Considering the notable success of its predecessor and the fact that we've thoroughly enjoyed our limited hands-on time with it so far, there's little doubt that current and prospective owners Wii U are keeping a close eye on Mario Kart 8. Much is yet to be revealed — such as the online and multiplayer modes, the potential inclusion of Communities and so on — yet Nintendo has time to build hype ahead of its 30th May release.
Details are slowly being teased out, however, and Nintendo's recently been using its social media channels to show a little more of some new courses; naturally we've decided to put them all in one convenient place. Of the five shown so far three have been playable at press and expo events — Mario Circuit, Toad Harbour and Twisted Mansion. All three of those have gone down well with the Nintendo Life staffers that have taken them on.
Below are the Facebook posts that give a glimpse of these new tracks, including Sweet Sweet Canyon and Thwomp Ruins.
