It appears many fans have gotten their hands on Mario Kart 8 early. The Mario Kart 8 community has been open for a while, but now it is alive and thriving. True to the community spirit - Miiverse users have been posting screenshots, YouTube videos and art.
However, for most fans there will be two or three more sleeps, before we are able to put the foot on the pedal. Until then, perhaps these gorgeous screenshot taken by Karter's around the world will be enough fight off those cravings.
