Namco Bandai Credited On Mario Kart 8

Namco Bandai helping on more than just Smash Bros.

We all know by now that Namco Bandai are helping Nintendo make Super Smash Brothers on both 3DS and Wii U, but it is now come to light that Namco Bandai also helped out, in some capacity, with Mario Kart 8. As of right now we do not know what exactly Namco Bandai helped with but maybe it won\’t be too long before we find out. A recent example of something similar was Retro Studios helping out on Mario Kart 7 on 3DS to create some of the tracks, so perhaps it is something similar.


Namco Bandai are no stranger to Mario Kart, having developed the arcade Mario Kart titles which included some Namco Bandai characters such as Pac-Man and Blinky. It is good to see Nintendo form such a strong bond with a big 3rd party developer.

If you want to see the credits for yourself, watch the video below. But of course if you are trying to avoid seeing any of the tracks, then stay clear from watching.
