A new Mario Kart rolls around fairly infrequently – so a new one is a big deal.
To celebrate the launch of Mario Kart 7 Nintendo has already teamed up with West Coast Customs and made a pair of life-size karts, but the TV spot for the game is something truly different.
It seems the firm (or at least its ad agency) made some life-size, moving versions of the game's karts and staged its own little race. The resulting advert is pretty crazy – the vibrant colours and odd happenings are really rather impressive. It looks a little like something your average student would experience on a night out (in certian situations, ahem).
Still, it's an incredible effort and has made us look forward to the game even more.
Mario Kart 7 is released on December 2nd for the Nintendo 3DS.
