This is in no way to flame Nintendo since they have received enough heat from poor Wii u sales. We would like battle mode in Mario Kart 8 fixed. They have sabotaged battle mode by using race tracks that are already made for racing mode. They couldnt even create new battle arenas. Very lazy move on a game that can change the direction of Wii U sales. There is nothing innovating about battle mode like Nintendo did for racing mode. Coin Runners was even removed so this is the least amount of time in the Mario Kart series we have ever seen for battle mode. There are numerous rumors going on about why battle mode is like this. We have read Nintendo now has lower budgets for new games because of poor Wii U sales, they were in a rush, they hired lower level graphic designers to save money, they don't care what they do with battle mode because Nintendo can do whatever they want. 

The game so far looks beautiful and we all want Nintendo to succeed. To help sales even more the game should have a complete battle mode with some new modes or include some of the old options like these listed below. 

Coin Runners
Capture the flag
Shine Runners
Bob-omb Blast
Shine Thief 

Create battle arenas or to make it easy just copy the arenas from Mario Kart Wii and previous Mario Karts. There are many of us that have canceled our pre-orders or just decided not to buy due to many flaws in the game. Those examples include a mixture of these reasons

Battle mode flawed

Poor choice of characters in character roster

no mini map

items no longer kept secret

one item at a time instead of two


We understand Nintendo is not perfect and don't expect all of these issues to be addressed but perhaps these are things Nintendo can look into. We would be satisfied if Nintendo is willing to address some of these issues through DLC in the future.

      Battle mode was my favorite mode in mario kart wii. Now I never play. The whole time I'm chasing my friends instead of battling..there's no quick options for turning around so they easily get away if going opposite direction.

      Battle mode was one of my favorite things about mario kart and the courses were always fantastic. I can't find anyone on the racetrack!
