All The Tracks In Mario Kart 8

All The Tracks In Mario Kart 8

In the latest bit of Mario Kart 8 news, Nintendo has compiled a helpful list of all the tracks that will be featured in the new game that’s out later this month for the Wii U. As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been talking about a Mario Kart lot lately, mostly just because the game looks pretty amazing. How amazing? Well, let’s do the maths. What do you get when you add up 32 race tracks, eight battle courses, and one next-gen Mario moustache?

  • Toad’s turnpike, yesssss!! Also remember that tick tock clock level being pretty fun. Excitement levels…. reaching critical…

    Just occurred to me how terrifying donkey is in that final pic :/

  • Ghost Valley 1 on SNES is my favourite Mario Kart track ever. I felt you should all know.

    • Aw maaan… I love it too, but you got me all excited thinking it was on the list and I missed it :'(

  • I will be downloading this day 1, awesome that we get a free game with it as well. If this doesn’t move some Wii U’s then I don’t know what is wrong with people!

    • Yeah it’s a obviously a big push to move consoles. If anyone had their eye on it it’s a no brainer to dive in on this, getting a console with two games straight up

  • I *REALLY* wish they’d put Airship Fortress in one of these newer Mario Kart games.
    I loved that level D:

  • “Rainbow Road (N64)”
    Wonder if the crazy shortcut is still do-able?

    I’m so pumped for this game, definitely inviting a bunch of mates over for beers/pizza and Mario Kart when this comes out.

  • Yoshi’s Canyon was easily the most frustrating track in Mario Kart 64. Now a whole new generation is going to be asking “Why are there no ropes here? And what is that giant egg doing there?”
