Mario Kart 8 - New US Lab Test Adverts

Mario Kart 8 - New US Lab Test Adverts on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo of America have started to air a handful of amusing adverts for Mario Kart 8 ahead of the May 30th launch.

With the upcoming Wii U release boasting new items, mechanics an scrumptious HD graphics, the TV campaign revolves around a set of real life "lab tests" to simulate some of the new features of the game: from the "upside down" test to the "super horn" trial. Comedy mischief ensues!

The "Super Horn" allows a racer to attack others with an intense shockwave, disabling items held by nearby opponents, or even blocking the likes of a Blue Shell. The new boomerang grants the holder three attacks, cutting through any upcoming obstacles with ease.




Which is your favourite video of the Mario Kart 8 trials?

LOL brilliant stuff - would love to see similar ads here in the UK.

Just over two weeks to go and I haven't seen a single Mario Kart 8 ad yet... :/ Kicking off on launch day supposedly.

Is this Nintendo???? Doing an advertisement??? For a game???? On Wii U???????

I hope they're finally realizing this is a need for the console, and this game is sure to move it. I mean, lest we forget how well Mario Kart Wii did.

Now this is adequate humor, this is the kind of humor Nintendo should approach & not that stupid overly serious humor that the Tobiyashi Life Nintendo Direct had or the lame play on words with thd Reggie Mech...stuff like that isn't very funny.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422
