Oh yeah, there was that weird phase with F-Zero AX and that one Madden game, where somebody apparently decided that the five or six people who still live near a modern arcade were a broad enough market to justify implementing some kind of console-arcade memory connectivity. Or does that sort of thing still exist in certain places?

Proper arcades aren't as rare outside of Japan as you'd think.

To be honest I don't see why there needs to be so many characters in a game where the actual character serves no purpose. Even if they each had a special item.

Eh. I think that was only a real problem in Wii, where the karts also had no clear connections to any particular characters. DS was pushing it a little by letting anyone drive anyone's car but the fact that each character explicitly had their own set made them still feel relevant, y'know?

What would be really beautiful is if, some time in the future, they did another Double-Dash!!-type game with your two characters talking to each other occasionally (getting hit many times in a row, falling off the track, staying in first place for a long time, winning, losing) with unique conversation possibilities for each combination... only in my wishes...

That of course requires them to allow the characters to talk at all. Which they never really will.

Crash Tag-Team Racing did something similar to what you suggested, though.

It's such a shame, Martinet clearly loves what he does and when he's given the chances he makes Mario a chatterbox, but not one that feels out-of-character at all. Then Japan is all NO. NO. ALL NINTENDO CHARACTERS MUST BE LINK. PERSONALITIES MAKE CHARACTERS BAD. GAH.

Well, to be fair, look what happened when they made Samus fully voiced.

I'm not blaming you personally for this--because it's unfortunately a good point--but the argument for having no voice acting in Nintendo games because it didn't work out very well once or twice is really dumb. Voice acting in and of itself is not detrimental--hiring [dukar]ty actors and working off a bad script is.

F-ZERO GX has good voice acting. Punch-Out!!. Cheesy as it is, I like how Kid Icarus Uprising's is sounding.

On-topic: It would be interesting to see Nintendo revert back to the original eight character setup: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Toad, DK Jr., Koopa Troopa, and Bowser. That would make for a great comeback. Unlockables could be possible, including newer (than SMK) characters like Wario, Waluigi, Birdo, DK (lol), etc.
