Mario Kart 8 coming this May


Nintendo has revealed that Mario Kart 8 will be released in May during its quarterly earnings presentation.



During the presentation, Nintendo revealed its future plans for the brand, revealing that its "Nintendo Network ID is important," and therefore it has plans to implement this on all future hardware and even smartphones. 

"It doesn't make sense for us not to do business in [sic] smart devices," although Nintendo said on more than one occasion that it has no plans whatsoever to release games on smart devices.

In addition to the above, Nintendo has said that it also plans to release a "Quality of Life" initiative, allowing non-wearable devices and software to monitor your health. It's unclear what Nintendo means by this, but more will no doubt be revealed around E3 time or during future Nintendo Direct broadcasts.

Elsewhere, Nintendo has acknowledged that the Wii U's weakness is the GamePad and therefore has plans to fast track games which make sure of it. This will start with Mario Kart 8 and go on from there.

What do you think of the above? Can Nintendo turn things around?

Still rather have a DS/3DS player than have to fork out for games all over again.

True but then it would be good for the games that are really hard to get now without paying hundreds for them. They should also do gamecube games.

I love the fact that the idea for the DS/3DS player is catching speed

Been waiting for Gamecube games since Wii U.launch, sure they said they were going to do them, but they've not even transferred N64 games from the Wii VC yet.

Only Gamecube games I am waiting for are Paper Mario: TYD & Super Mario Sunshine. The rest are a bonus

I want F-Zero GX, wouldn't mind Starfox Assault too, but only because I've never played it.
