E3 2013: Nintendo Direct: Mario Kart 8 Announced, Will Release Next Year

In a move that is unsurprising to most, Nintendo will be releasing the next installment in the Mario Kart franchise, entitled Mario Kart 8. The new game will integrate anti-gravity mechanics and three-dimensional courses among other new features. The gameplay that was shown off reminds of us F-Zero quite a bit, which can only mean great things for this iteration of everyone’s favorite kart racer. The title will be out next year.
