I used the search, did not find a topic.

 

Anyone with a Wii U.....or getting a Wii U for this game?

 

I bought one last month in anticipation of this game and a few more games coming down the pipeline.

Not sure why they aren't bringing this to 3ds being that device is struggling for games as well.


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

The 3ds isn't struggling, it has been selling rather well although lower than Nintendo's expectations. It is absolutely murdering the vita lol. Also they aren't bringing this to 3ds because the 3ds already has a mario kart game, and by making Mario Kart 8 exclusive to Wii U it entices people to buy the system for this game.

True, but I didn't mean the console was struggling I said it was struggling for games. The games that are good on the 3ds are few and far between. I suppose they are making it an exclusive to try and sell more wii u's but at the end of the day that console is dead and is no way gonna come back to life until Nintendo makes a major re-haul of how they run things.

http://www.ign.com/a...r-north-america

 

Nintendo has announced a Mario Kart 8 Wii U Deluxe bundle for North America. Featuring a 32GB Wii U, a copy of Mario Kart 8, a red racing wheel, a Wii Remote Plus, and the package will cost $330 on May 30.

Additionally, anyone who registers a copy of Mario Kart 8 on Club Nintendo before July 31, 2014 can redeem one free Wii U game from a selection of four.

Nintendo is offering a digital copy of Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros. U, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, or Wii Party U to Mario Kart 8 owners.

 

Really good deal. Cannot explain how excited for this game I am.

I want to pick-up the WiiU for Smash Bros and this game. But the one thing I fear is that the same thing will happen with my Wii purchase.. Play Smash Bros and Mario Kart for 3~5 months then sell the system again.

Pretty cool video to see the amount of detail/movement they do each frame for this game. A lot of things you may never even notice while you're playing it in real time.

Yeah but I don't think its worth dropping 200~ bones for a console just for mario kart + smash bros. I rather buy something else with that 200 bones but hey, different strokes for different folks.

Ah thanks for the heads up but I actually turned in my old consoles and got 40% more than normal from Gamestop which paid off the game in full for me (plus more).

 

Been playing for a couple of hours. It's [expletive]ing awesome. I have a PS4 and will probably get an Xbox One down the line one day but so far this is the most "next gen" title I've played and its on a console with way less power than Xbox or PS.

Yeah. I don't know if I could tell you to buy one simply for this game.....or any console for 1 game really. However, I think Kart combined with Smash this fall and the inevitable Zelda I'll be clocking a TON of hours into it and that may be enough to get you to invest in one. There also happens to be a few older titles now that have come out that I still need to play like Pikmin and I have barrely begun Donkey Kong.

 

As far as game play goes though I stand by what I said. I love my PS4 and I like the Xbox One also but out of all the games I've played so far this is the best experience I've had on a next gen console. It helps that Nintendo happens to make some GREAT software and they have a history for it.
