The Koopalings are in Mario Kart 8!
Long overdue given how many games the characters have been in since their return in Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, but it’s good news regardless. Basically, the Koopalings (the fan favourite characters that were widely considered Bowser’s kids) are now playable characters in Mario Kart 8.

Are you happy the Koopalings are in the game?
