Mario Kart 7’s English release isn’t far away now and fans are keen to see the game in 3D and enjoy the new features added. One new feature is the customisation feature which allows gamers to mix and match different parts of their karts. Think that sounds awesome? Well Miyamoto wasn’t keen on the idea.
Speaking to 1up he said, even though the feature had made it into the final game he wasn’t completely happy with it as he thinks it takes away the “core fun” of the series.
“I was actually pretty well against some of the customisation features of the game,” he explained.
“It can be fun to win money for racing and use it to buy parts and such, but I didn’t think that had much to do with the core fun of the series.”
“The idea for that [feature] came from the studio staff, though, and my final response was ‘If you can build this customisation on top of a solid control and gameplay foundation, then go ahead.’
So, if the game hadn’t ended up solid the feature wouldn’t have made it in. What do you guys think? Does it take away the core fun of the series?
