Mario Kart 8 Gets a Release Date


I’m sure most of you folks that have been gaming for a few years are pretty excited for the arrival of the new Mario Kart and you have good reason. The game was announced over a year ago, but after a long wait we now have the official release date. 

Satoru Iwata announced that Mario Kart 8 would release on May 30th for the Wii U. The game will be introducing seven new characters to the game, but not new to the Mario universe, that’s right….. The KOOPA kids are BACK!! Iggy, Morton, Lemmy, Ludwig, Roy, Wendy, and yes, even Larry will be playable characters in the latest Mario Kart.

They will each have their own strengths and weaknesses that you will have to try and master while navigating the new tracks and dealing with homing shells some crazy plumber will be throwing at you. I can’t wait to jump back on the track!
