Mario Kart 8 - Summary

Feel the rush as your kart rockets across the ceiling!

Race upside-down and along walls on anti-gravity tracks in the most action-fueled Mario Kart™ game yet! Take on racers across the globe and share videos of your greatest moments via Mario Kart TV.

Driving up a waterfall or across the ceiling can provide an intense adrenaline rush, but that’s not all anti-gravity is good for. It also provides a wild new gameplay mechanic: if you collide into other racers in zero-g, you’ll earn speed boosts worth bragging about. Luckily, you can upload and share your best moments and watch your friends’ using the all-new Mario Kart TV. Returning features include 12-player online play, gliders, underwater racing, motorbikes, and custom karts. You can even race as Bowser’s seven minions, the Koopalings!

I don't know what it is but something makes me prefer this version over the switch port. Could be aby bumber of things like the lack of (ugly) purple sparks or the better online (imo) but the Wii U version just well felt warmer than the switch port or something.
