For the past 30+ years, Nintendo has been an essential part of growing up. The company’s long list of beloved characters include: Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Samus (Metroid), Link and Zelda, just to name a few. So when the company is trying to see new systems, this list is naturally the first place they will turn.
Nintendo is launching a blue spiny shell this spring when they release the long-awaited, Mario Kart 8. The Wii U debut of the beloved franchise will be released in North America on May 30.
