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.
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.
