Nintendo may have accidentlaly narrowed down its vague “spring 2014” release window for Mario Kart 8 on Wii U.

According to an unverified image supposedly taken from a Nintendo of Europe newsletter, the racer will release in April 2014.

It’s a long wait, but Nintendo only announced the new karting game last month, during a Nintendo direct session.

It feels like we only just had a new Mario Kart, but 3DS-exclusive Mario Kart 7 dropped in late 2011, – and it certainly didn’t have this anti-gravity gameplay business.

Other new features include the ability to easily create and share videos of your triumphs.
