Mario Kart 8 Runs At 60 FPS, Considered The "Definitive Mario Kart"

Nintendo World Report: ''In a Nintendo Developer Direct, Mario Kart 8 was called the "definitive Mario Kart." Many other details were revealed.

Like Mario Kart 7, 8 will run at 60 FPS (frames-per-second) and will feature extensive online multiplayer. This time, Miiverse is utilized to create tournaments where you can set specific rules and play with friends. Miiverse is also used to share replay data.''

Mario Kart Wii ran at 60fps and 1080p too, its just that you needed a PC to do that :P

It sure looks like the ultimate Mario kart.

mario Kart hasn't truly been a Mario Kart game since the N64 version. They made it too noob friendly and threw skill out of the window.

Considering how little they've changed with the last 3 or 4 installments (and what they have changed, mostly not good), they will have to do something significant for it to be the definitive installment.

Absolutely. Having quite possibly the best online community system in any online Nintendo game and removing snaking so inexperienced players actually have a shot at victory is SO terrible. /s

Oh, and kudos for the lack of vehicular transformations, customization and coin system acknowledgements.

As far as I'm concerned, Mario Kart 7 is the best in the franchise and it will take more than pretty graphics to beat that one.

I think Double Dash was my favorite, had more accessibility than 64 but wasn't the unpredictable nonsense known as Mario Kart wii.
