Mario Kart 8 is definitely a game that a lot of Nintendo fans have been eagerly anticipating for a while now, and thanks to great reviews it is certainly going to also be selling some Wii U consoles. However, what hasn’t been so certain is just what kind of an impact that this game will have on the struggling Wii U.
Nintendo’s UK Mario brand manager Roger Langford spoke with MCV and said the following:
“I certainly feel that Mario Kart 8 can be the catalyst that will broaden Wii U’s horizons. It’s very important for us that we have a successful launch and continue the promotion throughout the year and beyond.”
It’s hard to predict how this will impact Wii U, as many people seem to have given up on the system. If this great game is followed by a string of great games, though, then that is when you will see the Wii U truly come into its own. If any game is going to get the ball rolling for the Wii U, then Mario Kart 8 can definitely be the game to do just that. If it doesn’t, well… maybe Nintendo really is screwed!
