Mario Kart 8
|Mario Kart 8|
|Developer(s)||Nintendo EAD Group No. 1|
|Release date(s)||May 2014|
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. There will be two new types of vehicles: UFOs and four-wheel buggies. There will be local and online multiplayer for up to 12 players.
