Do you need a different type of controller for this game, one you can turn or something? We have it for the ds only and are purchasing wii u for Christmas and wondering if we need some other remotes other than the ones we already have for our wii?
The game works with the Wii remotes(held sideways w/without the wii wheel or with or without motion-plus), Wii U pro controller, wii remote and nunchuck combination, classic controller connected to a wii remote, and the Wii U gamepad itself. You have many options to choose from! So if you had four wii remotes you would be able to play four players on Mario kart 8. no need for extra purchase unless its preference reasons!
