Plus, new UFOs and ATV buggy vehicles revealed.

Nintendo debuted a new trailer for Mario Kart 8 during today’s Nintendo Direct.

The clip reveals new playable characters Rosalina, as well as various “Baby” Nintendo characters like Baby Mario and Baby Luigi. New course settings include an airport, the desert, and above the clouds. New vehicles shown include UFOs, four-wheel ATV buggies, and of course, standard karts and bikes.

Watch the new trailer below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.

    Cool.. but they teased me with that Kirby scene. Dammit I want Kirby in the game now! >_>

      Yeah I thought Kirby was joining Kart. They should just let everyone from smash join kart.

        Mario Kart (8 (or 9 because 8 is pretty much done.)): Nintendo Stars. Then MK being rebranded as Nintendo Stars Kart. Of course my title sucks but you get the idea.

    Confirmation of characters and vehicles is good.
    Just bring back the co-op cups.

    Everything else I could get used to, but I miss not having co-op multiplayer.

    Baby characters are such a waste.
