A little Nintendo with this gameplay video of Mario Kart 8, in 60 frames per seconds and 1080p to avoid losing details because of the wide framing.
Giggity, giggity, giggity, giggity.
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.
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....
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.
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.
this is the game that's gonna send wii u's flying of the shelfs!
Yep I agree
Just like: Pikmin 3 Wanderful 101 Monster Hunter 3 etc. http://imageshack.us/a/img2...
@Picture_Dancer Pikmin 3 is No.1 on the U.S. sales charts this week. So...yeah.
yes and imagine a price cut with it
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.
Not trying to troll but those graphics are cartoony compared to what Devs are now aiming for
Agreed but I think it fits well with Nintendo's characters since they all had that cartoony look for a long time. ;)
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?
HA! Thanks for the laughable comment Ripsta!
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*
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
Does anyone know if we can play this with a pro controller ?
Not sure but considering Mario Kart Wii used so many different controllers I say this should be no different.
yes Mario Kart 8 supports all Nintendo Controllers Wiimotes, Nunchuk, Wii Wheel, Classic Controller/Pro and Pro Controller.
Bur,But,But.....Wii u is weak and underpowered and can't do 60fps/1080p. Lol Edit: I was being sarcastic because of all the trolls who are always saying that wii u can't do 60fps/1080p.
the wiiu is indeed more powerful than we ever thought, glad i have one :) i also cannot wait for donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, look at my my avatar :)
Man this game looks awesome. See how crisp the details are and how smooth the game looks running at 60fps? Can't wait for this to release, next year can't come soon enough.
I'm yet to see a game on xbox1 ot ps4 this crisp,it looks pixar and no matter what you think when its in stores and people see its graphics the public will speak up and the truth will come out as always despite what fanboys say this is pixar quality and the general public will agree... Oh these demo's are 50cc,there going for a very fast mariokart like N64 days,and they have said the tracks are built for competitiveness unlike MK wii.
It's Nintendo we're talking about... this type of quality is expected!
gameplay, gfx, control, art style, sound, replay/addiction value nintendo is always class A
The Kart king is BACK! Please gaming GODS, let this game re-capture the N64/Double Dash fun that I had those many years back. I really hope Nintendo keeps this franchise going with DLC. I do not mind paying for extra tracks sometime down the road.
I love that screen they playing it on
IGN People's Choice. Look really good, can't wait to see how the more creative tracks look Hopefully I'll get a chance to play it at PAX, or at least see more stuff. This will sure to sell a few WiiU's
BUT IT'S ONLY A KART RACER - DON'T GET EXCITED ABOUT THAT 1080p/60fps CRAP! .... /s Seriously, I'm surprised I haven't seen more people blast a comment like that. This proves that with a little tweaking, and when put in the right hands, the Wii U can push out some really sweet looking games. When you see titles like: - Pikmin 3 - X - Bayonetta 2 - Trine 2 - Need for Speed: Most Wanted U - Mario Kart 8 - Wind Waker HD and - Rayman Legends ...One can't think that the Wii U is a slouch in the power division. I can't wait to see what more that devs, first and third-party can squeeze out as time goes on. With early titles looking as good as they do - imagine 2 years from now!
also DK DK DK DK :D
System seller right there!!!
We have heard this befeore: http://imageshack.us/a/img2...
