD Waluigi Pinball is back, Wario is back, Mii’s are back (with karts matching their color =D), N64 Kalimari Desert and DS DK Pass is back?! Theres no confirmation for that yet…
what i noticed in the roulette thing is that there was a racoon looking item. Some numbers and a bomb looking item.
Fireflower looks overpowered
Please don’t say that… or else people will start putting Tier Lists for items… ugh.
You know what’s overpowered matt17? Godzilla. Yes, Godzilla is overpowered. Thank heavens we never had to see him in action from the unreleased “Mario Kart Double Da-Oh My Lord Is That Mothra”?
someone always has to ruin it….
@Belinni thats been confirmed to be an addon comming out on december 6th. Only 5 steps and you reach the finish line. Can’t wait to play as Godzilla :D
Am i the only person that notiiced wuhu resort from pilot wings at 00:47-00:49
Are you for real? You .. NOTICED it from 0:47 – 0:49? This has been known since June 2010. Yes, 2010. The very first track shown in the trailer is the same course. There’s no “have you noticed”, about it, that’s like saying “Have you noticed the castle at the beginning of Super Mario 64?”
Yo dudes! I haven’t seen the conferance but is there a Super Mario 3D Land demo coming?
wheres the real david Turnbull to tell you no?
Metal Mario, lol.
I like that the new Mario Kart 7 trailer and I was wondering wich button you have to do tricks on Mario Kart 7?
Shake the 3ds?
My money would be on the D-Pad.
it’s unfortunate things like this happen, but like I said Nintendo Fans has made reputation of not supporting good quality 3rd party titles. I hope this time around Nintendo fans wake up and support good software, rather than low budget crap.
must have and also if you didnt see the confrence:http://www.nintendo.co.jp/n10/conference2011/presentation/index.html
At first I thought the new propeller and hang glider wouldn’t change the game much, but it seems like they really open it up: tracks like the Penguin one from Mario Kart Wii could really have benefited from these additions!
Metal Mario is an actual character, not a power up. Lakitu is the other confirmed character.
was there always drifting in the MK series?
since Double Dash
Better than MK Wii
So what’s the “extremely big title”? :(
moster hunter 4
There’s a whole bunch i dug about this trailer. I thought Mario was gonna die, but he went under water. I also saw a new powerup and the new view mode. This game has the potential to be one of the best.
Added underwater sections? Hopefully they won’t do that to Maple Treeway, the best course ever. (I saw that they brought it back.)
Also, it looks like they didn’t bring back bikes.
Even though it might seem easier now that they don’t reset you for falling in the water, it looks to me like the underwater section is kind of a punishment because you go slower
Woah! First person view! Didn’t see that one coming! The fire flower looks pretty neat too!
I hate mariokart and this looks horrible. WIll never be purchasing. PSvita waaaaaaaaay better!!!!!! thumbs up
@im a troll your a troll
After the PSP, no one is gonna be buying a PS handheld ever again.
except a few people here a & there, which means there will never be a PSP3 after the PSP2 (PS Vita)
and that’s Real Talk
You can’t thumbs up, plus nobody would because if they read this, they would hate your guts, like I do.
1st person mode? Awesome!
First person mode!!!!
THATS amazing (7th Pic)
Is the fire power exclusive to mario and maybe similar one for luigi, kinda like double dash? or maybe they will let luigi slow time around him for a while like brawl
Whoa, this looks amazing…nerd-gasm. :3
All I want is Diddy Kong and Pauline as racers and I;m good. I mean we get Peach, Daisy and even Rosalina so why not Pauline? Shes become a main character of the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series
We might get Diddy Kong because of Double Dash.
But who knows.
I certainly don’t.
I know, right? I mean, come ON! Rosalina only showed up in Super Mario Galaxy and she became a playable character (SMG2 came after MKWii). Not only that, but Pauline has made at least 3 appearances now herself (including the first Donkey Kong).
TANOOKI SHEET 0:06
New Bowser’s Castle FTW.
You guys are retarded, metal mario is a whole new playable character, the rpoducer of mario kart 7 even said so, so is lakitu a new playable character
When mario was playing in first person view it was playing on the gyroscope mode, you can play with the gyroscope now just like the wii
That’s hella cool!
