Mario Kart 8

Will Mario Kart 8 feature voice chat? Right now at least, the answer seems to be “no”.

Mario Kart 8 already has a listing up on the eShop. Online multiplayer, leaderboards, and Miiverse are all included in the “Supports Online Play” sub-category. Voice chat, however, is nowhere to be found. Typically, “Game Chat” is listed if a particular game supports the feature.

This isn’t exactly an official confirmation from Nintendo, though right now I wouldn’t expect the functionality to be included.
