Mario Kart Comes To TV, Race Highlights To Be Shown On E4

Nintendo and UK broadcaster Channel 4 announced plans Friday to show in-game race highlights from upcoming Wii U racer Mario Kart 8 on Freeview channel E4.

Due for release on Friday, May 30th, Mario Kart 8 allows players to share highlight footage from their races, no doubt featuring plenty of amusing banana-peel slip moments, directly via YouTube and Nintendo’s own MiiVerse social network.

The partnership between Nintendo and Channel 4’s E4 will see chosen ‘Mario Kart TV’ clips shown on television each evening over the course of a week.
