One of Nintendo’s most anticipated titles of 2014, Mario Kart 8, will hit stores on May 30. This might be the jolt Nintendo’s Wii U needs to start selling consoles. Up until now, Nintendo has only hinted at a release month, and not a precise date, but now Mario Kart fans can mark their calendars. May 30 is still a long time to wait, but we’ve waited this long, so I think we’ll survive.
Mario Kart has been a huge franchise in the Mario universe, selling over 35 million units to date, Nintendo said in January. In addition the familiar cast of baby and adult characters, Mario Kart 8 will also feature Koopalings—those crazy Bowser followers that reign over the smaller castles in Mario games. That’s quite a few characters in all; combine that with the different vehicles, items and levels, and you’re looking at some incredible replayability.
Mario Kart 8 has long been one of our most anticipated titles of the year, Wii U or otherwise. If you don’t already own a Wii U, May 30 should give you plenty of time to start saving up for Nintendo’s latest console.
