Nintendo Co. this week demonstrated Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
The preview video includes a single-player race with Princess Peach.
New to Mario Kart 8 are vehicle transformations that allow each kart to race through anti-gravity tracks. In the preview build users could drive against the wall, paraglide after a jump, and cruise underwater.
Mario Kart 8 will be sold in spring 2014.
