Online gaming publication Eurogamer has confirmed that Mario Kart 8 runs at 1080p and a blistering 60 frames-per-second. The game maintains the resolution and the 60fps even in two player split screen, which is quite impressive. Mario Kart 8 is due for release exclusively on the Wii U on May 30th.
“You probably knew this bit already, but Mario Kart 8 is looking like another polished racer from Nintendo. The game’s visuals are beautiful, 1080p and 60fps even in two-player split-screen, while new characters and weapons such as the Piranha Plant keep things feeling fresh amongst otherwise familiar surroundings.”
