Mario Kart 8 Peddles Its Way Onto Wii U in April 2014

on June 30, 2013 3:05 PM

During E3’s Nintendo Direct presentation we caught our first glimpse of Mario Kart 8 and it was revealed the game would be available in Spring 2014, missing the holiday season but leaving Wii U gamers with Pikmin 3Super Mario 3D World, and a plethora of others to buy. Since then, there’s been no specific date or month given for its release. However, a newsletter from Nintendo of Europe has seemingly gave a more precise release window by claiming the game will be released April 2014.

While Mario Kart 8 is the eleventh installment of the franchise, it is the series’ big leap into high definition and it features the majority of the gameplay elements found in previous titles, with the return of the bikes from Mario Kart Wii and the gliders from Mario Kart 7. What also makes this game so unique is the use of anti-gravity which will give gamers the ability to drive up and down walls.
