Dustin from Denkiphile: "Nintendo’s latest iteration of Mario Kart does the same thing it has been doing for the past 20 years and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Nintendo refined the series through each game, perfecting gameplay and overall experience, it definitely shows in the latest title of the series, Mario Kart 8. One of the main reasons someone would purchase a Nintendo system is well, for Nintendo games, which the Wii U has been lacking ever since launch and suffering because of it. A well known title such as Mario Kart is exactly what the Wii U needed to boost sales, bringing back both publishers and developers. I don’t believe this title alone will save the Wii U but it will definitively get the attention of a audience craving for a first party Nintendo game and yes, it was definitively worth the wait."
