You might think to yourself, if you've already seen the smattering of coverage today of Mario Kart 8, "why is Ludwig singling out Wendy O. Koopa?" Well, it's REALLY noticeable, and I'm sensitive to Koopa-abuse.
She's hit by a Red Shell at :46 by Shy Guy, hit by Peach at 1:38 with the new "Eight" item (which is pretty much the Rosalina twirl gravity thing), and hit by Shy Guy AGAIN at 1:46 by the Eight item AGAIN. There is, of course, a lot more to notice than that: New items, courses, characters, awesome music... But dang, Wendy O. Koopa is not doing well here. And I'm pretty sure I don't show up at all.
Speaking of that awesome music, this edition of Rainbow Road might even be better than F-Zero X's Rainbow Road.
