Mario Kart 8 Direct: New Items, Online Features and More

Not only did this Direct take a bit of a different approach to hosting than usual, but it revealed almost all unknown parts of the game, before launch on the 30th of May.

This included showing off kart customisation in full, the online suite which includes 12 player races online as well as custom tournaments and the ability to upload replays and race highlights directly to Youtube.
