Mario Kart 8 is a kart racing game and the eighth major installment in the Mario Kart series, developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U video game console. Like other games in the series, in Mario Kart 8, players control characters from the Mario franchise and participate in kart racing on various race tracks, using items to hinder opponents or gain advantages. While incorporating game mechanics originally featured in earlier Mario Kart games, Mario Kart 8 introduces anti-gravity sections that allow players to drive on walls or ceilings.

Known Issues

Mii issues

Some texts are missing

  • For example: the text in the stats menu.
    • You need a shareddata.bin dump from your Wii U to fix this.

1.5.0 Windows 10 EUR Intel Core i7 4710HQ @ 2.5 GHz Nvidia GeForce GTX 860m 2GB anitokyo 40-55 Playable Game is playable except having some hiccups when in gameplay. Emulator can not load all graphical layers as some menu text is missing. The brightness and contrast for the 3D models should be balanced for menus. They appear dark.

1.5.1 Windows 10 USA Intel Core i5 6600k @ 4.5GHz Nvidia GTX 760 Meron35 60 Playable MAKE SURE TO DOWNLOAD THE LATEST UPDATE - it improves the FPS a lot AND you get 200cc. Only the occasional stutter in FPS. Lighting in general seems to be weird, either blindingly bright or non-existently black. Lighting is particularly glitchy with kart headlights on Toad's Turnpike. Audio is glitchy whenever a new sound plays (eg drifting, changing from the cloud to the thunderstorm section in Cloudtop Cruise, hang gliding).

1.5.2 Windows 10 USA AMD FX-8350 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti DJTHED 40 Playable Other than the extremely long load times and long loading hitches that can happen occasionally mid-race, it is very playable and I can assume it can be played to completion. The only other real problems are just purely visual and audio bugs, but they don't get in the way of gameplay.

1.5.2 Windows 7 USA Intel Core i7 3930k @ 4.22 GHz AMD Radeon R9 270x Nerd86 30-60 Runs 48-60 FPS on menus. Occasional speed drops / audio glitches on menus. 30-45 FPS in game. Audio is 95% perfect. Game freezes completely every so often (say, every 10-15 seconds). Audio keeps playing during freeze. Beautifully smooth gameplay except for freezes.
1.5.2 Windows 10 USA Intel Core i7 4710HQ Nvidia GTX 860M that_90s_guy 40 in-race, 53 in time trial Playable Time trials are almost playable, with a couple of lightning issues in many areas which can be ignored. Races take a big FPS drop though to around 35-45fps. Also, random lag spikes can be had at the start of the race, but they reduce in number considerably as the race goes.
1.5.2 Windows 10 EUR Intel Core i5 4460 Nvidia GTX 970 Ashif 50 Playable Graphics aren't perfect but are getting better with every patch, in game audio can be smooth but has issues which make sounds sound unpleasant at times, game feels smooth even at lower fps such as 45 due to sound not slowing down with the game. Loading times can be long. Very enjoyable as of this version.

The second race is a lot smoother, staying constantly above 50 FPS and hitting 60 often (with some very rare drops into the 40s). There are some menu elements that don't show up (such as the 50/100/150cc illustration animations), and the character selection models are greyed-out. Also, load times are long. Overall, though, definitely playable.
1.5.2 Windows 10 USA Intel Core i7 6700K nVidia GTX 1080 SD456 60 Playable Sometimes it stutters, and it is loading the first race of a cup for 2-3 minutes. Other than that it works perfectly

1.5.3 Windows 10 USA Intel i7 4790k @4.5GHz Nvidia GTX 970 (SLI) LokeYourLord 0-60 Playable Game is fairly playable, but the FPS is super variable. One second i have a stable 60, then 0, then 60 and so goes the loop (means that it stutters about every 5-10 seconds and when entering water and alike it stutters heavily).

1.5.4 Windows 10 USA AMD FX-8350 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti DJTHED 50-60 Playable This version of Cemu really improved the overall performance of this title compared to previous versions. Long loading times and initial loading hitches are still a thing, but once it gets going, it runs butter smooth on my mid-range PC.

1.7.3d Windows 10 USA AMD FX 6300 @ OC 4.5GHz AMD HD 5750 dendros77 40-60 Playable In order to make this game run with this GPU (thanks to the old legacy drivers 15.7.1 or 16.2.1), you have to run the game in fullscreen the whole time. That's a workaround.
1.7.3d Windows 10 USA Intel Core i5 6600K @ 3.5GHz Radeon R9 390 Hyperbrid 45-59 Runs Missing text in textboxes. There are some texture glitches at the start of the race and the framerate drops and rises frequently making it not enjoyable enough to play. The multiplayer mode works but with alot of texture glitches and massive framerate drops which never goes to 60.

1.8.0b Windows 10 USA Ryzen 1600 @ 3.9GHz Nvidia GTX 1070 caiom 55-60 Playable Works well. Missing some menu UI. 4 player split screen is almost perfect, the FPS in that situation can go down to 50 which is kind of annoying (most of the time is 57-60).

With cemuhook 0.4.4.0 both of these features appear and the game runs as intended at 60FPS, with no issues. I did notice a slight lighting bug when selecting a character but nothing that takes away from gameplay in anyway.
1.8.1b Windows 10 (64 bit) USA Intel Core i5 2500k @ 4.00GHz AMD Radeon 7970 jebbyderinger 60 Playable Works @ 60fps 95% of the time. Dialog boxes are missing text when you win a cup and there are some shadow bugs on tracks where the lighting is mimicing early morning or late evening (this happens in certain corners. The shadows aren't alligned with the objects creating them and appear to be moving around the landscape.)

1.8.2 Windows 8.1 (64 bit) USA AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4GHz Nvidia GTX 760 Wecl 45-60 Playable Text issue fixed by downloading the latest fonts from CEMUHook. FPS info is from running the game at regular settings, with GPU buffer cache accuracy set to low. When using the Mario Kart 360p/540p graphics packs, gameplay stays in the 50-60 range. Graphics driver crashes on some courses but I'm sure that's more of an Nvidia issue than CEMU.
