A few details:

- four player local multiplayer
- 12-player online
- car customization,
- support for video capture and sharing via the Miiverse

Thanks!

Aren't these all already implemented with MKWii, though?



Kart customization and Miiverse weren't silly! 12 players is notable because MK7 only had 8, and 4 local players is notable because many thought it'd atleast support 5 with the game pad and all.

Looks good, but why does it look like it is taking ideas from F-zero that's my only problem why doesn't nintendo just make an f-zero game to and where is my starfox dammit

Because of a difference of over 30Mil sales :P


I honestly don't believe mario kart will sell that much again. And limiting the amount of different games on your system is not going to help grow the user base.

Well MiiVerse of course wasn't, but capturing MK was! And I forgot to differentiate that MK7 had Kart Customization, Wii.

Do you think they might expand on the Kart Customization aspect, though? I say, not much.

Still, during a time where the system is struggling it makes more sense to release a system seller than a niche game.



It's MK7 with a few extra gimmicks... and really, that's all I could ask for. :)

Amazing in every sense of the word. the giant courses, stunning visuals, lot's of alternative courses including wall and ceiling racing. what's not to love about it?



Not enough to get me to buy a Wii U. But thanks to Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem I'll be getting one soon hopefully.



MK8 will be one of the first two games I will get when I buy a Wii-U.

The other being SSB4.

The graphics look good, the new mechanics look fun, and the tracks seemed pretty creative from what I could see. So, yeah, I am pretty excited to play it. Although, the zero gravity stuff was taken from f zero... Which reminds me, where is my new F Zero game, Nintendo? :(




Nintendo still doomed?
Feel free to add me on 3DS or Switch! (PM me if you do ^-^)
