Update – Mario Kart 8 release set for May


Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has announced that Mario Kart 8 will release for the Wii U this May. The tentative release (originally scheduled for early Spring) for the eighth iteration of the Mario Kart franchise was mentioned by Iwata during Nintendo’s investors briefing, which is currently taking place as of the writing of this post.

More as this story develops from the briefing.

[Update] – Iwata’s presentation slides have been posted at Nintendo’s Japanese website. On the second page, one slide shows the supposed final box art for Mario Kart 8.


Harrison Milfeld is a writer, editor, and freelance journalist from Missouri. Ever since he could walk, Harrison has been an avid fan of the world of Nintendo. For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.


  1. It should also be noted that May is being touted as the worldwide release. Can’t wait for some MK8!!

  2. Excellent day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
