The English translation: “In April 2014 Mario Kart 8 comes to Wii U! The transforming vehicles return in this title in HD, but the commitment to fun multiplayer increases with global integration in Miiverse and antigravity.”
Mario Kart 8 will feature the return of 12-player online competitive play, hang-gliders, underwater racing and motorbikes, while introducing new racing circuit designs and antigravity karts that will have players driving upside down.
Here’s the first Mario Kart 8 video from the E3 2013 showfloor. Enjoy! 😉
We’ll update once exact days in April are revealed for each region in the world.
