Honestly... I'm not. I really hate the current roster. 14/30 (basically half) of the roster are Koopalings, babies and metal characters, which are all ones I pretty much never touch. And, instead of getting good, interesting returning characters like Dry Bowser/Dry Bones/Diddy/Funky etc., we get all these... clones.

tl;dr Koopalings alone should not account for nearly 25% of the roster. That is just ridiculous.

The Koopalings are fine, all the babies and metal characters are not.

Also, you complain about adding "clones" then say you want Dry Bowser...

I like them tbh. The Koopalings have been long overdue for another spin off appearance anyway.

In the end, I really do not care. Mario kart is a fun game and that is why I bought it.
I do not want to sound offensive but I do not know any other way to word this. I do no "geek research" before hand to know what characters they had. One day on T.V. I see they have mario kart for wii U and I am like wow I did not have a new mario kart game in a long time, time to get a wii U,

I had no idea about the baby peach and such, basically anything outside the basic 8 from n64 was a surprise for me. I had no idea who daisy was and so on. I was like this is neat, there is a low of characters.
Fangirl of Baby Peach. Support the baby racers! They are not stupid.
I fire backwards because 3rd place came in 1st https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QiK-vW2du0

Considering this roster is about that many more characters than we've ever seen in a Mario Kart game? Yeah, sure. Besides, I like Morton, Ludwig, and Roy.

I see your point, however, I found Dry Bowser interesting.
Anyways, Dry Bowser is 1 character, as opposed to 7 koopalings, and 5 babies.

Maybe not ALL babies but 4 was excessive and 5 is ridiculous. Koopalings aren't as bad by comparison.

I said the babies should go.

Koopalings: 7 different characters, with different looks, personalities, and most importantly different weight classes.

Babies: 5 characters all in the same weight class
