Mario Kart 8 is almost upon us. But before we all get too carried away with all the awesome new features like anti-gravity and next-gen moustaches, let's pause for a moment to reflect on the long, eventful life of this wonderful series.
Nintendo offered up a history lesson today in a short video that sums up the game's 22-year saga. It's definitely not enough time to give the series its full due, but it paints a pretty picture of how far Mario Kart has come while still staying true to its roots.
OK, Nintendo, we get it: Mario Kart is pretty great. Now can we just play the new one already?
