Mario Kart 8 Announced for Wii U

Nintendo has announced Mario Kart 8 for Wii U at E3 2013! The video footage showed karts & bikes / motorcycles that can transform from wheels to hover, which allows them to ride on walls or even upside down, dive underwater, and fly in the air. The best collection of online multiplayer modes ever is promised.

Mario Kart 8: 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 the spring of 2014.
