It was an option in the G|C06 version of Battalion Wars II, though it's not included in the final version.

I wonder that as well, also why didn't they release a first party VGA Cable for the system. The Wii would be perfect for LAN gaming.

Looks like Mario Kart requires an update. No word about it nuking Freeloader, I'll definitely be checking that out when we get it in the shop on Wednesday.

SPOILERS...Most likely new character confirmed:

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u...rtle/funky.jpg

ITS FREAKING FUNKY KONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why would there be a stadium without the character?

Most Likely confirmed! w00t!

I want all the other characters already!

Also this reconfirms that my guess roster is right or close to it:

Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Bowser jr.

Toad, Toadette, Koopa, Dry Bones

Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy

Yoshi, Birdo, Diddy, Rosalina

Wario, Waluigi, DK, Funky Kong

King Boo, Bowser, Petey, R.O.B.

^^Above is my guess roster I made, when King Boo was confirmed and I got the roster's layout. Every character is connected with another one...of course I could be wrong so who knows?

OK above these charaters are not confirmed: Bowser jr, Birdo,Petey,R.O.B.,Dry Bones. all other characters are confirmed to be in.

So that means theres 5 more secret characters...

Most major retailers have been holding their Wii shipments until Sunday to coincide with their weekly ad circulars.

I found it strange the TV adverts all have people playing with Wiimote and Nunchuck rather than using the Wii Wheel.

:lol NoJ am sad.

One funny thing in "Iwata Asks" about MK Wii was that, after all the Kenichiro Ashida's work in Japan to develop a nice wheel for the game, going through 30 prototypes, Nintendo of Japan finally sent it to NoA and first email they got back was saying "HEY GUYZ CAN I PLAY WITH GAMCUBE CONTROLLER" lulz

So there.

I don't think there's any reason to be paranoid about lag, the only game that's ever been a problem with was Brawl, for its own reasons. Even MKDS worked fine once you got in a game.

Baby characters are so awful, what were they thinking :(

However the addition of Funky Kong and Rosalina is pretty awesome. Undead Bowser seems like such a strange choice, but he looks pretty badass...

However I just hate when characters that technically couldn't exist at the same time are all racing eachother :(

The only character without a counterpart is King Boo

Therefore it's SURELY God damn Petey Piranha

Why did they go for Bone Bowser?? Wouldn't WART WART WART be a better fit as a heavy?

Edit: Actually Yoshi hasn't got his own counterpart has he?

King Boo riding a motorcycle down what looks almost identical texture-wise to Double Dash's Rainbow Road pretty much confirms to me that Nintendo has really just tossed out whatever they could cook up.

I think I'll pass.

You know, I like Daisy quite a lot. But Baby Daisy is just getting to the point of absurdity. :/ (As if Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, and Baby Peach weren't already, of course. If they really had to scrape the bottom of the barrel that much, why not just unofficially turn the series into Nintendo Kart and be done with it? They already brought in Funky Kong and Diddy Kong. Just put in Link and Zelda, or whatever. I doubt anybody would complain, and they'd be a lot better than the babies. :/


Edit: Oh hey, beaten by miles to the same idea by Ariexv.
