Waluigi too creepy for Mario Kart 7?
I think anybody would agree that Waluigi is pretty much the creepiest guy in the whole Mushroom Kingdom. Hell, ever since that guy hit the scene even Wario and Birdo are looked upon as normal, classic Mario characters. Waluigi's creep factor may in fact have been high enough for him to be left out ofMario Kart 7.
The game's director Kosuke Yabuki has recently commented on why the purple plumber didn't make the cut in Nintendo's latest racing romp. He said that they definitely wanted to include new characters and that they had to scrap a few older ones because of it. But why was Waluigi booted off the team? Well...because of "the game's charm."
The Japanese phrasing is a bit vague, but apparently the addition of Waluigi would have detracted from the game's charm somehow. But if you just take one look at the guy, that's pretty much obvious. Waa!

This is actually kind of hilarious.
Though I love Waluigi for being creepy.
well you can't argue with nintendo waluigi is wierd
I always appreciated Waluigi as the anti-Luigi even if there's no reason for his existence other than just that. I feel a little sorry for him, I mean you think he'd show up in WarioWare or something.
He means a SEPARATE character, although I'd say that one Mario is still more than enough. Mario definitely isn't MY favorite Nintendo character, nor my favorite from the Mario franchise.
Yes, because Honey Queen, Rosalina and METAL MARIO added to the game's charm.
Oh man, those two characters make me sick. They're AWFUL ABOMINATIONS. Screw you, Super Mario Galaxy, for introducing two characters whom I will eternally hate.
Honestly, between Waluigi, Dry Bones AND R.O.B, Mario Kart 7 really is missing some great characters, and all we got in their place were a bunch of pansies. Daisy. Ugh. Although at least she's not Honey Queen....
i think they should offer him as DLC
I kinda missed him, Nintendo should flesh him out a bit more then maybe people would care more about him.
I find it ironic that mario is the more popular brother and now wario is the more popular brother
dude wat ru talkin about? Metal Mario IS MARIO!!!!! He is a character. If he was just a power up like ur saying. It would just be the metal hat driving the kart.
Meh, I didn't really mind that Waluigi was left out.
I never cared for Waluigi that much. He was just one of those characters I'm actually (people are going to kill me for saying this) kinda glad he stays in the spinoffs. BUT OF ALL CHARACTERS WHY DID YOU PUT IN METAL MARIO!?! It would of been better to put Waluigi in. And, if you didn't want to put in Waluigi Nintendo and wanted a 2nd Mario in the game then you should of done Cosmic or Shadow Mario (aka - Bowser J.R.). At least they are characters while Metal Mario is a powerup... Whatever. Mario Kart 7 is really fun, and even though they don't have Waluigi and a stupid character instead that should not keep you from buying the game.
Waluigi is not creepy at all. Birdo is. A male being that shoots eggs from his mouth is disturbing.
I use to work with a guy who looked liked the love child of waluigi and mr burns, the guy was the creepiest scummiest person ive ever seen. so screw waluigi
that is complete bullsh!t , don't use that as an excuse for your rushed game
There are 2 things for me which takes the charm out of MK7 in comparison to MK DS. First one and most important, they scraped the VS. Mode, a featured that ensured me playing MK DS whenever I felt the need to releax anywhere, I've been playing that game more than anyother handheld or even console game, and I don't really play handheld that much (although I own all the current gen hand helds and games, I just complete them and move on). Secondly, Waluigi, a character who has yet to starr in a game now being scrapped but what bugs me more is that they keep including GENERIC characters sush as Koopa or even Toad ( I know they've been around since MK 1), Shy Guy even Wiggler. I'm cool with Queen Bee, Rosalina, but these others are mostly generic enemies, and personally never cared for Metal Mario since he's just Mario painted in Grey, I think is cheap, I loved Waluigi's attitude. Speaking of which, there are a few Fam Made games online featuring Waluigi, the most Popular is "Pscho Waluigi" which has a pretty neat gimmick that could perfectly fit either of Nintendo's new system, the Psychic aim control . I whish Nintendo would take notice, or even oficially publish that game, they have any other plumber starr in agame so why not Waluigi? They can make 30000 generic mini game games but not one Waluigi game? What the hell do they have to lose?
Waluigi is my favorite second-line character. I always pick him in Mario Party, Kart, Tennis, Whatever... I MISS YOU WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALUIGI NUMBER-A-ONE
I never liked Waluigi. So... Good.
Um... survey says... bullsh*t.
..I've never really given a damn about Waluigi. Don't really see a need for him, at all.
