Mario Kart 8 - New Hideki Konno Interview Details

Gamekult recently published an interview with Hideki Konno. The details when the game’s development began, confirms EAD Kyoto as the only team working on the game, and has some details about customization and track size, the possibility of a Double Dash mode with the GamePad, and more.

- Mario Kart 8 development began just more than a year ago.
No other Nintendo studio involved.

- About the Gamepad use: "Our priority is to provide the remote display on the GamePad only. We have other ideas, but that’s all we can tell you for now."

 - About tracks size: "In Mario Kart 8 tracks have also been narrowed compared to Mario Kart Wii and reflects more the size of the road."

- About customization: Like Mario Kart 7 (but) with a little more choice.
No editor even if they talk about it. 

- About a Double Dash mode using the Gamepad: "H. Konno: For Mario Kart Wii, 7 and 8, we decided not to use it. But this is a request that is often heard, so maybe we can meet this desire."

 - Why no F-Zero instead?: "It has always been a Mario Kart per console, so we wanted to get a new one to have more people interested by our new system. But I also hope that there will be an F-Zero."
