New Mario Kart 8 Trailer Appears

Take a look at two new courses in the game, as well as a new kart.

One new locations is an airport – inside the concourse as well as out on the tarmac – and the other is a cloud-top course using the kart's gliders. You can also see the title's new buggy kart.

The game is scheduled to come out for the console sometime in the spring of 2014.

  • Looks like some classic MarioKart fun, with a solid release window. I'm excited to see all the improvements MarioKart 7 made in a console version with it's own improvements.
  • Here's the Wii U's big seller, even though I'm not a racing fan. While others will probably jump on me in a rage induced pile, the last Kart game I enjoyed was for the SNES.
  • It feels like it's taking forever for this game to come out!
  • What do you collect coins for?
  • Bout time, this should have been a Wii U launch title. Nintendo seems to be doing as little as possible to make the Wii U a success.
  • WOW... That looks like soo much fun!

  • I know it's silly because it's a generic airport-level, but I can't help but think of the Modern Warfare 2 map with a similar layout lol. Love the trailer, can't wait to get this.
  • This makes me wish I had a Wii U.
  • Graphically, looks very impressive. Gameplay wise, it looks like the solid Kart gameplay we've come to know and love. I look forward to playing this game in the near future.

  • I played this game 10 years ago, it was called Arctic Thunder.
  • That made me smile laugh and remember WY i love gaming so much. Now that's 'next gen haha. The game's looking beautiful, good job Nintendo ^_^

  • This looks like loads of fun! Typical Mario kart mayhem, with new additions to the gameplay. Nice.
  • Very interested in this game when it first was announced. Seeing the improved graphics and new additions to the game makes it all the more worth while.

  • mario kart is fun, but the type of racing game that i crave is more along the lines of f1, forza, gt, haha
  • Rosalina is everywhere now.
  • Ahhhh mario kart...oh how i enjoyed so many nites making my friends swear as i beat them over and over on the N64 as teens. Be fun to play this with them and reminisce a bit.
  • Im hoping this has good online play like the wii had.
  • Mod

    I would say I'm excited for it, but I'm honestly having way too much fun with Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed. And Mario's voice sounded way off, did Charles Martinet voice him or just didn't get into the character much?

  • Every time I'm driving and see a bad driver, I get the urge to drive in front of them and drop a banana. Thanks Mario kart. Also, this is the one game my brothers and I play every weekend (Mario kart Wii), and never get sick of. Also,.... Peach rules. Yoshi sucks. ( its a rival thing between my brother ).

  • Now this looks crazy fun. This is the Nintendo I love. Now... if only the video game stars would align and give us a new Metroid, Castlevania, and Starfox.
