  • Once again, Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach are in
  • Crazy 8 item is the spiritual successor to Mario Kart 7′s Lucky 7
  • Super Horn: emits a sonic blast around your kart
  • This pulse can knock out other racers or ward off Green, Red, and Blue Shells
  • Super Horn is a rare item
  • Acts as a counter measure to the Blue Shell
  • Voice chat in lobbies for games with friends only
  • Tournaments are one of the bigger features in the game
  • Choose an icon and input name for it when they Create-A-Tournament
  • Select rules next
  • Can change the speed of the race (50cc, 100cc, 150cc) whether you want to allow racing as teams or even multiple rounds to decide a winner
  • Can also set if a tournament is public or restricted to friends
  • Other tweaks: restrict control schemes used in a race, whether computer players can fill in empty slots, and vehicle types (kart, bike, or ATVs) allowed in the race
  • Takes player ratings into account
  • You can set up a race so only players who achieved a certain online rank can join
  • Once a tournament is created, you have a number code to share with your friends, or it can be discovered publically via search
  • Daily/weekly/monthly recurring tournaments supports
  • Can set start/end times
  • Ex: a player could host a race for friends that occurs every Sunday night between 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. PT
  • Can set a tournament that has a specific start and end date, or even a number of races allowed within a set time
  • Whenever you create a tournament, you can choose which item sets are allowed in a race
  • Players can choose between: all items, shells only, bananas only, mushrooms only, bob-ombs only, no items, and Frantic Mode
  • Frantic Mode: higher frequency of powerful items like Lightning Bolts, Bullet Bills, and possibly Blue Shells
  • Game records all races you participate in
  • Game retains the events of the last 12 you competed in on the Wii U itself
  • These replays save everything that happened in the match, so you can use simple editing tools to tweak certain parameters
  • Replays aren’t finalized video, but gameplay footage you can quickly edit in Mario Kart TV
  • Not a complex editing system
  • By tweaking certain parameters, you can focus on specific drivers and moments
  • Video focuses on action, big hits, items, or drifting
  • Clips are 30, 45, or 60 seconds
  • You can also render a highlight reel to display the full race
  • Once a highlight film is edited, you can output a video to Miiverse or YouTube in HD
  • Unclear if 720p or 1080p
  • Players sign up with a Google Account and, while it’s uploading, you can edit a Miiverse post with stamps
  • Battle Mode features new and existing courses re-engineered for this mode
  • Battle mode replays can also be edited and shared by Mario Kart TV.
  • In multiplayer, the GamePad mirrors the same four-player split-screen that was on the television

Well done Nintendo.

When you touch me I die,
just a little inside,
I wonder if
this could be love.

I can't belive I'm saying this, but I really think this roster is a bit worse than MK7....There I said it.

Whatever, the game still looks awesome.

Nah. MK8 doesn't have than Honey Queen in it. It's OK.
Speaking of, I hope they didn't just reveal the whole racing roster like they pretty much did with MK7.

That my friends is a terrible roster.

How many characters do you really need to play with? Since the character doesn't affect performance, what does it matter?

Looking forward to:

VOICE CHAT?!?!?!?!

So battle mode is only on race tracks? But there's no laps though. I think I like it.

Isn't it great?! I especially love the track's intro in Grand Prix. Just something about helicopter revealing the Start line had me smiling.

Now this is the way to promote a game! I was going to get Super Mario 3D World as my big Nintendo game along with Pikmin 3 and Windwaker HD for the next few months, but I'll definitely get Kart now. I can get New Super Mario Bros. U with it!

Also, according to this page, the Mario Kart 8 Bundle is definitely coming out in NA as well as Europe
