Earlier this month CVG published a Mario Kart 8 preview in which Chris provides his impressions of 16 of the game's tracks, as well as new items and characters.

"Providing there's no surprise broken online multiplayer mode," he says, "or some yet-to-be-revealed tracks turning out to be uncharacteristically dull, from what we've played it seems certain that Mario Kart 8 will be another exceptional entry in one of gaming's most popular series."
