According to a report from WonderCon posted on reddit, Mario Kart 8 is going to receive a playable demo soon.
Why would a booth chick be privy to this information? I don't think so.
Maybe she is a Nintendo fangirl and asked Nintendo representative that in response he said something that he should not and shouldt she be under NDA in a way?
She might have heard it from a guy who heard it from another guy who might work a bit higher up at Nintendo. Would be nice, but it seems unlikely it's true. Nintendo's almost never done demos for their first party games.
Because she has boooooooobiiiesss! Noob!!!
Boom! Dis bitsh be lyin she just wants attention! lol jk!
I would never play a demo of a game I KNOW I'm going to get Day 1. It would ruin the initial experience. I understand this for people on the fence about maybe buying a Wii U though.
Ppl would be stupid to buy a wiiU for just a demo tho lol
Nowhere in the article does it states that this woman is specifically a booth babe. It just said it's one of Nintendo's representatives in the booth. Could mean anything, dude.
She was one of the people manning the demo stations, telling you about the game and how to play and whatnot. She had the same Nintendo shirt like all the other Nintendo reps at the booth. Not sure why she would go around telling everyone this just for the hell of it. I figured that she was told to tell people this by a manager. Guess we'll see though.
I am kind of doubting it, but who knows. Have you guys noticed, how stingy Nintendo is, about demoing their own games on e-shop? I guess they do not feel they need to, but I disagree. Although they did give us Free Online play with Wii Sports a couple of weeks ago.
Didn't Wii Sports Club come out like a month or two ago? Anyway, they definitely are stingy with demos and it's because they feel most people won't need them to appeal. First party Sony and Microsoft games typically run the same boat. Those are the games people want on those consoles, so why waste resources on a demo? At least that's what I think they're thinking.
Agreed, and yeah Wii Sports Club came out a couple of months ago. It is free, but if you want to play online it is like 9 dollars to purchase each game for unlimited online play.
More than 3 tracks ? Noway when then prob. 1 or 2 tracks
I made that post. She told me and seemed to be telling everyone, when they were done playing the demo that a new demo will be downloadable on the Wii U that features more than the 3 tracks that I had played there. I figured that this is what her manager told her to tell everyone when they were done. Sounded pretty damn awesome to me, but yeah I am still a little skeptical myself. I really hope she was right.
Don't suppose that demo offers any online features? Or is it strictly single player/local multiplayer?
The demo I played was only local 2 player racing. I didn't hear much at all about the (hopefully) upcoming demo except that it's supposed to be downloadable on the wii u, comes out before the full game, and supposed to have more than 3 tracks.
Who cares, the system needs a defibrillator not a demo.
>OldDude >>Defibrillator Heheheh
Okay, you made me laugh... good one )
Sweet... will be sharpening the skills if that is true. It is funny. Most nintendo games don't need demos because they are that good. Mk8 time is coming!
Someone else was told the same thing ... http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Coincidence? I think not...
I would go through all my uses of the demo before it's released.
Okay, if this is true, ADD IT TO THE ESHOP ALREADY. Waiting for Mario Kart 8 is painful. D:
I don't think they'd release until May at the earliest.
I highly doubt there will be a demo for MK8. That being said if I am wrong and there is a demo I will download it as soon as it hits the e-shop to hone my skills. Either way getting the full game day 1. So demo or no demo I'll be playing MK8 soon
I'd download it in a heartbeat if made available. I know the game is just around the corner but all this hype is making the wait that much harder.
Cool if true.
Hope so, because a taster would get me hooked on a pre-order.
