Online retailer NewEgg currently has Mario Kart 8 up for pre-order. [Unlike my EB Games…]
The interesting thing is that the description says that gamers will be able to customise their vehicles and build their own tracks in the game. [What? Customize our Karts yeah we know but make our own tracks? YES PLEASE]
This hasn’t been confirmed by Nintendo, but if this is true then it’s a more than welcome addition to the Mario Kart franchise. They said the following.
“Mario Kart 8 Wii U is a new game for the Wii U. It features new elements such as customizing bikes and designing your own tracks. It is the sequel to the game Mario Kart 7.”
Now if this is true then HURRAY!!! But I doubt it, this makes to much sense to do and Nintendo doesn’t do what makes sense lol. Although with games like Mario 3D World and such we learned new stuff closer to launch. So it is possible in the May Direct before the game launches they could reveal this.
Update: Seems they edited their page and removed that bit?
