Here's a side by side comparison of Nintendo's newly announced 200 cc Mario Kart class, coming to a Wii U near you for free on April 23.  They weren't kidding when they said you'd need your brakes!  And hey, maybe you'll finally be able to take some of those nigh impossible shortcuts with ease.

Totaka's Song is a classic Nintendo easter egg that appears in games sound director/composer Kazumi Totaka has worked on for the last 25 years.  He also provides the voice for Yoshi, so in this case, he's singing his own tune!  Check out other games the song has appeared in here:

In an interview with Bloomberg, Reggie Fils-Aime stated that pre-orders of Smash have surpassed those for Mario Kart 8, and that "The launch of Mario Kart 8 has essentially doubled our Wii U sales year-on-year. Our expectation is that the sell-through for Smash is going to be very strong, certainly on par with what we saw with Mario Kart 8. We think the impact on hardware will be similarly dramatic."


Meanwhile, Sony has sold 8 million PS4s, Microsoft has moved 3 million Xbox Ones, and Nintendo has sold 2 million Wii Us this year. We'll see what happens after the holiday season.
