Nintendo needs to market the crap out of Mario Kart 8

Nintendo needs to market the crap out of Mario Kart 8
Nintendo needs to market the crap out of Mario Kart 8 Wii U is in a pickle right now! Games! Games! And more games are needed to make the Wii U appealing. Though the Wii U currently has the best line-up out of the three new consoles – Nintendo has failed to release these sublime titles in a consistent and timely matter – consequently losing any momentum with the droughts. It will be a long grind for Wii U fans between Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8 – not only will we have a small amount of retail games to play – but we will no doubt have to put up with more ridiculous crap from haters. Nevertheless, Mario Kart 8 is shaping up to be one of the best Wii U game so far – perhaps when everything is said and done – the gravity defying racer might be recognized as one of the best game of this generation.

Speaking to IGN, Mario Kart 8 Director Kosuke Kobuki and Producer Hideki Konno hinted that there could be a system for cutomization. Kobuki explained that Mario Kart 8 will have the system present in MK7, but will have a little more. "There was some item customization in Mario Kart 7, in that you could choose to have a mushroom-only race or shell-only race. We're going to have that plus a little bit more, actually, in Mario Kart 8," Kobuki explained. He continued: "I think we're going to be ...
