Like I said in our review a few weeks ago, Mario Kart 8 is pretty awesome. It wasn't perfect - why did you hamstring Battle Mode, Nintendo? - and it's not the best in the series, but I still love it.
I've been enjoying it for a few weeks now, while you finally get a chance to play it today. You may be trapped in class or at work, knowing that Mario Kart 8 is waiting for you just out of reach. Just counting down the hours until you can play it. While you're waiting, here's a short video showing off five of the best new tracks in the game.
Worry not, classic Mario Kart fans, we'll also have a video for the best remixed tracks in the game. There's some great ones in Mario Kart 8, even a few from our list of the best Mario Kart tracks of all-time. After you've played the hell out of it, if you want to comment on your favorite new or remixed tracks, you can do so below. Otherwise, I'll see you folks online!
