Nintendo UK has announced on Twitter that Mario Kart 8 will be one of the playable titles at this year’s Eurogamer Expo, also posting the above promotional picture for the game. Taking place in London from September 26th to September 29th, the Expo is one of Europe’s biggest games shows where companies demonstrate their latest material. The Eurogamer Expo will also feature tournaments and a large number of indie games.
Mario Kart 8 boasts new anti-gravity kart racing that allows players to race on walls and upside down, a feature that is supported by the Wii U’s HD graphics and processing power, since courses must be displayed quickly from several different camera angles. The game has been confirmed for an April 2014 release. Other Wii U titles on display at the Eurogamer Expo will be Bayonetta 2 and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
