Last night Nintendo announced the release date of Mario Kart 8 during their Direct broadcast. During the announcement they also revealed a brand-new playable character coming to the game – the Koopalings!

Introducing Larry Koopa, Lemmy Koopa, Roy Koopa, Iggy Koopa, Ludwig von Koopa, Morton Koopa Jr., and Wendy O. Koopa, Bowser’s little minions will no doubt be getting up to no good throughout their time in the game.

So not only did Nintendo reveal the release date of May 30, they also revealed not one, but seven new playable characters. Crikey! You can see the brand new trailer above.
