But if you are at all on the fence about the Mario Kart 8 release date, aka the Mario Kart Wii U release date, bear in mind this little titbit from the official site: Fan favorite Waluigi is back!

The game, officially titled Mario Kart 8, is coming to Wii U in April 2014.
That's according to what looks like an official snafu from Nintendo of Europe's Spanish department.
Their latest newsletter spilled the beans on the more specific Mario Kart Wii U Spring 2014 release date, pinning the actual month to April.
That's good news for fans of the Mario Kart series, i.e., anyone who is at all likely to have a Wii U.
The Mario Kart Wii U release date being announced via an official Nintendo newsletter in Spain is somewhat anomalous.
They tend to announce these things via Nintendo Direct to a worldwide audience, not solely to members of a particular territory (unless that territory is Japan).
So it seems like Nintendo of Europe may have jumped the gun on this one a little bit.
It's still an official newsletter, though, so this is real, this is true, this is not a rumor.
And that means we'll all be racing upside down come April. This is supposedly from an official Ninty newsletter. There's no way of knowing, but since the fellow seems to be the only one to have taken the trouble of scanning in the picture, it's hard to say for sure.
