New Mario Kart 8 TV spots showcase tracks, Piranha Plant power-up

Written by: / / 1 Comment


Nintendo recently lifted the review embargo for Mario Kart 8 which demonstrates that the platform holder has full confidence in what is arguably the most important Wii U exclusive of the year. The publisher also continued its “Flippin’ Fun” marketing campaign with two new TV spots that join the trio of adverts released last week.

In these new ads we catch a glimpse of some of the wild and wacky courses on offer in the game and get to see the awesome Piranha Plant power-up which not only gobbles up your fellow racers but also gives you a speed boost in the process! 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 which includes our recent review.
