Nintendo is not doing the usual press conference but that didn’t stop them from announcing some games that people have been waiting for. Mario Kart 8 is coming to the Wii U and looks to have some new tricks up its sleeve. Check out the press release below and we’ll be updating with the trailer soon.
The newest installment of the gold-standard racing game introduces an anti-gravity feature that has karts racing up walls and clinging to inverted tracks. Elements from previous Mario Kart games have made their return, including gliders and motorbikes. The game will support online multiplayer and will have deep integration with Miiverse. The game is scheduled to launch in spring of 2014.
