Destructoid reports that a Nintendo of Europe Newsletter may have leaked the release of Mario Kart 8. The newsletter narrows down the release of Nintendo ‘s flagship kart racer for sometime in April 2014.
Nintendo played it somewhat safe at this year E3, showing off games that where a little all too familiar. However, these are all games that Nintendo needs and are guaranteed to sell well. I find it disappointing that Mario Kart 8 is not coming out during the holiday season. For now all Nintendo has for the Wii U is Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3D World, The Wonderful 101 and a few other games. Hopefully this holiday lineup is enough to gain interest in the Wii U until more games come along.
