During today's Nintendo Direct stream, Satoru Iwata presented viewers with a whole new gameplay trailer for Mario Kart 8. This video highlighted a lot of old as well as new information regarding the title.

Fans of Rosalina will be glad to know she makes a return along side new baby versions of Mario, Luigi, Princess and even Rosalina. The trailer also showed off two new courses, Airport and Cloud-Top, along with a new buggy kart.

The Airport course featured kart races through the halls of an airport terminal, then out onto the tarmac only to glide dangerously close to a passenger aircraft. The Cloud-Top course had karts racing atop clouds, vines, and airships as they fought for the win. There was also some racing through the dark innards of a thunderous cloud.

Check out the trailer below to see for more.

Mario Kart 8 releases exclusively to the Nintendo Wii U console sometime in Spring of 2014.
