[Editor’s Note: As many in the comments have pointed out, this has since been confirmed by Nintendo from their conference roundup. Sorry about that!]
Much like the title of this article says, senior research analyst David Gibson tweeted some news on the upcoming Mario Kart 8 yesterday, he said the following;
Gamepad profile to be increased, Mario Kart 8 to be released in May, fast start up of Gamepad designed so can play without TV quickly.
This Twitter post came after Nintendo’s financial briefing.
Much speculation is going on about what is meant by ‘Gamepad profile to be increased’. Some people thinking it could be smaller and sleeker GamePads others believing it to be an increase of innovative ways in which the GamePad is used, either way we are going to see change (hopefully)!
