Mario Kart 8 – New Courses and Items Trailer
With Mario Kart 8 heading to Wii U soon, Nintendo has released a new trailer for the upcoming mascot kart racer. The trailer shows off new items to the series such as the Boomerang, a visually appealing Rainbow Road, and much more. Take a look below!
Super Mario Kart, the game that started the series, will be heading to Wii U Virtual Console this month, but there’s a little extra incentive to download it before Mario Kart 8 is released. For European owners, if you download the SNES classic, you’ll receive a £5.49 discount on Mario Kart 8. Both games must be downloaded to the same console in order to receive the discount.
Mario Kart 8 will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Wii U in multiple regions towards the end of May. A Limited Edition is available for pre-order, which includes a Blue Shell item along with the game, a keyring, as well as a Bullet Bill shirt. This deal is available only in Europe through Nintendo of UK’s online store at the moment, but we’ll be keeping an ear open for news on other regions having a chance at this Special Edition.
