Mario Kart 8 will now save your most-recent kart settings between play sessions – so there’s no more setting up your racer every time you load the game.
The menu options for “Next Race” and “Watch Highlight Reel” will be switched – a much-requested change by fans – and you’ll be able to alter options for other user’s highlight reels to watch different characters or events.
Thank the lord. It felt like Mario Kart’s menu designer was the same person who made iOS 7’s Shift key.
