VIDEO GAMES: Let the Blue Sparks Fly! Mario Kart 8

by

Nintendo is on a roll with all the announcements coming out of Nintendo Direct and E3. This time we get to see the next iteration of another classic Nintendo franchise, Mario Kart. Take the jump for the trailer.

It looks like Nintendo is bringing some of the bigger innovations from Mario Kart Wii (bikes and tricks) and Mario Kart 7 (gliders) over for the series jump to HD. And then the new gimmick, anti-gravity roads, riding on walls and ceilings. I’m not sure how exactly this will be implemented, but I am certain I want it. With no release date announced (not even a year) though, it may be awhile before we get to ride with Mario and friends again.
