Mario Kart 8 is an upcoming racing video game for the Wii U game console. It is part of the Mario Kart series. It will be released on May 30, 2014.[2]

The game will be like other Mario Kart games, where characters from the Mario series race each other in go-karts. Players will be able to use items from item boxes to keep their opponents from winning. Along with go-karts, the game will also have motorcycles. There will be 12 players in a race. Like in Mario Kart 7, karts will have hang-gliding attachments, and players will be able to drive underwater. For the first time in the series, players will be able to drive on walls and ceilings.[3] There will be two new types of vehicles: UFOs and four-wheel buggies.[4] There will be local and online multiplayer for up to 12 players.
