A short time ago we posted a video of Nintendo's new TV spot for Mario Kart 8, which gives a humourous spin (no pun intended) to the game's use of anti-gravity.

Nintendo has now posted this video — along with two others — to its YouTube channel, and you can watch them in glorious HD quality below.

The most amusing has to be the Super Horn, a new item for the Wii U outing which can stop the hated blue shell dead in its tracks.

It's not long until Mario Kart 8 launches — are you looking forward to reading the official Nintendo Life verdict?
