This lovely image represents the entirety of the final roster in Mario Kart 8.
There's a lot of excitement surrounding the upcoming release of each game in the series, and there's a lot of hope that Nintendo has riding on the success of the upcoming racer after disappointing sales for its Wii U console thus far. That said, there's nothing stopping gamers from anticipating the arrival of the new karting title.
Fans are always intrigued to learn what racers and stages await them in the latest iteration of Mario Kart. The entirety of Mario Kart 8's roster and tracks have been unveiled, and some gamers were disappointed by the lack of fan-favorite options. A number of key mascots are missing from the 30-character roster, and while the Koopa Kids make for nice additions, other racers like Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach seem more pointless than preferable.
It's because of this that we decided to create a list of 10 characters that should be playable in Mario Kart 8. While we know these drivers won't ship with the game later this May, perhaps they could arrive in the future as DLC. Keeping that in mind, here we-a-go!
