Mario Kart 8 is a racing game for the Wii U. It was first announced on the January 23rd, 2013 Nintendo Direct that a new installment in the Mario Kart franchise was in development. It was officially shown at the 2013 E3 Nintendo Direct as "Mario Kart 8".
A new gameplay mechanic for the game is Anti-Gravity. Other returning mechanics include bikes, tricks, and 12 player races from Mario Kart Wii and vehicle customization, underwater driving, and gliding from Mario Kart 7.

There are 32 tracks, consisting of 16 new tracks and 16 retro tracks, featuring one track each from Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart: Super Circuit, four tracks from Mario Kart 64, two each from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! and Mario Kart Wii, and three each from Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart 7. As with the retro tracks from the 3DS installment, the retro tracks in this game feature altered sections that incorporate the game's hang-glider, underwater, and anti-gravity features. The game features live-recorded music for all of the new tracks and most of the retro tracks. The tracks have been described as more narrow when compared to previous Mario Kart tracks, specifically those from Mario Kart Wii.
