Description

For the first time in HD, Nintendo's Mario Kart franchise comes to the Wii U console, introducing new racing circuit designs and anti-gravity karts that will have players driving upside down. Players will also enjoy a variety of series-favourite features, including the return of 12-player online competitive play, hang-gliders, underwater racing, and motorbikes.

The anti-gravity feature allows for never-imagined racing circuit designs. Players will speed through courses and find themselves suddenly racing on walls in a haunted mansion or upside-down over Princess Peach's Castle as their wheels automatically rotate and shift into anti-gravity gear.

Mario Kart TV lets players share highlight videos they submitted to Miiverse. Crisp HD graphics and a 60-frames-per-second frame rate offer players the most visually stunning entry in the series yet.

Experience a wealth of features that span the series, including 12-player online competitive play. Elements first introduced in Mario Kart 7, such as hang gliders and underwater racing, along with elements introduced in Mario Kart Wii, such as motorbikes and performing tricks in midair, also make their return.

Fan-favourites Waluigi and Toadette re-join the cast of familiar characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, including returning characters such as Metal Mario, Lakitu, and Shy Guy.

This time around, take to the starting grid with Bowser's minions, with all available as playable characters for the first time ever. Will Iggy, Larry, Ludwig, Morton, Roy, and Wendy pip Mario and co to the podium?

Features:

  • Spin Turbo - While racing upside down or on walls, players can bump into other racers or certain course obstacles to get a speed boost. Spin Turbo fundamentally redefines the way that players compete, and makes anti-gravity racing even more exhilarating.
  • New items - Two new items join the fray in Mario Kart 8. First, the Piranha Plant attaches to the front of the player's kart and chomps at other characters, banana peels on the course, and even shells thrown by other characters. Each time the Piranha Plant lunges forward to bite, the player receives a brief boost of speed. The second new item is the Boomerang Flower. After acquiring it, racers can throw a boomerang at opponents to stun them, and its arc allows players to strike multiple opponents with a single toss. The boomerang can be thrown three times, forward or backwards.
  • New courses - Remixed classic courses make a return in Mario Kart 8, with favourites such as Moo Moo Meadows from Mario Kart Wii, Toad's Turnpike from Mario Kart 64, and Donut Plains from Super Mario Kart, among others. The graphics and layout of these courses have been redesigned and reimagined – for example, Toad's Turnpike now allows players to drive up certain walls in anti-gravity mode. The game will include 16 new courses and 16 remixed classic courses.
  • Live recorded music - For the first time in the Mario Kart series, select courses in Mario Kart 8 feature music recorded by live performers.
  • Control scheme - Mario Kart 8 supports a variety of control schemes including the Wii U GamePad, the Wii U Pro Controller, the Wii Wheel, and Wii Remote and Nunchuk. The game can also be played in off-TV mode using just the Wii U GamePad.

High Octane All Round Fun

Total :

This game is excellent, It's fast, it's fun and it is great to play alone or with friends. There are plenty of tracks to play and unlock, loads of characters to choose from and unlock, and loads of vehicles and customisations to play and unlock. This game feels great to play and controls like a dream. It feels like the most perfected form of Mario Kart yet and is quite possibly the strongest in a long line of what is already a strong series.

Another excellent mario kart game. The single player is fun and challenging but like all mario kart games the true fun is in the multiplayer. Nothing causes as much family competitiveness as Mario Kart. The new features keep it fresh and it is finally in the high definition quility that we have always dreamed of. Must buy for any wi u owner.

This is neither the most feature-rich (Double Dash), nor the most fun entry in the beloved series (lost to MK64, though coming close; probably due to nostalgia only) , but it definitely provides the most polished racing experience of all. If you can live without a proper "battle" mode, this one's for you.

One of the best games I have played. The graphics are some of the best I have ever seen in a game and playing online with no lag at all and a seamless search server is amazing. My only complaints would be that battle mode is no longer as good a minor issue and I do not often play it and the second is that the character roster is not too good.

Just amazing! It reminds me of Mario Kart 64 but with a whole bunch of new features, characters, vehicles, stages and, of course, fun. Definitely a 5 star game!

Great fun but not the best Mario Kart to date.

Total :

This Mario Kart 8 game is definitely gorgeous when played in HD, as well at its gameplay is near-flawless like always but then comes the problems such as Battle Mode is just normal racing tracks and that this in comparison to Double Dash doesn't feel as innovative as DD did. Disregarding that, it's still a highly addictive game to play and especially online! I bought this from Zavvi and I'm very happy with the purchase as well as the price of it!

Mario's Mustache in HD

If you love Mario Kart, then of course you'll love this game. The zero gravity is a funky feature and customisable karts keep things interesting. The weapon line up doesn't seem as good, though: when you're in 1st place you get little else other than coins. Regardless, this is a beautiful game.

Mario karting Ace

Once again Mario and the team are behind the wheel and ready to race. The tracks are full of fun and after a few races soon mastered. Not easy to win though, especially when you get to the 'mirrored'stage! You can play using any type of controller, so if you prefer the wheel then dig it out, but you can also use other controllers or just the wiiU pad. Fun to play alone but once you get bored of that grab some friends because then some fun can begin. It's hard to put down, sometimes easy, often 'oh no!' moments as you try and win each race. If you have enjoyed any Mario racing games before then you will love this one, if it's your first one, then your in for a ride of your life. Happy karting!
