Mario Kart 8 Races Onto Wii U On May 30th

by on February 14, 2014

Mario Kart 8 has been confirmed to hit Europe, North America and Australia on the 30th May.

While a tentative release date of May was announced last month, Nintendo have decided to push that to its extreme and release at right at the end of the month.

It looks like the Wii U schedule will be pretty barren after this month’s Donkey Kong, with no major titles slated for release between now and Mario Kart 8.

How depressing. On the plus side, there’s a cool new trailer for Mario Kart 8.

Some new characters have  been added  in the form of the koopalings. If you ever wanted to show Donkey Kong who’s boss as a tiny Bowser-esque minion, then your rather obscure and specific prayers have been answered in the trailer below.
