    Review: Mario Kart 8

    Developer: Nintendo Publisher: Nintendo Platform: Wii U Release Date: May 30, 2014 ESRB: E for Everyone Mario Kart is one of the oldest, most lauded, and best-selling multiplayer experiences ever in gaming; you'd be hard-pressed to find a gamer who hasn't played at least title in the series and enjoyed it with friends at some point in their life. And yet it feels as if the series has been stuck in a rut with the same traditional gameplay for years, with nothing too major shaking it up. Now, after the brilliance of SEGA's Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Mario Kart 8 has a lot to live up to as it attempts to bring something new through its anti-gravity mechanic. Is it enough to propel the series forward in a meaningful way, or this still the same old Mario Kart? Let's not beat around the bush here—Mario Kart 8 is fantastic, and in many ways it is still classic Mario Kart, but that's a good thing. While not a radical departure, the game's biggest new hook, anti-gravity, does add enough new oomph to the gameplay to keep things interesting this time around. At certain points around the tracks, there are certain blue markers that will activate a kart's anti-gravity functionality, which will have wheels turning sidewise and the kart floating, Back to the Future 2-style. Essentially, this opens up radically different courses where tracks may twist and turn in ways that weren't possible in previous games, leading to some fantastic set pieces. Mario Circuit, for example, showcases this right off the bat, with the whole track twisting up into the air, around, and ultimately going upside-down and every which way. Other courses showcase other crazy new uses for this new feature in unique ways like Shy Guy Falls, which has you literally racing up a waterfall on the side of a mountain and then back down another one that's adjacent to it. Water Park features giant loops combined with underwater sections, and Dolphin Shoals is another great level that acts as a mix of a beach and underwater level, complete with riding on the back of a giant eel at a certain point. It really must be said that Mario Kart 8 has some of the best new courses the series has ever seen, and while not all are top-notch, many are bound to be classics that fans will really grow to love. Speaking of courses, there are two sets of four cups in each of the game's main modes (Grand Prix, Time Trials, VS Race). The first set represents Mario Kart 8's wholly original new courses, and the second set is made up of retro tracks from previous games in the series, culminating in some 32 tracks all together. Overall, there's a great selection of retro tracks, ranging from Toad's Turnpike (Mario 64), Donut Plains 3 (Super Mario Kart), and Wario Stadium (Mario Kart DS) among others that were great to see recreated in crisp HD graphics. What's a little disappointing is the lack of tracks from certain games, however; Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart: Super Circuit only get representation through one track each, while Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart DS, and Mario Kart 7 all get three each (with Mario Kart: Double Dash and Mario Kart Wii each getting two). Battle mode is handled a little bit strangely this time around. Instead of mixing it up in arena-type areas, you'll duke it out on the standard courses from Grand Prix. This isn't necessarily terrible, but it is strange considering that it's easy to lose track of your opponents since the courses are so large, especially if you're only playing against 2-4 people. The standard racing tracks don't quite lend themselves to Battle Mode's furious and sometimes tactical gameplay, though playing on them still works. One can only hope that the traditional, smaller arena levels will be added in as DLC (that would be free, ideally) later on. There are a number of new characters as well, with 30 to choose from overall (at least half need to be unlocked). All seven of the Koopalings make their first appearance in the series, and both Shy Guy and Lakitu make their console debut here. Slightly disappointing is the inclusion of at least five baby characters (five!), including the newly added Baby Rosalina; I can't help but feel that their slots could have been better served going to other unique characters that are missing this time around, like Dry Bones or even Birdo. Still, Mario Kart 8 offers the most number of playable characters to date, which is nice to see. Other new additions include weapons like the Pirahna Plant, which gives you boosts while it also snaps at other players in the immediate vicinity; a Boomerang, a long-range projectile that, of course, returns to you for another use; Crazy 8, which gives you all items in a circle at once; and the Super Horn, which emits a shockwave, damaging other nearby karts. You'll also unlock stamps to use on Miiverse when playing with different characters. Also new are highlight reels that you can view, share, and even edit after each race, showing the best and most exciting moments from each race. And in a first for any Nintendo game, players with Google accounts can also upload these highlight reels directly to Youtube from the game, which is pretty nifty to see. Of course, another huge new feature of the game is the ability to play online with up to 12 other people in one race. You'll have the option of choosing between playing with people through modes like Worldwide, Regional, and through Friends. And like in Mario Golf: World Tour, Mario Kart 8 allows players to create tournaments that they can dispense to friends and others by means of a specific code or by searching through active tournaments going on. I had the chance to test out the online with another friend, and suffice it to say that it works superbly; there was no lag to be had whatsoever the whole time we played. When it comes to pure graphical power, this is hands-down the best looking game Nintendo has released to date; this is no exaggeration either. The character models and tracks all look superb, with the former looking—dare I say it—near-Pixar quality, and beautifully rendered. What you see in the trailers is actually what you get in the game, and the amount of detail in each environment compared to previous games is staggering. Mario Kart 8 could very well be one of the best looking games of this current new generation so far and that in and of itself is pretty exciting. Its soundtrack is also full of some great new tunes that will no doubt get stuck in your head after awhile, in addition to some great new arrangements of retro track themes as well. Simply put, Mario Kart 8 is the most exciting game in the series to date, and perhaps the best Mario Kart game ever. The addition of anti-gravity and other new enhancements along with a bevy of great courses (new and old) and superb online play make this a must-own game for any Wii U owner, and a definite system-seller for those who don't own one yet. Not only does it set the bar for Wii U graphics, but its updated gameplay and flawless online multiplayer make it the kart racing game to beat right now. If you've been itching to get back into the series or have never played any of the Mario Kart games before, there's never been a better time to dive in. Pros + Anti-gravity changes gameplay up in a new, meaningful way + New courses are well-designed and exciting to play through + Plenty of levels and unlockable content to keep you busy + Online multiplayer is superb Cons - Battle Mode using traditional racetracks just isn't the same - Inclusion of too many baby characters; would have been nice to get different, unique characters in their place. Overall Score: 9 (out of 10) Fantastic Mario Kart 8 is the most exciting kart-racing game in some time and easily the best in the Mario Kart series to date. This game is a must-own for all Wii U owners. Disclosure: This game was reviewed using downloadable Wii U code provide by Nintendo.
  24. During a special Wii U Direct that was broadcast today, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata bombarded us with official announcements for upcoming Wii U titles. Of these announcements were a few that didn't have any kind of footage as of yet, but are still exciting nonetheless. First up, Nintendo officially announced a new 3D Super Mario game for Wii U that they have in development. The Nintendo EAD Tokyo Software Development team that brought us Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 for Wii and Super Mario 3D Land for 3DS will be working on this new Super Mario experience as well. And while there was no footage to show of this new Mario during the Wii U Direct, nor were we given a release window of any kind, Iwata assured us that the game will be playable at this year's E3. On the topic of Mario, Nintendo also announced their plans for an official Mario Kart title in development for Wii U. Not much was revealed of this upcoming kart racer, but Iwata did say that, like the new Super Mario game, Mario Kart Wii U (not the official title) will be in playable form this Summer at E3. Iwata turned the floor over to Eiji Aonuma to give us some official details regarding the much-anticipated Wii U Legend of Zelda title. Much like the above announcements, this new Zelda game has zero footage at the moment, with no release date in sight, as the game is still in early development stages (they need time after Skyward Sword, so be patient!). Aonuma did provide some interesting insight of what to expect from Link's new adventure, however: "Our mission in developing this new Zelda game for Wii U is quite plainly to rethink the conventions of Zelda. I'm referring to things like the expectation that the player is supposed to complete dungeons in a certain order, or that you're supposed to play by yourself. The things that we've come to take for granted recently. We want to set aside these 'conventions', get back to basics and create a newborn Zelda game so that the players today can best enjoy the real essence of the franchise. We had actually worked on this kind of challenge with Skyward Sword but we weren't able to put effort into changing the linear-path structure of the game. I hope to be able to talk to you in more detail about how it will change after I see it come together a bit more." Which of these games are you most looking forward to?

    New 3DS XL Bundle Includes Mario Kart 7

    Are you one of the people out there still lusting for a 3DS? What about simply wanting to upgrade your current 3DS for a lager screen? It's not as if gamers aren't starved for choice as to what version and color of the system they want, but Nintendo has just announced a new holiday bundle for their 3DS XL in North America. First off, the 3DS XL included is blue/black and comes with a copy of Mario Kart 7 installed on it. As such, there is presumably no game cart or case inside, but just the data ready to go on the handheld. This bundle is going to be available for a limited time (through the holiday season) once it arrives on December 2nd. If you're interested, the bundle is set to cost $200. In comparison, just buying a 3DS XL by itself also costs $200. While the bundle may be limited, the blue/black system isn't. That dual color scheme, along with the red/black one, both arrived earlier in the year and are still available. If you're interested in Mario Kart and like blue systems though then this looks like the bundle to grab.
