Testing Out Mario Kart 8's Highlight Sharing

It's no surprise that some people may question Nintendo's previous adventures into the world of online gaming and infrastructure. With the release of Mario Kart 8 however, the publisher seems to be taking the steps to fully embrace the shared gaming experience concept that has taken gaming communities by storm over the last few years.

After every single-player race, players have the option to view their race highlights. As the name suggests, this presents a 30 second montage of some of the best moments from the laps before - everything from sweet tricks and drifts to effectively using items against opponents.

Afterwards you are able to share this video on the Mario Kart Miiverse community and your own personal YouTube channel. Soon, everyone will be able to relive all your glory, and you too can relive theirs.

In the midst of all this Mario Kart fever (It did sell 1.2 million copies in its first weekend), here are some of my choice highlights from this past weekend with the game. The following four montages show off various characters, items, and the new anti-gravity segments of race tracks. Also, motorcycles only. Motorcycles are sweet.

Feel free to share any of your own personal highlights and if you ever want to race online, jarenwade is my Nintendo ID.
