This game looks next gen. That frame rate, the sharpness of visuals....this is next gen quality. Not on PS4 and XB1 level, or where they may end up, but for now this game looks awesome.

I love Mario Kart.

Yep1702d ago

Not sure what the unproven real world performance of the competitor systems have to do with this, but yeah, Mario Kart looks damn great any day. Can't wait for this game and Smash. I only pray my wallet with survive the upcoming beating.

This is the best looking Nextgen game,not xbox1 or ps4 quality ???? this site has you under a spell m8,open ur eyes this is amazing nextgen graphics at FULL HD 60fps,something i'm yet to see on xbox1 or ps4 m8....

SporadikStyles1701d ago

It does look fun and visual style is great, but not next gen at all. Sonic + Allstars racing transformed on my old CPU C2Duo E6600 2.4GHz with my GTX-650 looks way better than this, the Sonic game isn't next gen at all and is basically the 360 version running in a higher res with some effects on like AA and AF.

Although this is probably an incredible Mario Kart game, when next gen consoles drop Wii U will lose all credibility.

If games look better on my 5-6 yr old (can't remember) CPU with an entry level to mid range GPU than a system that hasn't been out for a year yet - Not cool

I'm not a Wii fan at all but wish Nintendo the best of luck, they're going to need it I think.

@SporadikStyles - Mario Kart Wii sold over 30 million copies. Name one Sony or MS title that came even close to that amount.

Mario Kart moves systems, plain and simple.

leahcim1701d ago

It´s not next-gen its ps3 quality, the thing is we always have seen mario kart on shitty LOW definition add HD and a little improve on the graphics and you have this results.

It really looks stunning,

Imagine MARIO GALAXY on HD, that would be amazing.

I was simply stating that eventually 3-4 years from now, Wii U won't be able to keep up with the best of the best graphical games that are on the XB1 & PS4.

As of right now, there isn't too much of a difference because dev's don't know how to fully utilize all the new tech available. Happens every gen.

This game does look beautiful and I care more about Art Style than HD graphics.

I'd much rather play a game with great 2D sprites, than some "realistic" open world grey and brown fest.

Yea once again, not sure everyone understood my comments. I apologize if I wasn't clear with my thoughts.

I'm not "blinded" by graphics, I still play SNES / N64 games/ GBA/ DS games and I love and prefer the 2D sprite and "cartoony" look of bright and beautiful games over anything "realistc".

What I'm saying is, given the specs, PS4/XB1 have 8 GB ram vs Wii U's 4.

Eventually they will be able to do things the Wii U can't in terms of art style and graphical capabilities.

Settle down people.

By the gods, this game looks amazing.

chente00251702d ago

this is the game that's gonna send wii u's flying of the shelfs!

Picture_Dancer1701d ago

Just like:
Pikmin 3
Wanderful 101
Monster Hunter 3

jcnba281701d ago

@Picture_Dancer Pikmin 3 is No.1 on the U.S. sales charts this week. So...yeah.

ape0071701d ago

yes and imagine a price cut with it

PopRocks3591701d ago

So why is Pikmin 3 crossed off when it helped with that supposed 79% increase in Wii U sales that VGChartz reported?

I'm not sure that picture holds much water presently.

Damn everytime I see Mario Kart 8 I realize that the world is lucky Nintendo took so long to get into the HD game. 1 Year later and they are making games that look better than some games coming out for the newer systems. 1 Year and this game looks better than some of other companies games and they have had a 7 year head start. Not trying to start a flame war but can we imagine if they had not waited so long.

Ripsta7th1702d ago

Not trying to troll but those graphics are cartoony compared to what Devs are now aiming for

LOL_WUT1702d ago

Agreed but I think it fits well with Nintendo's characters since they all had that cartoony look for a long time. ;)

bobacdigital1702d ago

I get what he is saying.. In Nintendos first try at HD they are making some pretty impressive stuff... Granted it is not Last of us ... but it took those devs what 5 to 6 years to get to that point?

marloc_x1702d ago

HA! Thanks for the laughable comment Ripsta!

chente00251702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

it doesn't matter if graphics are cartoony or realistic. it's the ability of the console to push 1080p/60fps!

@LOL_WUT Remember when you told me on another post that I was dilutional cause i said that almost all of wii u's 1rst party ips were confirmed to be 1080p/60fps? *Facepalm*

falcon971702d ago

Ben 10 is cartooney,this is stylized m8,what cartoons do u watch ???

Stylized graphics like this are nearly as hard to pull off as photo realism u idiot,look at Sony's and Sega's efforts with stylized graphics they look bland in comparison..

N4G full screen mode make it lags

-Foxtrot1702d ago

Does anyone know if we can play this with a pro controller ?

ZeekQuattro1702d ago

Not sure but considering Mario Kart Wii used so many different controllers I say this should be no different.

Misaka_x_Touma1702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

Mario Kart 8 supports all Nintendo Controllers
Wiimotes, Nunchuk, Wii Wheel, Classic Controller/Pro
and Pro Controller.
