I wish they would add chat in game with all players with the option to turn it off. I'm glad they are adding more karts though.

They actually do this a lot.

Pikmin 3's had three or so major updates at this point, not just adding DLC support.

I'm a bit surprised as their games seem quite polished before being released. However, MK7 received a patch. So did a Pokemon game.

1st party Wii U games have actually been getting decent post launch support. Multiple games have added new control schemes for instance.

Yessss. This fixes every complaint about the game I had except for battle mode arenas.
Especially the no on-screen map, while the gamepad player had a map to themselves.

It's nice to see Nintendo updating something with more than just stability.

Can we start a hashtag campaign real quick over this? Maybe they can squeeze it into this update.

I don't think I understand the menu gp change thing everyone's yelling praise over.

Answer me this: is whatever they're updating going to change how fucking long it takes to end one race and get into the next when you're online with a group or in a tournament?

The loading, and then the slow track selection process, and then the little slot roulette as all the dumb Miis stare up at which track it lands on, and then the slow ass load for the track itself....I just want to get into the next race and go instead of losing 3-5 mins between races.

I don't know WTF they were thinking when they decided no one needed a map. Next they need to make split screen be horizontal instead of vertical. I feel like whoever designed the game doesn't actually drive because you can't even see where you're turning
