I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library.

“There Is Only One Real Last Chance For Wii U And It Is Mario Kart 8,” According To Retailer

Posted on Thursday, January 23 @ 06:55:30 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Mario Kart 8
 is set to arrive on Wii U during the first half of 2014, and according to a handful of major retailers, it's the last bastion of hope for Nintendo's struggling console.

Speaking to MCV under the safety of anonymity, one retailer said flat out that "there is only one real last chance for Wii U and it is Mario Kart 8. It could still be the game that sparks interest in Wii U, but it would need to be combined with a more mass market retail price."

One of UK's largest retail outlets echoed a similar sentiment, saying, "A sub-£200 machine will help, and Mario Kart is desperately needed to reach the fans. We also need something revolutionary that makes use of the second screen and has mainstream appeal, which is easier said than done."

And finally, another retail source said bluntly, "£199 and Mario Kart 8. Simple."

Could it really be that simple? It looks like we'll just have to wait and see. For Nintendo's sake, I hope it is.
