'There's something charming about Mario Kart. It's one of those games that always puts a smile on people's faces. And Mario Kart 8 for Wii U is no different.
Mario Kart 8 had to be shown off at this year's E3 expo in Los Angeles California. Nintendo is trying to claw back some of the gravitas awarded to both Sony and Microsoft in light of the PS4 and Xbox One announcements. And the Nintendo title was more than shown off - a playable demo was on hand and Pocket-lint grabbed the giant Wii U Gamepad control and got stuck in.'
