Vipsoccermaster On May - 29 - 2014

The day everyone has been waiting for, has finally arrived! After 1.5 years since the launch of Wii U in November 2012, Mario has finally started to get the engines going for Kart racing! Available now in retail or digital download, a price of $59.99 is well worth the investment of securing Mario Kart 8! Get racing to unlock content and race to the top against your friends online! We at Mario Party Legacy also want to see your biggest highlights of Mario Kart 8 for Mario Kart TV!

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Are you getting a retail version or downloading NOW?

UPDATE: $59.99 too much for you? Buy it at Fry’s Electronics for only $49.99! Deal lasts until Thursday, June 5, 2014! Only in the United States!

    • Mr. Sushi

      Lol that’s why I’m going with retail xD

      • GameGuy5

        Took from 12:00am to around 1:00pm to download… THAT’S 13 HOURS. My internet sucks. :p

        And I’m probably getting that free game tomorrow… Which also has to download… Dang.

        • KinopioToad

          You think that’s bad? Try using a dial-up modem connection.

    • malltam123

      You must have horrible connection, because mine only took 50 minutes total before I was playing it

  • SuperZambezi

    Downloading now too. Mine is 30 more minutes. :S

  • maltam123

    This is taking much longer to download than I had hoped. Gonna be about 50 minutes when its done

    • maltam123

      I’m at 20 minutes now

  • Psych

    Curse you downloaders! I’ve reserved a physical copy so I have to wait till 5 PM EST.

  • SuperAj3

    Worldwide!??? There’s still another 9 hours left before Australia gets it…

    • http://www.mariopartylegacy.com/ Vipsoccermaster

      I’m not doing another post for a region that’s not out yet. It’s close enough to warrant a worldwide release.

      • SuperAj3

        We’ve been forgotten! Haha, I’m just kidding, that’s alright. I just wanted to pick up on it, because we get it a day later for some obscene reason.

  • WaluigiStarman32

    retail version is always better to me.

  • Braystar

    SOOOO CLOSE TO GETTING DIS!

  • RLWilliams3D

  • Mr. Sushi

    Yay! I’m getting it after school!

    • King of Red Gorillas

      Me too I’m so happy :DDDD

    • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

      same!

  • Person McPerson

    Upvote this if ur going to get this the 1st day it releases into your country!

    • Bowser498

      Yay, just about to get the game! :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

      • Bowser498

        Just got the game and it’s AWESOME! :)

        • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

          i really like rainbow road now!!!

          • Bowser498

            I really wish it had 3 sections, not 3 laps, but I like the new RR. :)

      • Person McPerson

        love ur new profile pic. bowser looks beast. oh wait he already is.

        • Bowser498

          Thanks! I didn’t know what to do with my favorite Mario Character. :)

        • Bowser498

          Obviously, Bowser is BEAST! :)

          • DryBowser9999

            I wish the kart he’s driving in that picture was in MK8.

          • Bowser498

            That would be crazy! (Crazy bad for Bowser lol…)

          • DryBowser9999

            Roy or Morton in a miniature version of the car would be pretty sick too.

          • Bowser498

            I think that car would only work well with Bowser… If it were a vehicle combo for the whole game, then it would fit well for Roy or Morton.

    • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

      How about i up vote and reply!

  • Sea Slug and Wagashi

    60 bucks!?!?!?!?!?! Not even in my wildest dreams. :/

    • http://www.mariopartylegacy.com/ Vipsoccermaster

      Then buy it at Fry’s, lol. That is, if you’re in the United States.

      • Sea Slug and Wagashi

        I would, but I live in the wrong country. Oh well…

    • SmashBrosChamp

      I know right are games always gonna cost this much now , there just trying to rob us of our money

      • Sea Slug and Wagashi

        These games are so pricey I just don’t have enough in my wallet. I guess I’ll just have to wait until E3 and if no games interest me, I’ll try and go for this one.

  • Lots of Lilian

    Got this, and this game really is amazing! My favourite courses have to be Cloudtop Cruise and Toad Harbour. And Larry’s pretty damn awesome, I gotta admit!

  • garroldjgansun

    I will propably get it near 5:00 pm :( . As long as I get it today though.

  • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

    I love this game so much!!!!!!!BTW Rainbow Road is sooooo hard!!!!!! the turns are extremely complex

  • CuriousUser

    Bingo, Oh ho ho ho. Recently bought Mario Kart 8 today, and Pre-Ordered 4 Games (1 Wii U, 3 3DS). The first sentence tells you the Character I shall be Using.

    • DryBowser9999

      Bingo…hmm…I can only think of Toad / Toadette.

      • CuriousUser

        Is from the first Mario Kart to have Voice Acting that quote.

        • DryBowser9999

          Okay. Luigi (he says this in MK64 right?)?

  • Nintendecko
  • DryBowser9999

    This game is awesome! After one day I have completed 50cc and unlocked eight characters. My favourite combo is Ludwig with the Standard Bike, Slim wheels and Super Glider.

    • Person McPerson

      My favorite is Metal Mario with the ATV, roller wheels, and any glider.

      • DryBowser9999

        Yeah I guess the gliders don’t really do anything, so it doesn’t matter.
        What’s your favourite track? Mine are Mount Wario, Electrodrome and Sunshine Airport.

        • Bowser498

          3) N64 Rainbow Road
          Honorable mentions to 3ds Music Park and Wii Grumble Volcano.

          • DryBowser9999

            Top 3 Retro Tracks

            1. DS Wario Stadium
            2. N64 Yoshi Valley
            3. DS Tick Tock Clock

            Honourable mentions to 3DS Piranha Plant Slide and N64 Toad’s Turnpike.

          • Bowser498

            Why Wario Stadium?

          • DryBowser9999

            The music, anti-gravity section, and theme.

          • Bowser498

            The music is OK, the Anti-Gravity is a bit challenging, but the design and theme has (improved).

          • DryBowser9999

            Yeah, I suppose. What I really wanted was Wario Colosseum (it’s my favourite track of all time). But I guess I have a bit of a soft spot for any Wario course.

          • Bowser498

            I don’t have Double Dash, but I think Wario Stadium is better just by looking and playing it.

          • DryBowser9999

            Yeah, after actually playing MK8, I’m starting to think Wario Colosseum would be a waste. It could be saved for a MK with more gimmicks and such.
            Do you have MK64? That Wario Stadium could have been crazy.

          • Bowser498

            Yes, I have MK64. (On the Wii), and most of the tracks are pretty bland. That Wario Stadium was pretty boring; I don’t think it will be in MK9.

    • Bowser498

      As of now, I completed 24 cups, unlocked all characters, and have a 3-star ranking in every Grand Prix/Cup (Until Mirror Mode). Hopefully I can get an overall ranking of 3-stars tomorrow! Also, my favorite kart combo is Circuit Special – Slick – Parafoil, which gives me tons of speed. My favorite bike combo is Sport Bike – Slim – Parachute, which can cut corners well and has good acceleration and handling.

      • Bowser498

        YES! I JUST GOT AN OVERALL RANKING OF 3 STARS! :P

  • KinopioToad

    This is my new favorite game! Mario Kart has gone a long way since SNES…
    (By the way, the karts must drive pretty fast to outrun that plane)
