The headline says it all. It’s new footage of Mario Kart 8, but with a slight caveat. Captured with some over the shoulder, shaky cam action, nevertheless it’s still new footage of this highly anticipated game. If you look closely, you’ll also notice the Gamepad and Wiimote/steering wheel combo are the controllers of choice in this demonstration. local_offer gameplay mario kart 8 Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when BIG Franky CAN’T WAIT. BIG Franky WANT. jjbredesen Hypeness level is OVER 9000!! http://images.wikia.com/bloodbrothersgame/images/d/dd/618px-Over_9000_Vector_by_Vernacular.jpg Alan Michael Hensley funny thing about that…it was mis-translated, it was suppose to be over 8000, so my childhood was ruined :'( jjbredesen Dam japanese people must think that we are idiots 🙁 DK_Hadouken The line is still great. Daniel Gonzalez This is one of the few games I’m looking forward to. That and Smash Bros. This will be fun in multiplayer with a few friends at home and online. Fred I’m normally a multiplayer guy (which explains why I’m a Nintendo guy), but in the case of Mario Kart, I loved 64 and Double Dash, but Wii and 7 cheat too much for the guys in the back I don’t mind some but let’s be real. I do however strongly recommend Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed if you want a Wii U Racing game. That is a very well done very fun game!!! As for the game I’m most looking forward to, there’s no question it’s X! Daniel Gonzalez I have Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed. I do agree, it’s an awesome game and still play it to this day. Josiah Parsons I had forgotten just how pretty this game is… Nintedward It’s one of the best looking next gen games so on Wiiu , PS4,Xbox one if you ask me. It looks stunning and it gives you the perfect idea of the sorts of things Nintendo and other will be able to pull off with the Wiiu visually! Super hyped for this game. Daniel Gonzalez I don’t know about better graphically, not to me at least. I do agree it does look great is certainly one of the best games I’ve seen on the Wii U visually. I’m just glad that there’s a game that can definitely get behind. Nintedward ”It’s one of the best looking next gen games on Wiiu , PS4,Xbox one if you ask me.” That’t not just my fanboy bias, I actually think this is one of the best looking games out of all the games announced for PS4 Xbone and Wiiu. Sorry if you don’t agree. Daniel Gonzalez Why be sorry? I’m fine if you disagree. You were honest and respectful about it. 😛 dforce79 Well, at least it’s an improvement over the last gen. And hey, you and I both know that the fun factor is more important than the visuals (though Killzone sure does look pretty and Second Son as well as Mario Kart 8). I can stand behind this like you can, not because of visuals, but the fun I know I and most will have (thank the gods for Nintendo realizing online is a good thing for Mario Kart). I do have to say it is nice to see Nintendo games in HD. Killed me when such excellent games for the Wii did not have that HD crispness. HD TVs do not translate SD visuals well. ShilaquilOneal This is the same build that was available at the last E3. It was one of the most impressive games in terms of graphics and even gameplay. Conan O’Brien had a blast with it. GermGerm Current Gen 🙂 Nintedward Xbox 360, Wii , PS3 , DS , PSP Xbox one, Wiiu, PS4, 3DS, PS Vita Oh and 1+1=2 and a Potato is in fact a Potato. GermGerm ….? Xbox 360, wii, ps3 were last generation now. We are now on the current generation which is wii u, Xbox one and PlayStation 4. Haha I wasn’t trying to be rude I was just stating a fact…. I was totally in agreement with your comment, as I usually am! bizzy gie Incorrect. A potato is a bird. This is third grade bro. Still agree with you even if you need to go back to school. 🙂 DK_Hadouken Which makes me wonder how good Shin’en’s game is going to look. Josiah Parsons Can’t wait! *jumps up and down a few times* Will (ishigum) FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DRIFT!!! Simon Stevens I am gonna kick my son’s ass on this game 😀 he always beats me on Nintendoland but never will he beat me on Mario Kart! Justagamer Same here..Id love to see my two sons try to beat me at mario cart Nin1986 I have both a 14/10 year old. You know there are games where I sit there and say to myself “god I’m getting old, they’re whooping on me” but then I pop in Kart Wii/Kart ds/Kart 3ds and all is well with the world. I guess I’m a bad father not letting them win, but whatever…Can’t wait for this, loved the Wii wheel too so I can only assume game pad would give me same feeling when playing. jjbredesen Dam my dad doesent even know what mario kart is… Justagamer I know right but time flys when you’re having fun Wosty My father acts as though he is the best at Mario Kart even thought he typically gets last of the four of us playing. He always uses the excuse “they cheated me.” It cracks me up every time! Eduardo Stand your ground dude lets show this new gen what we can do. Daniel Gonzalez New gen consoles? Or fans? Lol. ThisGuy18 ‘ ThisGuy18 I’m honestly and genuinely curious as to why you always feel the need to correct someone’s grammatical mistakes x) Not trying to start anything just curious. I mean, everybody else knows what he’s trying to to say. Nobody’s trying to pass an English test here lol I mean whatever it’s a forum, do wutcha want. Is it ok if i ask tho? I’m dying to know xD Daniel Gonzalez I get what he’s saying, but a little clarification never hurts anyone, now does it? I’m genuinely curious as to why you even asked such a question? It goes both ways here. Also, where did I question his grammar? Lol. I think you’ve misread there. It was rather simple, I was asking if he meant next gen consoles, or did he mean next gen fans. It was a fair question to me, so I don’t see the big deal. Now you know, but don’t die over it. No hard feelings. 🙂 ThisGuy18 Well people can ask questions if their curious just like you did right? Maybe I’d like some clarification too lol it just sounded like you were trying to correct him his all cuz i see it happen in a bunch of other posts lol so forgive me if i thought this was the same deal 🙂 Daniel Gonzalez Bunch of other posts of other users? Or do you mean mine? Cause I don’t often correct people let alone talk about their grammar. That’s a rare thing from I. In any case, it doesn’t matter. In my opinion, whether you’re honestly asking, or just trying to cause a ruckus, I’d suggest kindly moving along. Unless you’re talking about video games, I’m not interested. ThisGuy18 Lol calm down nobody’s trying to cause a ruckus. And i did mean to say “a lot of your other posts,” my bad xD no reason to be defensive. (And don’t expect anyone to “kindly move along” when you tell them to whether you’re trying to be condescending or not like seriously lol) capitalism1023 You sure do have a short memory don’t you? You were just talking smack about my grammar in another post because I didn’t use paragraphs. Dude, go find something else to do with your life instead of being a PuertoRican English teacher on a video game site. Seriously, you’ve been arguing for three days now with multiple people on multiple posts. Why don’t you go play video games or something? Eduardo new gen of fans.. Of course.. Justagamer That’s not new..I played that level at the best buy event back in june..:( Joey Not to those who have not seen it yet… Justagamer True but Not new to me Pikachief I’m sure there’s still old footage of this same thing. Just because some havent seen it yet doesn’t make it new footage :/ Nintendoplaystation How does this game look so good Razo_E Give me a nunchuck any day. i can’t stand steering without resistance or feedback. uPadWatcher This Spring 2014– I’M BUYING IT!!!! Mozellergodt I just now, bought a Wii U 🙂 Nintendoro Well done !!! Welcome aboard !!! Shota add me: shonenjump Jamborlee Game looks so delicious, can’t wait for it. P.S. Wow these guys suck… DRIFT YA SCALLYWAGS! My turn my turn! New players please ;3 -Sent from my Wii U Browser. Daniel Gonzalez You’re not going to cook it, are you? 😛 Yesung Sohn i’m soo hyped for this game!! Luckily i have a wii u! Nintendoro Is it just me or is this game really looking pure next gen? Daniel Gonzalez It varies depending on who you’re talking to. I don’t think it matters which gen personally. It looks good and that’s what should matter to you. capitalism1023 How about he decides what matters to him? The game does look next gen and anybody who has a brain can see that. Getting a life should matter to you. capitalism1023 Yeah it does, the lighting effects and textures are top notch. Can’t wait for this to come out. DarkLegacy Glad I have my Wii U. I need this game! Zorpix Not very many racers. Hope that’s just a test build. Shota no worries. it’s a beta demo Zorpix good :3 Justin Ordoñez Looks fun. I wonder if the kart behaves differently (steering wise) when it’s hovering and if you have to adjust your driving style for it. That would be a fun challenge. darkcreap This video has been taken in Spain. They are speaking Spanish with Spanish accent. It is such a small world. GameBoy1979 It’s awesome to see what the U can truly do…and to think, this is only the beginning of its’ second year on the market. Despite the delays in games, I’m glad that the BIG N takes their time & does games the proper way & makes them the absolute best that they can possibly be. As frustrating as it can be to have to wait, it’s also very refreshing to buy from a company that puts creativity, game play, & the consumers of its’ product at the forefront. derty These guys r obviously noobs and it’s the same crap we hav already seen. They need to show some pros play this game to really show what this game can do >:D NintendoNoob Love the game, only wish I’d be the one playing. I am pretty good at Mario Kart and being fast in it Gameonfool same old Super Mattio Welcome back Mario Kart!!!! If it plays as good as the SNES original, I’ll be very happy! Have they done away with the horrendous Blue shell?? Pikachief It’s basically a staple of the series since N64 forward. I doubt it’ll ever go away. DragonSilths Would have thought with 2 Players playing on 1 Wii U there wouldn’t be Spiltscreen…thought we were done with that? Player 1 should play on the Gamepad, Player 2 gets the full TV… Mario i think that’s optional dude. They just didn’t play it that way. DragonSilths Hope so. Pikachief It’s not an option on the demo stations. I’m sure they’ll have the option though… I mean how could they miss out on the opportunity for 5 player local mario kart!? Nintenjoe82 It’s already my game of 2014. Also makesme wonder how amazing a new F-Zero could be. Alexander Kleinwechter I was expecting new footage of a new course, but i guess this is ok, its a mario kart game, so i know they are gonna be awsome! Justagamer To the haters 10/10…Nuff said oontz Who is this Nuff? Is it an imaginary friend? What did Nuff say exactly? It’s interesting you really don’t talk like you’re in your late 40’s… hmmm Justagamer Meh! None of you’re concern! Justagamer It’s a saying man and im old enough..Been gaming longer than most on this site oontz just poking fun… no need to get out of your rocker and chase me off your lawn. Justagamer Sorry was just joking but i did get AC4 for the PS4 and it looks cool oontz better then AC3? Justagamer To a point yes but the gameplay is awesome Ryushi I’m so happy with this game how they kinda combined F-ZERO and Mario Kart, y’know the anti-gravity stuff/ PS4/WiiU This isn’t new game footage -_- I saw this race track gameplay longtime ago on youtube I even played it at an event Justagamer So did i and it was awesome PS4/WiiU Yeah, I even got a year of luigi medal and a Mario kart race flag BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!!! Troy I just hope you can use a regular controller, this whole waving our arms everywhere is getting silly Daniel Gonzalez It’s best played with the Wii Wheel from the looks of it. From my experiences, it worked great for Mario Kart Wii. capitalism1023 Actually when I played the demo at best buy during E3 the the gamepad was the best control option in my opinion, and yes I used the Wii wheel too. Wrong again bro. lonewolf88 they already confirmed that u can use regular controls threw gameplay but why not add motion controls they worked great for mario kart wii and people loved it. capitalism1023 Don’t worry you can use a regular controller, I used the gamepad for the best buy demo during e3 so I imagine they’ll include pro controller support. MississaugaMaverick ya you can don’t worry Lord Carlisle Looking forward to this game. I don’t see any sort of universal mic chat happening with it, though I think you should have the option to use said feature with people on your friend list. atl hawks boo, this is the same e3 gameplay 🙁 Michael Ngo Not watching them drift was so painful =/ Adrian Without the music it kind of is lackluster. And not a fan of motion Control driving! I hope there is a thumbstick option! MississaugaMaverick ya don’t worry there’s a thumbstick option. i’m also not a fan of the whole motion controlled driving. iLoveXojo How is this “new” when it’s the same crap from E3? I was excited to finally see brand new footage. Wii U Daily is starting to suck. Shota Mark Hearn. He lives under a rock i think starwars360 Oh Mark what wrong with you? Another writer came up with incorrect article before also it is same footage show in E3 2013!!!! LopsidedPasta I’ve waited since E3 to see this footage (or any footage really). I’m almost as excited for this game as I am for Smash Bros. I can’t wait. Old School This is pathetic! When are they finally going to show NEW footage? Plus you have the most noob players Also show battle mode!! Not everyone like VS, Nintendo don’t ruin battle mode like you did in MK7 oontz wiiudaily… a little more worse with every article. fireheartis1 Wow even though Mario Kart Wii is amazingly fun, this looks like it’s going to be a freaking blast. It also proves that the Wii U is way more powerful than current gen, but well all know that the haters will keep lying about the power of the Wii U though. Too bad it wont hit this holiday, but oh well I can’t believe that it’s almost here in 2014 anyways. Rocky I hope we could choose between motion and non-motion control. I prefer non motion; too tired to move around in the morning and after work. alex toschi Have neither of these men heard of drifting? Good lord that was some sloppy driving. Rick van der Linde Not to mention the bad start, the fact that Yoshi didn’t keep his; green shield, red shield, banana, etc. behind him, no tricks on ramps… Conclusion: I need this game. alex toschi Agreed haha it does look great, I hope we don’t have to use motion controls though. Matski Hmm, so does this mean you can only play as Waluigi on the stupid motorbike? I’m hoping we can customize the karts and whatnot like in Mario Kart 7 lonewolf88 its a demo not the full game lol it will be like mario kart wii there will most likely be medium small and large vehicles me personnaly hope everyone gets one exclusive care and then the meduim large and small karts. lonewolf88 you guys know what i love about the gameplay? is it shows how much fun there havin 😛 Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog LOVE IT ALREADY!!! ENDOT123 i need this game like now Wiiluigi I am pumped!!!! Need this now!!! William Cole I keep doubting Nintendo and they always tell me “no, don’t do that, and here’s why”. josh I’ll buy a wii u after smash bros and mario kart come out. Just not this year.
