3 New Items for Mario Kart 8 – Coin, Figure-8, & Horn Box

We’ve been looking through all the new Mario Kart 8 footage that released today, trying to find new information to share with you. The newest find is three new items we saw scrolling by on a couple videos — a coin, a figure 8, and a box with a horn. We’re not sure yet what they will do, but it is interesting to see! Check them out, and let us know if you have any theories of what they could do.

UPDATE: It looks like GameXplain found the coin gives the player 2 coins, similar to Super Mario Kart.
