Listen to Mario Kart 8's entire soundtrack right now

Ahead of the Wii U game's release this month, entire official soundtrack posted to YouTube.


Mario Kart 8 for Wii U doesn't arrive for another few weeks, but the game's entire official soundtrack is now available for your listening pleasure at the YouTube video above.

The songs include impressive guitar riffs and the kind of upbeat and snappy themes that the Mario Kart series has become known for. It's also worth pointing out that "most" of the Mario Kart 8 music was recorded by live performers. This is a first for the entire Mario Kart series.

Mario Kart 8 launches May 30 exclusively for Wii U. The game includes 32 total courses--16 are new and 16 are remakes (and there's two Rainbow Roads!). If you buy Mario Kart 8, Nintendo will give you an extra game for free--and the options are nothing to sneeze at. A special $330 Mario Kart 8 Wii U premium bundle will also be available at launch.
