Mario Kart 8 has broken cover, revealing a gorgeous Wii U debut for the beloved series. Alongside gliders, motorbikes and underwater sections, racers will now have the ability to defy gravity. That's right: walls and ceilings are now shortcuts to exploit.
Factor in some crisp visuals and it looks like Nintendo are onto an absolute blinder.
Christmas 2013 would be the perfect time for Mario Kart 8 to release, but sadly, it's out in Spring 2014 in one of the most hear-tearingly aggravatingly decisions I've seen in quite some time. For now, at least we have a trailer.
