Hands-On with Mario Kart 8 [Capsule Computers]

Andrew Day from Capsule Computers wrote:

The Mario Kart franchise is one of the best selling video game series of all time, with over 80 million copies sold over its long tenure. People are addicted to the family-friendly kart racer, and it is due in no small part to its consistent, yet always evolving formula. Mario Kart has always taken the extra step with each new installment, never being satisfied with resting on its laurels. With that in mind, I stepped up to the podium at this year’s EB Games Expo, and sped Mario down a racetrack to find out if the upcoming Mario Kart 8 for Wii U is worth the wait. (Mario Kart 8, Wii U)

Ok, I agree that Mario Kart 8 looks fantastic, but that took it a little too far.

It's difficult to save Wii U when all its (two) best games are preferably played with a pro controller. They really should've toned down the second screen thing.

Anyway, not to be negative though, Mario Kart 8 looks and sounds awesome.

man wish i was there for some hands on action. Hope they pick some good classic tracks.

I hope it will deliver a fresh new experience and not the same over and over again. I have played so many hours of MK, and totally love the series. Still the most fun Kart game recently was F1 Racestars imo, because it was not all about item rampage

From the little gameplay we've seen, it certainly looks different.

And those graphics.

They're incredibly impressive.

The craziest thing about this game is Nintendo has not showed a better build. Here is the best part when we saw Mario 3D world we were all thinking it looks boring an uninspiring then Nintendo hit us with a better build and we were all blown away. Mario Kart 8 looks this good now I am really waiting for a better demo to showcase the game.

I've spent so many hours of my life on the Mario Kart track. Looking forward to something with a wilder bent to it :)
