The title will see all courses from the original Wii U title included and will benefit from some additional courses including the Splatoon themed Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, Mario Kart's Battle Course 1 on the SNES (yes!) and a track based off of Luigi's Mansion from the Nintendo Gamecube.

The revamped Battle Mode includes Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast modes. Players can now carry two items at a time which includes new items from older games such as Boo (a ghost who steals items from others) and the Feather which enables you to jump.

We'll have more on Mario Kart 8 soon, for now why not feast your eyes on the very latest screenshots below.
