Looks like those predictions about the game’s release date weren’t too far off, an official Nintendo of Europe newsletter has the game pegged for an April 2014 release date.  Here’s the newsletter in question:

Newsletter MK8

Or as translated, Mario Kart 8 will be released in April 2014, tie into Miiverse somehow and feature HD graphics.  Seems clear to me.

So, are you happy about Mario Kart 8′s now pretty much confirmed April 2014 release date?  And given that this is the European release date, do you think the US one might differ from it a bit?

Most of the times US gets games earlier than Europe, so the date might be a few months earlier or so.

Good. I've been waiting for this since I got bored of Mario Kart Wii. I just hope there's no gliders like in Mario Kart 7. That was one reason I didn't want MK7. I didn't like that gimmick.

That's too bad because MK8 is like a combo of Wii and 7, like going underwater, glide, the bikes are back. But with more.

Why do you hate them? They're pretty fun for me.

They don't look like a fun gimmick. It looks more like a hassle than anything else.

 

The only reason I'm getting MK8, even if it is like MK7, is because I'd rather play a console Mario Kart rather than handheld anyway.

 

I actually hope that this game has like a shop and customization. That's something MK has been lacking for a long time now.

looks can be deceiving. they are the best part, it's just tricky to throw items forward with it in the air. besides, whenever you go into a glide you can hit a button to put the glider away. even when over a gap you can do it, fall down, then get transported to the closest side, a little cheat there.

If I remember correctly. I think gliders are returning in this one.
