Looks fun but how does the split screen work do we all have to use wii motes or can we fuse the Wii U normal controller?

I'm sure there will be plenty of controller options.

I quite liked using the steering wheel on the Wii version.

hey zobmieflamingo, https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Wii-U/Mario-Kart-8-765384.html should answer everything you need to know, looks awesome, with new wepons, more people to play with and some hd old school tracks too.

Cheers. They should do a super smash bros kart that would be fun with the levels from the various other games.

Being upside down really threw me off the first time I played it but I quickly got used to it, even anti grav is well done. Can't wait to get it! All cups in a day? No problem, then off to tournament mode.

@JoeToots. What do you mean by it being Nintendo's Call of Duty? If you mean that it prints money by its name alone, then yes I will agree with you. Other than that they are nowhere near each other for likeness.

There are plenty of control options. I've played all the Mario Kart games and honestly, my favourite control option was the Wii Remote + Nunchuk, it just feels more natural for some reason. However, you can still use the GamePad, or the Wii U Pro Controller (which is a great controller as well). I would even assume you can use the Wii Pro Pad which plugs into the Wii Remote. Either way, I'm really looking forward to this. If it wasn't for the announcement for the new Pokémon games, this would likely be my game of the year (or at least tied with Smash Bros).

Yeah the link Dru gave was good. Will have to pick up another Wii U pro controller then I will be set for 4 player split screen. They are selling an afterglow one on amazon for £25 so I might get that one, have a 360 afterglow controller and it works pretty well for a third party one. Shame they don't have any controllers on here though.

@Havak, I totally agree, the Wii remote and Nunchuk combo is my favorite too. I quite enjoyed using the WiiU Gamepad but I'm sure I'll prefer the Pro controller. MK8 will be a top contender for my GOTY but if Fallout somehow comes out this year then either that or Destiny will be close calls too.

I'm so excited about this game. I watched the latest Nintendo Direct a couple of days ago and It looks really good. The addition of online tournaments such as character specific tournaments looks like a cool addition. The new items too, a defense against those pesky blue shells will be useful online.
