Item Description

A True Work of Kart:
The most anticipated game that will bring number of new features is here in Mario Kart 8. With improved graphics and support for the Wii U gamepad, Mario Kart 8 will surely take kart-racing one step further. Introduced in the 8th iteration are new online play modes, new racing circuit designs and anti-gravity karts that will allow players to drive upside down.

Extensive gameplay:
Join the troop with the return of 12-player online competitive play, a new gliding mode, underwater racing and motorbikes. Also, in 2-player mode, screens will now split down the middle vertically instead of the horizontal split that seen in previous titles. Players also have the power to create a 30-second highlight reel of the race and let players share their racing highlights in Miiverse.

Ready, Get Set, Go. Vroom!:
Mario Kart 8 will run at 60 frames per second, even with two players. Play the game with the Wii U GamePad, Wii Remote and Nunchuk, Wii U Pro Controller, and the Wii Wheel. Take on the Rainbow Road, the loopiest and craziest racing track ever made. Vroom!

Mario Kart 8 is a beast: with great track design, plenty of characters, karts, bikes and power ups is the best Mario Kart of all time. Also thanks to revamped online modes and some gorgeous graphics, is the single reason you need to own a Wii U.

Race Without Limits
I finally got my hands on this game after such a long wait, I usually buy NTSC region consoles/games when it comes to Nintendo but for the Wii U I did the opposite so I can get the rest of the Wii U games along with Mario KArt 8 early & 2nd reason why I chose it in PAL region cause is wht my country uses since I can find Wii/Wii U games very easily compare to the U.S region, enough with that on the with game, imho Mario Kart 8 is so much better than Mario Kart Wii in everything, gameplay, graphics, online, controls are very smooth & fast, I've been playing it non stop I ever since I bought it on the 28th of May, & almost 100% the game, got all the characters just need to finish 100cc & 150cc/mirror 3 stars then I'm done with game, overall, Mario Kart 8 is the best Mario Kart game to date, gotta give it to Nintendo for making such an AWESOME racing game for the Wii U.
