    Iwata: Mario Kart 8 launches in May, DS software coming to Wii U Virtual Console

    Confirmed by Iwata during a corporate briefing today. I mean, we know it was going to launch in the Spring but May is a little later than I had expected. Mario Kart Wii was also announced to have sold 35.26 million copies to date.

    That's going to be great. I read an article from ign how Iwata was saying the Wii U's gamepad was hindering Wii U's success. Hope for the best. Can't wait for Mario Kart.

    You can see the boxart as well. It's small but looks pretty sweet.

    Just noticed it. It looks really cool. That HD on Mario makes everything looks so beautiful. I'm hoping they get to advertise this like crazy when the time comes.

    DS games on Wii U using side by side representation of the dual screens? Um.....that looks pretty awesome to me.

    What he said in the news articles I've read doesn't look like something that will exactly push a lot console sales. It's great that we'll be able to play DS games (not 3DS?) on the Wii U (downloads or will there be a USB add-on?) but that's not going to convince people to buy the console.

    It would make me more inclined to buy it if the DS functionality works well on the controller/screen. I would probably end up selling my 3DS to pay for the Wii U. I may be in the minority, but this really appeals to me.
