I got a "Payment Revision Needed" on Amazon Japan's site. The info is correct. I would honestly just prefer to cancel at this point but it doesn't give me that option either.

Do you just need to create a Amazon jp account and buy it? Thinking of returning my physical copy and going digital for this.

Got this pre-ordered for tomorrow at Best Buy. Will be playing tomorrow night with my GF. The last time I played a Mario Kart with a girlfriend on release was the Wii one, and a different girlfriend. We almost broke up because of it.

TIME TO GET SALTY WHEN SHE BEATS ME!

Hey does GameStop do 20% off new games like bestbuy gamer club or Amazon prime? I have 80 GameStop credits but don't want to pay full price for the game

Tempted, because you can download and play it right now from the japanese eshop.

But I have my cartridge coming from Amazon.com. I can wait, at least that's what I'm telling myself.

Hah, what a way to get the game early digitally. And this is going to work for every game with a worldwide release if you're willing to go digital.

Had a good time with GAF tournament on Wii U, also I was banned at that time and saw that I angered a few people with my Bowser x)
But then it was fire hopping galore and could only hit 1st with a lot of luck, anyway I recommend everyone to play in GAF tournament.

Can you use 2 Joy-Con with one in each hand (a bit like Wiimote+Nunchuk) or must they absolutely be embedded in a Joy-Con Grip?

Skipped out on MK7 and didn't own a Wii U, but played a bit of regular 8 on that with friends who did own a Wii U. Excited to jump back in the Mario Kart fold, especially because the GOAT characters, Dry Bones and King Boo, are back.

Unfortunately there isn't enough new in Deluxe for me to re-buy it, especially after I burnt myself out on the Wii U release, but do know I'm jealous of you that get to experience it for the first time.

Standard has no hardware in it, and when the joy cons are separated from the machine, it can't tell if they're doing anything afaik. So split cons are a go.

I'll be using this set up because it's amazing.

Can't wait to online Battle Mode. MK is sort of the perfect game to play during a "break" from gaming.
