Needs triple mushrooms
Default How do you want coins to work?

When I first heard coins were back, I groaned as I thought about hwo they simple made it harder to get stars on Super Circuit, basically forcing you to a specific track line.

But online, after I think abotu it, there's a lot they can do with coins. Maybe use them to unlock characters and vehicle parts, or to give first place a speed boost, or maybe for extra VR after a race.

What do you think?

Simple. They'll probably work like they did in earlier games. More coins, faster top speed, better defense.

^This.
I don't really see the coins having any other purpose.

Same with me, although some are saying it should count towards additional VR or better kart upgrades. But those ideas defeat the purpose of the game

I guess that's a good idea too.

IDK if I like faster top speed. Protection from items is great, but if it also improves your speed whomever gets those first few coins is GAWN!

Also the number of coins you need to guard from an item should be based on that item:

3: banana, green shell
4: blooper, FIB
5: red shell
6: POW
8: lightning
10: spiny shell

I think they're a good idea. They'll add a new aspect to racing if implemented correctly. If players have to find a balance between lines/coins for best results that'll certainly be interesting for the metagame.

I don't like the protection from items idea at all. It just seems like a cheap mechanism to have. For the coins, "slightly" faster increase on top speed would be okay. Only problem is that players starting in the front could just grab most if not all the coins on the very first lap and the players starting in the back would be out of luck, so that might be a bad idea...

If anything coins can be used to purchase coin-specific content in the game. Concept Art, character art, if an emblem editor is placed in then more emblems/options, more vehicle parts, a few characters, extra battle and/or VS stages, and other things.
