The best things in life happen in May. The trees are coming into life, flowers are all flowery and whatnot, I have my birthday (the eleventh, put it in your calendar) and now the sweetest of all the months has been bedecked in  even more loveliness, thanks to gaming giants Nintendo. The Japanese company tonight announced that Mario Kart 8 will be releasing on May 30th, to eager fans who’ve had no Karty goodness (read: rage) since Mario Kart: Wii, by far the most entertaining thing ever to happen to that console.

From the trailers we’ve seen so far, Mario Kart 8 should be just as awesome as its previous incarnation and should hopefully boost sales of Nintendo’s current console as we go through 2014. Be sure to check back on N3rdabl3 for a review in Spring, when I’ll no doubt be screaming ‘They keep fucking Blue-shelling me as I’m about to cross the finish line, God I hate this shit’ during a thirty hour marathon of joy-rage.
