Video: Nintendo Minute Picks Some Favourite Mario Kart 8 Tracks

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Cloudtop Cruise! Mount Wario! Sunshine Airport!

There's just a bit — alright, a lot — of buzz around Mario Kart 8 at the moment, with this week's reviews generally declaring it to offer a jolly good time. We were happy campers in our own review, awarding it 9/10 and using the rather cheery tagline of "8th Wonder of the World". In other words, it's marvellous.

It's also just two weeks away, too, which means we can all look forward to racing around fun tracks and tackling each other online. Nintendo of America's YouTube show, Nintendo Minute, has also been doing its bit to build hype further through its series of 'Mario Kart MAYhem' videos. This week our hosts give us more juicy footage of the Wii U title in the form of a run-through of three favourite new tracks. We get a full look at Cloudtop Cruise, Mount Wario (which is brilliant) and Sunshine Airport, with plenty of chatter about the game while the last course is shown in local multiplayer.

You can check it out below, while we might as well also plug a video showing five of our favourite new tracks. Enjoy!

I wish I had the discipline to NOT watch these videos so that everything comes as a surprise when I actually play the game for the first time

@miss_dark Thanks to your comment, I just skimmed the video rather than watch the whole thing. Because you're right: I want to save some for my own discovery! It is hard to not look though

should be illegal to make a game looking this damn fun... take note sony, microsoft. not all about graphics, fun factor will always be #1...
