Mario Kart: Talkie by apathyzeal Mario Kart: Talkie by apathyzeal
This is what i'm hoping from Mario Kart 8. Of course, this doesn't leave any room for retro tracks, because there ARE no retro tracks from before 1929.

I tried to make this look a lot like a cartoon from 1929. Should have put a fake copyright date on it or something. Also, not every character needs a tophat so shut up.

Not pictures: Toad riding an old timey giant front tired bicycle, Koopa Troopa flying Red Baron style. Also I guess maybe I should have had Wario tie Peach to the tracks. But it seems more like a Bowser action.

Also, Daisy in Betty Boop style. Have fun with that, fan boys.

Haha, lols! I love old cartoon style. It would have been really funny to see everyone in an old fashion racing kart or something here.

Haha, Daisy here reminds me of this really funny Mario Kart parody on YouTube.

You know, haha, I'm glad someone noticed that! I almost used the old one, and even toyed around with making an even more old school one! In the end, I remember choosing this for a reason, but damned if I recall what that reason was.

For a picture of a Mario Kart race it seems that Luigi is the only 1 that is atually racing.

Thanks! I wanted to do an old-timey bike, too, with the giant front wheel, but the picture was already too busy.
