I’m classifying this as a rumor solely based on the fact that it hasn’t been announced anywhere other than Japan yet. According to the source, A Mario Kart 8 web app is being developed that will allow people to watch uploaded videos of Mario Kart 8 races, as well as check statuses of their friends. There’s no indication as to when this will launch, but considering Nintendo promised an official Miiverse app and so far all we have is an web page means that’s likely what we’ll see with this Mario Kart 8 “app” as well.
