This Mario Kart 8 trailer marks Rosalina’s debut

Someone at Nintendo sure loves her

With everything going on in this Mario Kart 8 trailer, I’m once again left confused as to why no one came up with a more memorable title for the game. Regardless, it’s looking great as ever, and should be yet another convincing reason to own a Wii U when it releases this spring.

But, as much as I’m happy to see Super Mario Galaxy‘s Rosalina end up here following her reveal for Super Smash Bros., those darned babies are back. It all started for me in the Yoshi’s Island days with baby Mario, and the relationship with these characters has only deteriorated from there. If you’ve played any of the Nintendo-themed sports games, you know my pain. And now they’ll have access to blue shells? My pride can’t take losing to an infant in Mario Kart.
