Mario Kart 8: Rainbow Road video compares N64 and Wii U

"Okay. Maybe the Wii U's selling point will be graphics," Kotaku EIC Stephen Totilo wrote as a headline yesterday. It's true: many of you were quite pleased by Mario Kart 8's new trailer.

As has become series tradition, the upcoming Wii U racing game will feature a new Rainbow Road and an updated take on a classic. IGN has created a new video that compares the original N64 track with the updated Wii U version. After seeing the track in motion, perhaps you'll agree that yes, maybe Wii U is all about the graphics.
