There was a ton of video game news this week and a lot of it is coming from Nintendo. If you guys are Mario Kart 8 fans, you’re going to love the news about a new difficulty level. If you’re into Amiibos, however, you might have a tough time getting them. And wait until you see the new trailer for Fire Emblem!

Mario Kart 8 is Getting a New Difficulty Level

Fans of Mario Kart 8 are going to get a new, harder level of difficulty. Right now, and since the beginning of the game, the Nintendo game had three modes: 50cc, 100cc and 150cc. This week we learned that we’re getting an update that will add a 200cc mode. This is going to be a tough one, so it’s time to start practicing your driving skills.
