With every Mario Kart game, Rainbow Road is always the flagship track that is reimagined every time. After much anticipation, the Mario Kart 8 Rainbow Road footage has finally emerged, and Nintendo has an absolutely stunning track.
YouTube channel GameXplain has released their gameplay video, showing off the new, incredible visuals presented this time around. The new track combines the best new features of Mario Kart 8. Anti-gravity gameplay is a new element, and fits Rainbow Road extremely well, as it seems that Rainbow Road was always intended to have this feature. The track also features a “spaceship-like” design, and shows off the best of what Mario Kart has to offer along with the graphical capabilities of the Wii U. Similar to previous Mario Kart games, this track is part of the Special Cup.
