Mario Kart 8: Wii U trailer released

Mario Kart 8 for Wii 11

Mario Kart 8 is finally coming! For the unlikely few that may need convincing of the game’s pedigree we have a release trailer for you.

One of the titles that is surely going to give Wii U a well-needed boost is due out in Europe on May 30th. Limited edition pre-orders were announced last month bundling the game with a Spiny Shell collectors item.

Included in the Mario Kart 8’s new features will be anti-gravity racing, Mario Kart TV, which allows gamers to share clips from their races via Miiverse and there’s even been rumours of 4 player Grand Prix mode. And of course all of this is going to be rendered in glorious HD.

There’s nothing from the trailer below to suggest Mario Kart is lacking any of the components that make Nintendo’s racer the ‘must have’ title that’s been at the forefront of Nintendo's game portfolio since the heady days when SNES ruled the world Check it out.
