More Mario Kart 8 Details; Plus New Screenshots
If I remember correctly – the Nico Nico event held during the weekend was sponsored by Nintendo and Mr Miyamoto. Then it comes at no surprise that Nintendo had a large presence in the event. I’ve been told that Nintendo held a Big Band concert which took the audience into a nostalgia trip. However, the Big Band concert was not the only thing Nintendo showcased at Nico Nico.
Nintendo took the opportunity to showcase Mario Kart 8 to the audience, and which was subsequently captured by a YouTube User Sawaramkds. Einselm Delphin (perhaps the biggest Nintendo Fan I know) has spotted a few details that should be noted. Firstly, in the video above, we can see the Lightning Item in action, which has been nerfed. Furthermore, as noted by Einselm two Bullet Bills can be appear at the same time. Lastly, Lakitu will turn you back around if you travel in the wrong direction for a prolonged period of time.
In addition to the extra information, a user has kindly put together if all the KNOWN customizable parts of Mario Kart 8.
