Nintendo has surprised us by uploading a new unannounced Nintendo Direct to their YouTube channel this morning. The 36 minute Direct focuses on the release of Mario kart 8 and reveals the Mario Kart 8 bundle, as well as several new details about Mario Kart 8 including new items, Mario Kart TV, and a promotion for those who plan on buying the game on the day its released. We don’t want to spoil too much for you, so dig in and we’ll have a summary of the news up for those who want to read it. local_offer mario kart 8 Nintendo nintendo direct wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. jjbredesen HOLY SHIT! I don’t want to sound dramatic, but i love the way the new directs are turning out!! It looks fantastic and the direct was funny as shit 😀 https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/8133832960/h8CC0F559.jpg Ultrasyd Yeah, this direct was fun : ) And a good surprise. My son is so hyped 😀 The fact that you can upload directly to Youtube is great, they should do that for more games, and not particularly to Youtube. DragonSilths They didn’t say how long the clips will be to be able to upload. I bet its no more then 15 seconds. Just to upload a cool moment, or that moment were you snatched up victory. Nostalgic_Chaos I heard them say that it has voice chat when you’re in the lobby waiting for friends online, but I didn’t hear anything about voice chat in general when playing a worldwide match online or something. I hope it does, though. You know Nintendo… It might just be voice chat for a certain portion of the game. Not gonna get my hopes up though until it’s officially confirmed to have VC in-game while racing. TheWichi Im pretty sure is going to be for the lobby only Nostalgic_Chaos Well that would be a shame. I want to hear people rage when they fall off of the stage on Rainbow Road Robinpreet Sidhu If Mario Kart becomes Cod, I will strangle whoever thought to! Jk Lol! DragonSilths I heard no such thing about voice chat. Just that stupid text based sentence picking in the lobby. DragonSilths Online has NO voice chat. It has that pick a text sentence crap ONLY in the lobby. matt Nope sorry m8 wrong you can voice chat through GAMEPAD like MONSTERHUNTER WIIU and send them little pre determined texts like in MK wii so get your facts right kid…. DragonSilths 1st, yes I heard you can voice chat for 15 seconds while the game loads in the lobby, that is still sad and pathetic. Chatting WHILE racing is what was needed. 2nd, I’m 23 I’m no kid. You idiots need to learn a new insult. matt I’m 34 i was playing video games when you were like 5 years old so step off voice chat in lobby is fine if you don’t like it dont play the game simple go play mod nation racers on ps4 oh its not even worth making anymore ???? you can talk in lobby as long as its open m8 in custom races ect…. DragonSilths What does the PS4 have to do with anything? Either way my 18 years of supporting Nintendo has come to an end. The company can die in 50 years and I’ll dance and spit on their grave saying fucking deserved it bitch. You should have just listened. I am done with gaming, let Microsoft continue to take the lead in the industry and continue to kill the industry. Maybe, if a CANADIAN ONLY video game console is made, I’ll get that. lonewolf It has voice chat but only in the lobby well thats what they said on the direct. Haven’t you watched the direct? DragonSilths Yes I have watched it twice, I saw in the lobby picking sentences, I saw NO mention of voice chat, and even with voice chat being LOBBY only that’s pathetic. 15 seconds to talk while the game loads. lonewolf Well better to start with something than to not start at all. I guess they are just testing it that way no one will complain if it happens anything while playing the game. Probably future games will have voice chat in the game it self while playing it. ( j am just being optimistic). DragonSilths To little to late then. By then Nintendo wont have any fans left. lonewolf Is the voice chat that important I mean more important than awesome games and gameplay? DragonSilths Normally no, but its just one of the small little problems that adds up. There has just been so much shit from Nintendo these little things are amplified. But whatever I’m done with Nintendo. 18 long years of support, and I’m done. Those Miiverse admins are just sickening. So I quit gaming, I hate that i’ll miss Zelda and such, but I am not supporting Nintendo anymore. 1 day, 50 years from now after 10 more failed consoles they will finally die, and I will dance on their grave and say fucking deserved it, you should have fucking listened. Now Microsoft can ruin the industry. I doubt I’ll comment on this site anymore, I no longer care what Nintendo has to say about anything. In fact, I’m skipping E3 completely. matt Nintendo will bring a Fusion type console in 2016 with power8 tech and extreme graphics with 4k resolution Nintendo wont settle for 3rd place in sales so expect them to start changing the way they do things big time Iwata has said as much,Nintendo keep saying they can do what they want and i think that means more then 1 major home console on the market at the same time…….either way Nintendo are always planning their next move. DragonSilths No offence, but that’s the stupidest thing I have ever heard in my life. matt Remember you said it was stupid ?? matt Voice chat in BLACKOPS wiiu is in game and it puts u off end of…..all the idiots that can’t play properly just shout camper all the time its over rated i would much prefer to concentrate on the race then at the end have your rant much better concept… matt You get more than 15 seconds m8 your a bitter little fanboy why not piss off to a Sony site or something….. Mariokart 8 is the best nextgen game BY A HUGE MARGIN AND THAT IS FINAL. gerb1977 Now I just have to figure out which game I want for free I guess. Pikmen 3 or WWHD? Although the boys might want SMBU ScrewAttack Definitely wwhd. gerb1977 That is the direction I was leaning…..but I still have it for the cube ScrewAttack Same. I wasn’t too fussed about picking it up as it’s not a favourite zelda for me…..but chevk out the screen shots on this gaf thread http://m.neogaf.com/showthread.php?t=716795. It looks so beautiful! Enumerating Wishes I’d go for SMBU. It sounds like you have multiple kids and you could play with them too alongside MK8. Nintendo games are fun alone but even better together. incoherent1 I’d say Pikmin 3 actually. WWHD is $10 lower on MSRP, so it might be easier to pickup separately on the cheap. ScrewAttack Though- following on from my post below- this makes sense. Better to get the one that’ll hold its value longer, can always wait for the others. Nostalgic_Chaos If he has boys then it probably makes more sense to go with Super Mario Bros U as it has better multiplayer action. Nostalgic_Chaos SMBU if you’ve got kids. They can play together and have a lot of fun at the same time. It’s the more multi player focused game. CaptinnDaGameMaster! FREAKING HYPE. THE FREAKING HYPE. CharlotteTBrenner The 36 minute Direct focuses on the release of Mario kart 8 and reveals the Mario Kart 8 bundle, as well as several new details about Mario Kart 8 including new items, Mario Kart TV, and a promotion for those who plan on buying the game on the day its released. We don’t want to spoil too much for you, so dig in and we’ll have a summary of the news up for those who want to read it. http://sn.im/28v3ntg John Aguilera Here are the titles they are offering for free when you purchase & register your game at Nintendo Club by July 30th: Nintendo Land New Super Mario Bros. U Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Game & Wario Pikmin 3 The Wonderful 101 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Sonic Lost World Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Wii Party U incoherent1 Yep, this is Europe’s list. And for folks in North America, Nintendo of America’s list is Pikmin 3, Wii U Party, WWHD, and NSMBU (still an awesome list) John Aguilera Darn. I had a feeling that it was too good to be true for the US. I guess I’ll get Wii U Party since that’s the only one I don’t have. Nathan DeFalco Seriously thinking about selling my hard copy of Windwaker HD and taking that money to buy whatever the heck I want. Then download WW HD on June 1st. Vegeta937 That’s exactly what I told someone on another comment section to do when they were upset that they owned all the games on the list except Party U, and had no interest in it, even for free. I traded in Pikmin 3 ($35) a while back towards Mario Kart 8, so it’s nice to know I can get it again for free. Nathan DeFalco Yep, I’ve decided I’m selling my hardcopy of Windwaker so I can take that money and buy another game I want (and then redownloading Windwaker with the code). I don’t want those other games they’re offering. What I REALLY want is Injustice. So, for me, I get Mario Kart (for only $45 after the Best Buy discounted eshop card I bought awhile back plus DDP) and Injustice brand new. Damn, it feels good to be a gamer. Vegeta937 Not to mention, with the DDP, you’ll get the points for Mario Kart 8 and Wind Waker HD (a second time), which will net you two $5 promo codes for eshop credit. Win-win all around. Relick Thank god, I thought Europe weren’t even getting a list. Pikmin 3 for me it is! Bob Wilkerson Why does Europe get more games to choose from? I already have the 4 from the US list. Would have loved to use my code for W101 or something incoherent1 I wonder if you can sell your code on eBay… I don’t think download codes are linked to Nintendo ID accounts… Relick You can. simkenno Because you guys get EVERYTHING else 😛 Bob Wilkerson Lately Europe has been getting much better stuff than the US in terms of promos. I would love to have that blue shell collector item for my Nintendo collection that Europe got as well with MK8 Magnus Gonzalez they need to boost sales over there so I can’t fault them for that Bob Wilkerson Yeah I understand that.. If I didn’t already have all 4 of the US game offerings I probably wouldn’t care. Guess I will just give my code to my brother or something which only has SMB U. I think he plans on getting MK8 too for his son (and himself) so maybe I can get him to sign up for Club Nintendo and he can get two free games Magnus Gonzalez maybe sell one of your physical games and get its digital version as the free game and use the funds to buy something different? Kenshin0011 Very corny at some points, though this is one of the best directs I’ve seen because the amount of content and info was amazing! Dan Dang!!!!!! I just woke up and I have to go to school! I’m going to have to do schoolwork with this on my mind. I’m gonna watch it the moment I get home. Ducked Did they just tease red Wii U box art? This game looks freaking sweet. I have to say I’m much more anticipated than I was before. They finally confirmed a Wii U Bundle for North America. I hope this does sell Wii U’s and helps boost it up. Now Nintendo just needs to reveal more games, and show us that Yarn Yoshi and Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei are still in development. Ultrasyd I like the way it’s presented ! Quite funny. Europe has a choice of 10 games, that’s cool !! RandroidRampage Humanahumanahumanahumanahumana……. Nathan DeFalco What does Humana have to do with this? 😉 yunta_gohan Human female in spanish : Humana Mario Humanahumanahumanahumanahumanahumana…… Nostalgic_Chaos Personal review of the Direct: Overall, a great direct. Man, felt like a kid watching it. So much excitement. I know that a lot of people have complained so far about Pink Gold Peach, but I sort of like the idea, especially knowing that she’s a heavy weight. Nice to have another heavy weight female. I also like that it gives more attention to Peach as a character in general as she’s a Nintendo veteran and it’s nice to see her being pushed just that bit more to the forefront. Not too fussed about Baby Rosalina, but hey, I know fans will love the new addition, as some had already requested for her already. These new character reveals possibly indicate that there will be a few more secret characters of which we will not find out until we play the game ourselves, because I doubt they’ve told us all the characters yet. Nintendo enjoy surprising us. The new online features are awesome. Love how you can see the country flags by other players names in game while racing (Maybe that was in MK7? That’s the only MK instalment I never played.) They mentioned voice chat. However, in my opinion, it was pretty vague. They only mentoned voice chat in lobbies while waiting for friends, but didn’t mention anything about voice chat while racing in-game. I hope you can, though. Mario Kart TV and the Tournaments are a great addition too. Oh, and here’s a video from GameXplain talking about and showing the Battle Mode first hand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LewFJnRz_A Skelterz Is it just me or did they just declare war!!! This direct plus the smash Direct hopefully there’s a zelda one around the corner to i bet sony and microsoft are scratching there heads right now Miguel Angel Barrueta Hernánde Upload videos from mario kart tv to youtube! DragonSilths Yeah, 15 second clips of your epic moment where you get hit by a red shell… lonewolf From 15 seconds to 60 seconds but on mario kar tv you can upload the whole race. DragonSilths Proof? Where did you see this. lonewolf Gameexplain on youtube covered it. They said that they were at noa and played the game (noa invited them. DragonSilths Oh great, that fucking asshole. I cant stand Andre (Gamexplain) lonewolf Honestly I dont know who he is or who they are there at gameexplain and honestly I dont even care I go to that channel only to watch exclusive videos from that channel for the wii u or just nintendo stuff. So here it is the video http://youtu.be/4LewFJnRz_A DragonSilths Nope, I quit Nintendo. Fuck them and everything about them. matt You can upload a full race it was confirmed…..if you didn’t know that it’s because your in denial oh the Mariokart8 app looks mint watching videos on the go checking world rankings ect…. Miguel Angel Barrueta Hernánde exactly! isnt it amazing! Vinicius Finally I will be able to get Pikmin 3! *-* Alexander Kleinwechter awsome direct overall, kinda weird sometimes, but i like it xD just the only thing i kinda got dissapointed about was the character Metal peach, they could have replaced her with a new or a popular character like funky kong, bowser Jr, dry bowser or dry bones, but its not a huge deal, I really like the gravity new drifting mechanic when you bump into someone else you get a speed boosts, thats really neat, looking forward to the game, but i dont think sweden will have the mario kart 8 nintendo club offer, Wich is kinda dissapointing. Rinslowe That was fantastic. May is going to be a loong month. Joel Good god!!! loved this one soooo much. I’ve been waiting for pikmin 3 to go down in price…..

Still, trying to sell prescription drugs illegally to people on a video game website makes you a scumbag. thedeciderU gtfo Link00 If this game doesn’t create console sales i don’t know what will. I’m so hyped for this game! Plus free pikmin 3 😀 thedeciderU i’ve wanted to try pikmin 3 since august! Leo Pikmin 3 is phenomenal! It was a really great surprise last year! I absolutely love it! thedeciderU sweeeeeeeeeeet Razo_E Pikmin 3 is an AMAZING game. I own 3 out of 4 of those games, so I’ll be getting Wii Party U! yaaay. matt Its already creating console sales in the UK…. Suraj Alexander Some bit of the direct seemed unprofessional but loved the overall structure of the direct. Nostalgic_Chaos The live orchestra part was one of the best moments in the direct in my opinion. So amazing actually watching them play the instruments. Sometimes it’s easy to take for granted and forget how much overall work goes into these games. Suraj Alexander My thoughts exactly! jhell this game online is awesome Reginald Bullock Im happy they announced the mario kart bundle but what about the limited edition blue shell bundle? I hope they announce that Andre R i think its more fun not knowing what to expect of a game before its release. i think this kind of information is hurting nintendo more than helping them. remember the days when the news only could be read in the papers, where you could only see one or two pictures of a game, and read a little about the game. and that was it. you fantasize how the game will look like, and how it will play. that is real hype in the brain. you cant wait till it gets out. i feel that they are naging about the games, over and over. i am not sure if iam going to buy it anymore.. its the same for watch dogs, i was really hyped, then it got delayed, and more videos was out. now its not so interesting anymore.. Nostalgic_Chaos But the Wii U needs the hype because of obvious reasons. Sounds like you’re making an excuse. Maybe you just didn’t want to buy Mario Kart anyway, because anyone in their right mind would not turn down this game for such reasons. A new Mario Kart is made on a home console every several years. Not a couple of years. Several. So any amount of previews they show is not going to take the excitement from anyone anyway. %98 of people seem to be praising the little tasters that Nintendo have been teasing us with of the game. If you don’t want to buy it, then it’s completely your own loss. Not Nintendo’s. Despite Nintendo’s previous mistakes, no one in their right frame of mind would turn down Mario Kart 8. Andre R i really want mario kart. Nostalgic_Chaos Do you own a Wii U already? Mario Yes. steveb944 Welcome to the 21st century, where companies can reach their customers directly. No one made you watch the videos, and you could’ve just skipped on any and all news for upcoming titles in order to not ruin your surprise. companyoflosers ehhh the corny parts are very cringeworthy to me. i wish they would stick to letting someone from nintendo talk about everything like reggie or iwata. thedeciderU i am sick of iwata. i’m glad they tried something new and if they keep it up they should only improve in quality. i was glad iwata only showed himself briefly. companyoflosers ya, but maybe something less corny? i have no problem with a little skit as long as they dont make it childish or fill it with horrible voice acting and cringe worthy dialog. thedeciderU i’m convinced it was supposed to be mocking western tv and voiceovers. though i see your point – some of it was a little too much. i’m just glad it wasn’t the same boring ass presentation style they’ve cranked out at most directs for the last year and a half. Gabe Hoffman Holy crap Rainbow Road is amazing! matt Rainbow road look very futuristic and cool wow and with it being at No2 on Amazon UK already wow……it’s going to sell consoles through the roof… steveb944 Best. Nintendo. Direct. Ever! Andre R the woman who talks about the cars , sounds pathetic Diaz She’s just busy being beautiful. Nostalgic_Chaos Lol thedeciderU it was weird, but i think she did it on purpose to poke fun at real home shopping networks. definitely my least favorite part. Sycamore Still no Dry Bones? Hmmmmm I guess I can be Koopa. ZeldaFan83 I will be extremely sad and disappointed if they took out dry bones as a playable character. He has his own freaking level Bones Dry Desert. wiimenonowiiu Wow best nintendo direct so far Victor Marques Nice direct, but damn, not even direct are properly announced anymore, what is up with nintendo marketing? Jeremy Great direct, and the game looks stunning. Nintendo needs to come up with a good MK8 commercial and air it on the big networks (Not just Nic, disney ect..) And anyone that says the game does not look stunning is crazy, it looks like they put a ton of research,design into the game. The 30th can’t come soon enough! nin-10-doughfan have tears in my eyes while watching it! so happy ^o^! SpareChnge Should I create my Mario Kart 8 YouTube Channel now? nin-10-doughfan my body is so ready! DoctorWily “It ain’t over ’til the fat koopa sings… we’re looking at you Wendy” LMAO Xero Azure One Does not Simply “Beat” SMB2: The Lost Levels >:( SpareChnge And that meme is where? Oh here it is: Xero Azure lol Officer Raichu BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEST EVAH!!!!!!!@!!@! Leo Mario Kart 8 really is in another league of gaming design, it looks unbelievably gorgeous and fun! O_o Sleepyhun Will the register and get zelda free promo be available in eu too? Magnus Gonzalez actually a lot more offered in EU with this deal than NA Sleepyhun I already have the machine so the bundles are out for me, im only interested in the added bonuses to the game. Magnus Gonzalez yeah, if you buy the game and register on Club Nintendo you get a free DL of several games. Nintendo Land New Super Mario Bros. U Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Game & Wario Pikmin 3 The Wonderful 101 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Sonic Lost World Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Wii Party U MarkyWiiU Am I the only one here who’s sad because they already have all the games available for the promo code? ZeldaFan83 No. I am also disappointed that they don’t have more games to choose from. I guess I can download one of the games just to have a digital copy even though I own a physical copy of all those games. MarkyWiiU I taught about doing that but.. It would only take more memory in the console. Mario Umm… This came out of nowhere. O-O TheBoldman67 Wind Waker or Pikmin 3? decisions, decisions… Mario That’s a hard choice. Mario Finally! They created an item that can destroy those evil blue shells! bizzy gie My profound thoughts: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Qubonic The blue shells ended friendships back in the day. NOT NOW!!!! MetroidZero Not as bad as stealing a friend’s star in Mario Party. >:D Officer Raichu AUDREY WAS IN IT SHE WAS THERE http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-sCUt20FhVPo/UulN-6hcbBI/AAAAAAAAFgE/aYMvEMCymSk/s1600/fangirl1.gif kali Half asses( Voice Chat) might as well just play offline since it will feel te same not being able to joke around with my friends. Sylux This direct was much more entertaing then any other I have seen so far. GJ Nintendo. Keep it up like that, even I am a little hyped for MK8 now 🙂 WolfgangAmadeusMozart The following piece was featured in this direct http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASeax-zxPKI Logan Wayman Here’s an idea! If there’s Mario Kart TV, why not Smash Bros. TV? Smash Bros. TV, as you probably figured out, would record highlights of a fight. Juilen Cardenas fnuvsakltbjkrl. OMG. Let me first say the idea for this direct was really smart and funny. Im really glad nintendo added all of these online features. I MEAN UPLOAD DIRECTLY TO YOUTUBE!!! YESSSSS! This game looks so beautiful. DragonSilths I know I am in the minority here but seriously. ABSOLUTLEY TERRIBLE DIRECT. 3/10. While the info was decent, the presentation itself was so horrible it was cringe worthy. I was soo uber hyped for the game, and this direct literally killed half my hype for the game, I don’t know if I even want the game anymore. I might just say fuck it, I’ll continue on with the drought. Game Chat isn’t even fucking game chat, its picking a sentence to say what the fuck its 2014 Nintendo wake the fuck up we aren’t kids in grade one here. Also no limited edition in North America great job on that one. Then Iwata was in this Direct…fuck off Iwata, the Smash Bros direct was great cause you weren’t in it. The Reggie Fils-a-mech was great cause no Iwata. Iwata you suck, just leave. Thank god for the tournament mode at least that was a bit of good news. And the Super Horn, I like it mostly…I don’t like how its a get out of jail free from the blue shell. I love the blue shell so it will ruin that part. Either way if people enjoyed the Direct that’s fine, that’s your choice. But for me this was a pathetic Direct and the worst one in a while. The Smash Direct was so much better. I don’t even want my Wii U anymore. Not cause of games. Cause I still want Smash and ZELDA!!!!!!! But because of Nintendo being a fucking brain dead, brain cell lacking ape that cant make up their damn minds about anything. Oh and that cheap poke at us when the guy said “Nintendo is listening to us?” Fuck that, what a lie. When I see Starfox I’ll believe they are listening to us. Sorry for the long ass rant, but seriously I am not in a good mood from that direct. Oh yeah, Pink Gold Peach…that’s totally pointless literally the same exact character as peach just pink and gold…Dry Bones was a better pick. Baby Rosalina I have no problem with though. Magnus Gonzalez minority? maybe like the only one lol. That might have been the best Direct they have ever done…seriously. DragonSilths Actually all my real life friends who are Nintendo fans felt the same way. When they told me they hated the direct I was like wow me to, thought I was the only one. Magnus Gonzalez sure buddy DragonSilths I just realized I’m talking to you…a well known troll. lonewolf It was made to be like that comical DragonSilths There is being good cheesy and corny and bad cheesy and corny, this was bad cheesy and corny. lonewolf For some yss for some not it all comes to tastes. 🙂 Adam Howell Urg, I get such a horrible internet connection where I’m living. :S Constant pauses through directs. ZeldaFan83 The woman who explains the details of how the online features will work sounds like Audrey Drake who used to work at IGN and now works for Nintendo. I think she works at Nintendo Treehouse. She had a small part in a previous Direct, she was in an elevator with Bill from Treehouse, its the Nintendo Direct from 11.13.2013 uPadWatcher It’s because she IS Audrey Drake, ZeldaFan83. It’s great to hear her voice and Nintendo of America needs to add more airtime for her in future Nintendo Direct episodes. ZeldaFan83 Yeah I thought it sounded like her. She did a great job when she was at IGN, she was my favorite IGN Nintendo koopaling. I do hope they use her in more directs and Nintendo related events. matt Mariokart 8 is sat at No2 in UK charts right now…..enough said its also one of the biggest trends on facebook worldwide…. Someone Cool Looks great and can’t wait to get it. Feels just like that time I waited for the Wii to launch. I guess I’ll have to drag out the old cryogenic pod again. Stephen Davis Yep Nintendo is pulling out all the stops! Very Impressive. I liked it alot!! Better than even the Sony or Microsoft 2013 E3 playthroughs. Nintendo is back!! Love it 😛 Cubester_64 My science senses are TINGLING!
