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!
