Mario Kart 8 Hands-on Preview | GodisaGeek

Tom Regan: "The first thing that was apparent when I got my hands on Mario Kart 8 was the most obvious new addition – its HD visuals. As Super Mario 3D World proved last year, Nintendo’s amazing art direction benefits greatly from high definition, and the tracks and character models in Mario Kart 8 are oozing with detail and charm in a way that the series simply never has before. Yet gameplay is still king with Nintendo, and the second you get behind the wheel, you realize it not only looks great but – running at an effortless 60fps – Mario kart 8 feels great too." (Mario Kart 8, Wii U)

30fps multiplayer and only 4 players locally is a little disappointing. Everything else sounds pretty damn good though!

Apparently according to destructoid it runs at 60fps with local 2 player. it's only 3 or 4 player local player matches that get capped at 30.

Yes indeed. 4x 60fps would be great, but yes, at least 2 player 60fps is going to be good!

The visuals of the rainbow colored track are amazing, but other than that the game looks a tad uninspiring. Hopefully it's fun to play.
