    Kind of sucks that Banjo & Kazooie aren’t going to be back. That was part of the reason I picked the first game up on 360. Having avatars back is great though. They were one of the best racers in the game for 360.

    I still haven’t made up my mind on which portable version to get: Vita or 3DS. Those Vita ‘features’ don’t add much to the experience, but I like the idea of more content coming to the Vita. Hopefully they’ll at least release a trailer on the 3DS in order to see the 3D effect before pre-ordering closes.

      Well the Vita version runs on the same engine at the same framerate. It has the Metal Sonic and bonus stage Pre-Order DLC. And 3ds won’t have that. It will have 3D but it runs on a engine modified for 3ds cause it can’t run the original engine. Honestly Multiplat games are going to be a better choice for vita, plus MK7 will keep online inactive and PS Vita has way better online communication and party. I’m getting the Vita game over 3DS, for the fact it will be the better looking and you get first day bonuses. If you choose Vita. Add Teflon02. I’ll see ya on the race track

    Its kinda been bugging me that we STILL don’t have a single quality picture of Aiai in-game. But other than that, these pics look stunning!

    What about Ryo Hazuki? I suppose he wont be in either, would have shown him by now if he really was going to be in this iteration.

    I appreciate that the front of Tails’ boat is tipped white like one of his tails

    There goes Joe Musashi! I’m kinda glad that Banjo isn’t in the game.

    Same and Sakura Shinguji from Sakura Wars but no love for them in this game. We’ll only see awesome characters like that in Project X Zone. Time for me to buy a cheap Japanese 3DS.
