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.
