No date for Mario Kart 8, but a new trailer

Rosalina's in it! On a super bike!  

Rosalina, the princess from the Mario Galaxy games, is in Mario Kart 8 - and she races on a 'goes like the clappers' super bike!

A new video for the game was aired during a Nintendo Direct broadcast this afternoon. No specific release date past "spring 2014" was confirmed.

Mario Kart 8 will also have new 'baby' versions of Nintendo characters, new courses such as an airport and a desert high in the clouds. New vehicles include UFOs, four-wheel ATV buggies, bikes and standard karts.
