Mario Kart 8 Mario Kart 8 continues and expands upon traditional gameplay elements of the Mario Kart series, in which characters from the Mario universe race against each other in go-karts, attempting to out race their opponents using special items found in boxes around the track. Returning features from previous installments include motorbikes, and 12-player racing from Mario Kart Wii, as well as hang gliders, underwater racing, and vehicle customization from Mario Kart 7. New features include anti-gravity racing, where certain parts of a track can allow racers to drive on walls and ceilings. New characters include the Koopalings, Baby Rosalina, and Pink Gold Peach. New items include the Boomerang Flower, the Piranha Plant, the Crazy Eight, and the Super Horn. There are a total of 48 tracks to race on. 25 of them were created for this game, and 23 appeared in previous Mario Kart games. Along with local multiplayer, Mario Kart 8 supports online multiplayer for up to 12 players, playable with friends, or with strangers both regionally and worldwide, with voice chat support outside of races. Mario Kart TV lets the player view replay data from other players, including rewind and slow-motion playback functionality, and then upload highlights to YouTube.
