Molehill Mountain Episode 49 – Mario Kart Needs More Road Rage


This week, Nintendo made a reasonable localization decision. I know, we were surprised too!

28:17 – Nintendo replaces obscene gesture in Mario Kart 8

34:26 – No Destiny 2 on Switch because the game is online-only

39:52 – World of Tank devs are using copyright in order to censor harsh criticism

7:57 PMeathdemon1 e3 prodiction from each of you? me, mario maker port for switch

7:59 PMJubaJubaJubbaJamsI’d consider getting the Switch if there is another Smash Bros for it.

7:59 PMeathdemon99.995% sure smash will be ported

7:59 PMJubaJubaJubbaJamsI’m fine with a port. Never played the WiiU one.

8:03 PMJubaJubaJubbaJamsA new F-Zero would be nice.

8:03 PMeathdemonlol

8:05 PMeathdemonyes I do

8:05 PMeathdemonso early spring?

8:06 PM13Ucubehave a really stupid question, does the switch have a touchscreen? i know i can look this up

8:07 PMeathdemonnah it will do better than wiiu, jap devs seem to be all in, and they werent for the wiiu

8:07 PMjordan thompsonam I really late or just extra early for the next show

8:09 PM13Ucubethis is the final tamping down of the top of the molehill

8:13 PM13Ucubei’m predicting a Tales game for switch

8:13 PMJubaJubaJubbaJamsI would love that. I had my eye on Valkyria Chronicles for years but never got to it.

8:14 PMeathdemonplatnuim is hinting at a new game

8:14 PM13Ucubeif you predict things that you know, you shouldn’t be wrong

8:14 PMjordan thompsonat this rate Nintendo is just waiting for the generation that knew f zero to die out , then as the last human that knew about it dies off they make f zero 2200 on the Nintendo Wii switch u 64

8:15 PM13UcubeDo you think the Japanese version of the Twinelle has less clothes?

8:16 PMeathdemonhere is a idea a track maker for mario kart?
