Nintendo only confirming 4-player local multiplayer for Mario Kart 8

Through its various videos earlier this week, Nintendo confirmed 12-player online multiplayer for Mario Kart 8. The racer will, however, allow gamers to play locally with others.

Nintendo did confirm to us that up to four users can play Mario Kart 8 locally, but wouldn’t comment beyond this. Austin had asked a Nintendo representative about having a fifth person playing with a GamePad at E3 2013, but wasn’t given a comment.

Also worth mentioning, the E3 demo did not contain any new items. The representative seemed to think that the full game will feature new inclusions, though.
