We already knew that Mario Kart 8 is coming in May, now we have an exact release date. Nintendo has today announced during their Nintendo Direct live stream that Mario Kart 8 will be released on May 30th. We were hoping for something a little earlier in the month, but we’re glad to finally know the exact date that we’ll be able to shoot HD shells at our friends behinds.
Nintendo also posted a brand new trailer which you can see below. The new video shows previously unseen courses and characters, including the announcement of the Koopalings as playable characters.
Mario Kart 8 will be the first game in the series on Nintendo’s Wii U console, and it’s one of our most anticipated titles of 2014. It’s also the first time the series will make the jump to high definition graphics. Stay tuned for more Mario Kart 8 news on LootChaser!
