What's stopping Nintendo from Adding new characters?

Really, it's not like they have to design unique vehicles for each characters. All Nintendo has to do is make stunt & victory animations. It couldn't be more easy for them. With all I've seen of MK8 I think its completely lazy. Can I at least have Hammer Bro please?

I read somewhere that Nintendo is against DLC, because they want to release fully finished games...

In other words, they are not EA xd

That only applies to when they're adding new game modes or bug fixes does it not? Didn't Mario Golf World Tour have DLC? Isn't there a Mercedes Bens DLC? Excuses if Nintendo really said that.

We're getting the Mercedes DLC soon. Also Fire Emblem Awakening had DLC.

So... Nintendo can't keep their story straight apparently.

"All one has to do to reach the top of Mount Everest is climb it."

Seriously, I'd bet that making just the roster for this game cost more than it did to make the entirety of MKDS. It hasn't even been two months yet, and we are almost certainly getting DLC. I understand that waiting is hard and there are some characters you would love to race as, but there's only so much that can happen and calling Nintendo lazy isn't really going to help anyone in the end.

Also, being lazy and developing video games are mutually exclusive, at any level/budget.

Every character drives the same vehicles just with different animations. Hell I've seen games do far better its that Mario games can get away with whatever they put out. Not mentioning any specific names but there's a game out there with 31 characters each having 3 different vehicles and its a 3rd party game. Just accept that Nintendo has triple A IPs putting out 3rd party effort.

Nintendo's stopping Nintendo from adding extra content.

That's a serious answer, by the way.
