This May Day edition of the Wrap sees Nintendo releasing a bunch more info about Mario Kart 8 and the E3 happenings it has planned, some strange Amazing Spider-Man 2 happenings on Xbox One, and news about that time ET went to the dump.
In what’s possibly the final Nintendo Direct before the big E3 show in June, Nintendo outlined a pile of new info about Mario Kart 8. The company’s big game for the Summer (and maybe the rest of the year too), Mario Kart 8 is poised to be a monstrous title for fans of the series and the Nintendo faithful alike.
The presentation treated the game as such too, with outlines of everything from the courses to the music tracks. With the amount of attention that Nintendo is giving the latest in the Mario Kart series, it’s fairly obvious that the gaming giant is putting a heck of a lot behind this one.
It’s doubtful that they’re putting all their 2014 eggs in one basket though, as there’ll more than likely be some big surprises announced at E3. For right now though, this is the big one folks- and we have a full analysis of the Nintendo Direct that brought it to you right here.
