Good news! You won't have to wait very long for Mario Kart 8 to be released. Once given a nebulous "Spring" release window, the title is now confirmed to be launching in May. Sure, that's not as good as, say, an actual release date, but it's better than nothing! Plus, Nintendo isn't doing great right now, and Mario Kart Wii sold, like, a zillion copies (or 34 million, if you care), so every little bit helps.
