About this item

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

  • The new antigravity feature allows for never-imagined racing circuit designs. Players will speed through courses and find themselves suddenly racing on walls in a hanted mansion or upside-down over Princess Peach's Castle as their wheels automatically rotate and shift into antigravity gear.
  • Mario Kart TV lets players share highlight videos they submitted to Miiverse.
  • 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-favorites Waluigi and Toadette re-join the cast of familiar characters from the Mushroom Kingdom.
  • Crisp HD graphics and a 60-frames-per-second frame rate offer players the most visually stunning entry in the series yet.
  • ESRB Rating: EVERYONE with Comic Mischief

Must Buy Game!!!

Warning: This game is highly addictive and can lead to dreams about drifting perfectly. It can also lead to dreams about being in first place and then getting hit by a blue shell only to lose the lead. The game can cause sleepless nights that can interfere with your normal lives. Mario Kart 8 is a MUST BUY GAME. It is really that simple...it is one of the few games that all ages and skill levels of gamers can enjoy. It is great for beginners yet challenging enough for veteran players. It is the first Mario Kart game in HD and boy is this game beautiful. Never before has karting looked this good. Visuals aside the racing is better than ever. The anti gravity adds so much to the experience that it feels refreshing in a franchise that is 22 years old. You can race up walls and even upside down, the animation is fluid and seamless. The anti gravity aspect also adds a bit of strategy in races since when in anti gravity mode bumping into your fellow racers gives you a speed boost. There were a few races where I was in second place but got the speed boost from the player in the lead and went on to win the race. The anti gravity aspect is just genius and very fun. The race tracks are amazing and so is the music. You get 16 remixed race tracks from all eras and 16 new, even the remixed tracks feel brand new because of the visuals and anti gravity sections. The music is excellent and matches the tracks very well. You will hear some familiar beats like Donkey Kong theme and Mario 3D World theme. The single player is great fun with three grand prix modes the 50cc,100cc, and 150cc. I started with 50cc just to get back in the groove and then business really picks up by the time you get to 150cc. I had a blast with the single player but the online multiplayer is SUPER FUN. There is worldwide and regional races and battle mode plus friends only online mode as well. The online was very fun and not once did I experience lag or any connection issues. The online will keep me busy for a long time. The battle mode has changed from arenas to redesigned race tracks. At first I was disappointed with this but the more I play the battle mode it has grown on me. The battle mode is meant to be a supplement to the racing anyway so I don't mind the change. Overall all I can say that GO BUY THIS GAME, and if you don't own a Wii U then GO BUY THE MARIO KART 8 WII U BUNDLE!!!!

This game is by far one of the best Mario Kart installments that I have played. Very fun and easy for beginners and challenging for the expert players. The graphics are superb and the character selection is great! I thought I would be a little disoriented from the tracks being inverted, but found it quite easy to follow. The new items are a great addition to the games and love the classic tracks they've selected. Have fun driving on the mobius strips!

My kids love this game! I like it too. It has awesome graphics. It's really cool that you can drive on the walls. It's easy to play once you get the hang of it. I love that more than 1 person can play. It's a fun game and I would highly recommend it!

  • A. no you don't need the wheel at all. the wheel turns into a challenge though, and if you want your kids to be on their feet while playing this will certainly do the trick.
