At its pre-E3 conference this morning, Nintendo confirmed that the recently announced Mario Kart: Double Dash!! will support up to eight players. Eight-player games will be possible only with a setup consisting of a broadband adapter, two consoles, and two screens. We'll let you know if the effort will be worthwhile when we check out the game from the comfort of one of the many kart-style bucket seats at Nintendo's E3 booth once the show officially opens.
For more information on Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, which is scheduled for release toward the end of this year, check out our previous coverage of the game.
