Mario Kart 8 announced for Wii U [UPDATE: Screens]

WiiU_MarioKart8_logo01_E3I know this will come as a big surprise for everyone, but Mario Kart 8 is indeed headed to the Wii U. Sarcasm aside, it looks like a pretty beefed-up version of the Mario Kart formula, with a host of new tricks up it’s sleeve. No idea on the full line-up of racers available, but the trailer depicts the usual suspects. It’s certainly the best looking Mario Kart we’ve seen yet.

Check out the reveal trailer included below, direct from Nintendo’s official YouTube page.

UPDATE: New Screens.
