- Paper Mario: Color Splash was claimed by Zoë Quinn to contain a personal attack on her by referencing the GamerGate Scandal, a harrassment campaign targeted at her and other female indie game developers.

You're gonna open a can of worms by referring to it that way, I think

How should I, then? I don't want to offend anyone; I'm just stating what I know. I don't know what Nintendo was really referencing; all I know is what they claimed they parodied and how it came off to Zoë.

Day 6

- Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic features a white Mouser in World 5-3, which would be entirely replaced by Clawgrip in Super Mario Bros. 2
- Rockman & Forte (released for the Game Boy Advance in other regions as Mega Man & Bass) borrows graphics from Mega Man 8, yet borrows sound effects from Mega Man 7
- Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit)'s version of Robotnik's Sonic clone appears in the Metal Sonic boss in Sonic Mania

Day 7

- Wario Stadium is the only Mario Kart 64 track yet to reappear as a retro track in a later Mario Kart title

- 50% of the Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge OST is in A minor
- one of the code names used for the Nintendo 64 during development was "Project Reality"
- Microsoft Entertainment Pack game SkiFree received a 32-bit remake from its original programmer, Chris Pirih, 14 years after its initial release

Unless I'm completely misunderstanding you, there was also Rainbow Road and Toad's Turnpike, among others I think. But those two were definitely in 8.

Yep. Those two are in 8, leaving Wario Stadium as the last to be remade.

I don't quite understand what you mean, THC. Hopefully this should explain myself better.

Red: DS
Yellow: Wii
Green: 3DS
Blue: Wii U
Black: Not remade

Luigi Raceway
Moo Moo Farm
Koopa Troopa Beach
Kalimari Desert
Toad's Turnpike
Frappe Snowland
Choco Mountain
Mario Raceway
Wario Stadium
Sherbet Land
Royal Raceway
Bowser's Castle
DK's Jungle Parkway
Yoshi Valley
Banshee Boardwalk
Rainbow Road

As you can see, Mario Kart 8 could have finished this if 7 took 4 tracks instead of just 3.

Oh, I see what I was misreading. The fact that a separate track called Wario Stadium was in DS and 8 didn't help, but I misread "yet" as meaning the only one to be included, not the only one to be excluded.

Oh yea, I see where you're coming from.

This track probably hasn't been remade yet because it's too long to be given 3 laps, too short to be split into sections, and (I think) it's just plain boring. But Nintendo has its ways with making even tracks like these into masterpiece remasters.

- 50% of the Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge OST is in A minor
And I thought Kirby OSTs spammed the snot out of C major, A minor, and C minor (to the point that even other closely related keys, such as D minor, are underrepresented).
