Mario Kart 8 is easily one of the most anticipated Wii U games this year, and judging by the various gameplay videos, the game will definitely be a must have title for any Wii U owner. Several new Mario Kart 8 gameplay videos show the upcoming racing game’s tracks, including Twisted Mansion, Mario Circuit, Toad Harbor, and many others.
Mario Kart 8 will ship with 26 confirmed tracks, 13 of which are brand new, and 13 of which are remakes of older Mario Kart tracks. Some of the old remakes includes Toad’s Turnpike, Royal Raceway, Grumble Volvano, and of course, the classic Rainbow Road (check out a neat comparison of the new vs the old Rainbow Road in the last video below).
Enjoy the videos below. Mario Kart 8 will be released on May 30, exclusively on Wii U.
