Transforming aspects looking good in HD.
As is indicated by the name, 'Mario Kart 8,' there have been quite a few 'Mario Kart' titles going all the way back to the Super Nintendo. (Eleven in all when counting the arcade titles.) With the 3DS 'Mario Kart 7,' the series took on a new life with new transforming elements, and 'Mario Kart 8' continues by incorporating a hover/anti-grav cart capability.
More importantly though, 'Mario Kart 8' for the Wii U will be the first console or handheld installment to feature HD graphics, which can hardly be considered just a bump when compared with homely 'Mario Kart Wii.' Nintendo's latest trailer shows off a 'Mario Kart' that fans old and new can be excited about.
