The newest instalment in the Mario Kart series looks like it is bringing back some old favorite elements from both Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 7. Back are the motorcycles, hang gliders, ability to go underwater, and the usual power ups. However, this time you can drive upside down and your vehicle can sport rockets and hover which makes for easier trajectory and smoother riding when your leaping over chasms and other atrocities trying to send you to your doom.
You will be able to drive up walls and on roads that turn upside-down.
The usual cast of characters appear to be back like Koopa troopa, Waluigi, Daisy, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Luigi, Peach, Mario, and probably others. There will be online functionality and the ability to communicate with others through Miiverse.There will also be video capture, four local player functionality, 12 player online, and car customization.
Mario Kart 8 has a launch date set for Spring 2014.
