Mario Kart 8 boasts 32 courses
Mario Kart 8, the highly anticipated racer exclusive to Wii U, will feature 32 courses -- a combination of both new and remixed classic courses. There will be 16 new courses and 16 remixed classic courses which have been redesigned and re-imagined for the game's new physics.
For example, Toad's Turnpike, from Mario Kart 64, will now allow players to drive up certain walls in anti-gravity mode. Other fan favorite classic courses include Moo Moo Meadows from Mario Kart Wii and Donut Plains from Super Mario Kart.
Also, for the first time in the Mario Kart series, select courses in Mario Kart 8 will feature music recorded by live performers.
Mario Kart 8 is due out exclusively for the Wii U on May 30. It is now available for pre-order.
