By   /   May 7, 2014

Even though Nintendo’s Wii U continues to suffer on the part of net profit loss and decreased number of sold units, Mario Kart 8 has managed to stay in the limelight.

Being one the most anticipated titles of this month, Mario Kart 8 has gained enough hype and some users over MKboards have designed a table showcasing all the characters’ stats featured in the game.

Mario Kart 8 Character Stats

There are a total of 7 weight tiers which are divided as: Feather-weight, Lightweight, Medium, Cruiser, Heavyweight, Metal, and Super Heavyweight.
