New Mario Kart 8 Trailer for April 2014 – New Items and Courses

Can you hear those kart engines revving up the hype for Mario Kart 8? We’re getting closer to Mario Kart 8′s release on Wii U and to keep the ball rolling, Nintendo has released a new trailer showcasing new items and tracks, both retro and new.

First, let’s look at the two new items showcased in today’s trailer. Nintendo will be adding Piranha Plant and Boomerang items to Mario Kart. The Piranha Plant will work similar to the one that can be carried in Super Mario 3D World. Players will hold the item in front of their kart while the Piranha Plant tries to chomp down on the competition. Also, it looks like players will receive a small boost every time the Piranha Plant takes a chomp. Then we have the Boomerang item, an item that operates exactly how you expect it would. Players can throw the Boomerang at other competitors and it will come back to them to be thrown again. If Mario Kart’s fascination with triples play a role, we can expect a 3 time use limit on this item.

Lastly, there is a heavy emphasis placed on retro tracks from Mario Kart 64 and Mario Kart Wii being revealed in the new trailer. Players will be racing on heavily revamped versions of Toad’s Turnpike, Royal Raceway, Moo Moo Meadows, and Rainbow Road. Of the four, Moo Moo Farm and Rainbow Road seem to have received the biggest facelifts, though that’s not stopping me from being intrigued by the other courses.

Mario Kart 8 will be released on May 30, 2014 on Wii U.

Announced for Nintendo 3DS last year, ambitious FPS, Cult County, has been scrapped, sort of. Now, after launching a Kickstarter campaign, Renegade Kid is set to breathe new life into the game for home console platforms, which includes Wii U.

The game will be created for an optimal home console experience and will retain the episodic structure announced last year. Cult County will also retain the dusty, lonely town atmosphere introduced last year. Of course, Cult County will still focus on survival horror elements. Renegade Kid describes it as b

The Kickstarter campaign is already gaining some traction with 88 backers and $2,540 pledged (at time of publish) within the first 30 minutes – give or take.

The estimated release date for Cult County is May 2015 and will come to Wii U, Steam, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, and Xbox One.

Nintendo has permanently reduced the price of The Wonderful 101 on the Nintendo eShop. The game has been reduced to $29.99 to come close to the price that retailers have been offering the game for.

For our Canadian readers, I can confrim that the game is $34.99 on the Nintendo eShop in Canada. This move compensates for the weak Canadian dollar, which can also be seen at retailers across the country.

Another item from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword appears in Super Smash Bros. and this time it’s The Gust Bellows. The Gust Bellows item can be used to blow opponents away with a strong gust of wind, but will also go wild if someone drops the item.

Sakurai continues to tell that more items from The Legend of Zelda series will be reformulated to fit the Super Smash Bros. universe.
