Mario Kart 8’s stunning new trailer blasted onto YouTube recently showcasing some stunning new visuals and racetracks, including the new Rainbow Road which utilises the hover-kart capabilities of all vehicles to have the player drifting around vertical corners… during writing that it actually blew my mind visualising it.

Two new weapons are thrown into the fray too. Firstly the Boomerang Flower, which functions in the same way that it does Super Mario 3D Land, and the Potted Piranha Plant which chomps at nearby racers and gives the user a speed boost upon a successful chomp.

The trailer subtlety shows off three new characters too; Lakitu, Shyguy and Metal Mario. Check out the trailer above and witness the glory of the Wii U aka most underrated Nintendo console so far (in my opinion).
