Nintendo’s Mario Kart franchise has been around for over two decades and has sold around 100 million copies since Super Mario Kart burst onto the scene in 1992. The upcoming Wii U exclusive Mario Kart 8 is the culmination of this long legacy and fans will expect it to be fine-tuned to perfection following its excellent predeccessor Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS.

Nintendo recently released a flashy new trailer for Mario Kart 8 showcasing the game’s colourful new courses and devastating range of power-ups. If you’re a fan of Super Mario 3D World’s vibrant graphics and excellent lighting effects then this trailer makes it clear that Mario Kart 8 will feature a similar level of visual fidelity to last year’s Wii U-exclusive platformer. Take a look below:

Mario Kart 8 will be released exclusively for Wii U on May 30th in North America and European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this highly anticipated kart racer.
