While Nintendo has yet to provide a definitive date for the release of its flagship title, Mario Kart 8, a retailer in the UK has identified April 25th as the date on which the game will become available. With Mario Kart Wii going down as one of Nintendo’s biggest selling games ever, anticipation for the latest game in the series cannot be underestimated.
The EAD Kyoto-developed Mario Kart 8 was prominently featured at the time of this year’s E3, with Nintendo unveiling the new feature of hover-powered karts in the game. Although Nintendo has not confirmed April 25th as the definitive date, a recent newsletter stated that the game would arrive sometime in April. Time will tell if the April 25th date proves to be true.
