The best Mario Kart 8 tricks and shortcuts for Wii U

Next, we will teach you some of the tricks you can use to easily beat your rivals in the races of Mario Kart 8 for Wii U.



Use the turbo chicán wisely

If you happen to have a Turbo Mushroom in the middle of the race, we recommend that you leave it for the moment you see a shortcut or when you want to shorten some of the natural circuits of the circuits.

In the worst case, if a rival has left you stunned, you can use these typical Mario Kart 8 turbos to start with more strength. This way you can quickly get back into the race.

Take advantage of the double boxes

One of the Advantages of Mario Kart 8 for Wii U is that it allows us to take two boxes at the same time. In this sense, we advise you that if unfortunately you have two items that are not of much use, you must drop them immediately and then go through an area where you can collect double boxes.

While you cannot predict which objects will touch you when you cross a double zone, it is better to take risks, as it is difficult for us to get the same objects or even some worse than the ones we already had.


Don't forget the protective items

When you play Mario barth 8 on the Wii console that you can connect to the Smart TV, we must also make the most of the protection from attacks of our rivals, for this you simply have to take a banana, a red or green shell and keep it in the back of our vehicle.


In case you don't know how to use this option, you just have to hold down the "use an item" button to avoid being stunned by rivals' attacks, which is a nightmare.

The main thing is that you have unlocked all the vehicles, since in this way you can test each one until you see which one is best suited to your style of play. For this you have to dedicate hours to the game and as you progress you will be able to unlock more vehicles.



In the end you always have to pay attention to the characteristics of the pilot, you should not be with the character you like the most based on their appearance. It is also important to explore the vehicles, be it a kart, a motorcycle or even an ATV, as everyone feels different in every race.

On the other hand, remember to test the different configurations of kites and wheels, because they are essential to defeat our opponents on the track. As you explore the different combinations, you will be able to find the perfect formula for you.


Memorize the circuits

In all racing games, especially those of Super Mario available on Android, it is very important to know some details of the circuits, since in this way we can gain a significant advantage over our rivals. That is, you should at least know which are the tightest corners, where the shortcuts are and when you can give full throttle without being surprised by an impossible angle at which you should skid.
