Two More Mario Kart 8 Items Detailed

Back in the beginning of the month, Nintendo announced four new items in Mario Kart 8: the Boomerang Flower, the Piranha Plant, and two mysterious items. Coming out of today’s info dump, the last two items have been formally unveiled:

  • Super Horn: Use this item to send a shock wave around your kart, spinning out anyone who gets too close. You can also take out incoming items like Bananas, Red Shells, and yes, the Spiny Shell.
  • Crazy Eight – Just like the Lucky Seven from Mario Kart 7, this item will spawn a total of eight items around your kart. These items include a Green Shell, a Red Shell, a Banana, a Mushroom, a Star, a Bob-omb, a Blooper, and a Coin.

What do you think of the last two items? How awesome is it that you can essentially destroy an incoming Blue Shell? Share your thoughts in the comments!

I never thought Super Horn was so strong, you can defeat ali the kinds of itens with it, except Bullet Bill and Star (I dont know about the Potted Piranha Plant, but probably it’s another unstoppable iten, in others words probably Super Horn cant survive VS the big Piranha) and Crazy 8 is totally the same thing as Lucky 7 but with a coin.

If it can stop a Blue Shell it can stop a Bullet Bill…….As the Star…the only thing that is stronger than the Star is Boohemoth.

Sorry but I dont imagine it stopping a bullet bill, it can be stroger but not that strong. Also the Spiny Shell is an iten who a characters can throw, with bullet bill is different, with tranform into the bullet bill and you turno temporary invensible, you dont throw anything.

I have to agree with you for the bullet bill being invincible against the Sound Horn, and I also think that the Star can’t stop it, because it makes you invincible. Also, you got some spelling errors in your comment… :/

Sorry about the spelling errors. It’s because I use my tablet when I post that comment and it automatically change some words. Anyway the comment was already edited so I think there’s no more spelling errors there.

Yeah, well, the Survivor was started before Mario Kart 8 was released, so.

Super Horn destroys Blue Shells. As a Therunawayguys member once said, there is a god.

I knew it! I knew that there would be some kind of Crazy Eight!

I knew it!!! I knew the last item to the Crazy 8 Item was going to be the coin! At least now we know what the last two items do know… 😛

I wish the items were random receiving from Crazy 8

I really was hoping the Crazy Eight wouldn’t be the Lucky Seven with another item… But, it really couldn’t be much else, now that I think about it. And did the extra item really have to be the Coin?

I was sort of right with my prediction of the Super Horn. I said it would be a box that would create strong sound waves that would affect your screen, rendering it difficult to see (Kind of like Blooper, really). So I was sort of right… Sort of.

And an item that can finally fight back against blue shells? Hallelujah. ^.^

We shouldn’t get too excited for the Super Horn to save us from Blue Shells, as a matter of fact, because according to the GameXplain preview, the item comes up extremely rarely, like the Lucky 7 from MK7 (probably the same for Crazy 8).

But when it does come up, the Blue Shell better watch out.

They could have at least tried to make the horn look pretty. Oh yeah, I also got my prediction about the Crazy 8 right. I just knew it was a coin! Although that actually sucks.

I don’t want to be in a troll’s path when they spam the Super Horn in Online Mode… The Tanooki Leaf was enough…

The thing is, Super Horn is extremely rare to get. If I recall, GameXplain said they only got that item like once or twice every few races.

Now, the Super Horn may be an item most people might want to hold onto for winning, but they’re stuck with that item until you use it. You can’t pick up any other item until then.

Crazy 8 is decent, but I think the Super Horn is my new favorite Mario Kart item.
