Pre-orders for Mario Kart 8 are Now Open!

Mario Kart 8 pre-orders are finally open at select retailers.

Another highly anticipated Mario Kart game is expected to make its debut sometime in the spring of 2014. And today Amazon and Best Buy have both opened up pre-orders for the game at $59.99.

About Mario Kart 8

The game brings back many familiar elements found in all Mario Kart games but also brings new features. 

In an interview with Gamekult, Hideki Konno and Kosuke Yabuki revealed that tracks would be narrower than Mario Kart 7 because people are more used to the Wii Wheel. Also kart customization will be back with a few new features such as changing the tires or the body type. Influenced by Mario Galaxy the main new feature in Mario Kart 8 will be the anti-gravity, which will make racing interesting to say the least.

Mario Kart was my childhood

Mario Kart will always be in the heart of anyone born before 1992 and I can pretty much guarantee that this latest version of the game we all love will be great! I haven’t played a Mario Kart game that I didn’t love and it will always be a constant in my gaming library.

Which is your favorite Mario Kart game ever?
