Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 8 is a kart racing game developed and published by Nintendo, and first released for the Wii U in May 2014. It retains Mario Kart series game mechanics, where players control Mario franchise characters in kart racing, collecting a variety of items to hinder opponents or gain advantages in the race. Mario Kart 8 introduces anti-gravity driving on walls or ceilings, and allows players to bump into each other for a short boost. It has single-player and multiplayer modes, including online via the Nintendo Network.
Mario Kart 8 was a critical and commercial success. Critics praised its new additions, tracks, graphics, gameplay, and orchestrated soundtrack, but criticized its limited battle mode. It is the best-selling Wii U game, with more than eight million copies sold worldwide. Nintendo continued to release patches and downloadable content, including additional characters, vehicles, and tracks, and support for Nintendo's Amiibo figurines.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, an enhanced version for the Nintendo Switch, was released in April 2017. It was also a success, with critics lauding the expansion of the battle mode, and became the best-selling Switch game.
