Out for a drive

In keeping with previous entries in the series, Mario Kart 8 resurrects popular tracks from past games. These are far from being lazy upgrades, though — many have been retooled to take advantage of the game's anti-gravity focus, and all of them naturally benefit from a luscious HD lick of paint.

In the video below, intrepid Nintendo Life editor Thomas "Speed Demon" Whitehead dons his rather fetching racing leathers to show off five classic circuits:

  • Mario Circuit (GBA)
  • Wario Stadium (DS)
  • Royal Raceway (N64)
  • Grumble Volcano (Wii)
  • Rainbow Road (N64)
