It’s our very own Who Got Beef in the driver’s seat for our First Look Live Stream of Mario Kart 8 on the Wii-U.
Mario Kart 8 is the first entry in the long-running and much-loved Mario Kart franchise on Wii U. The game features anti-gravity racing, which lets players drive upside down and along walls in fantastically designed tracks. In addition to the return of many characters and items fans of the series know and love, Mario Kart 8 introduces new playable characters like all seven of Bowser’s Koopalings and new items like the player-chomping Piranha Plant and blue Spiny Shell-stopping Super Horn.
Online multiplayer modes return to Mario Kart 8 and are more social than ever before. Up to 12 players with broadband Internet access can compete with each other online and, using the new Mario Kart TV feature, watch and share highlights of their best racing moments on Miiverse and YouTube.
Mario Kart 8 is now available for pre-order at GameStop stores throughout North America. A deposit may be required for pre-orders. For more information about the game, visit http://mariokart8.nintendo.com.
