Over the last few years, some of you have been using the mariokart8.com domain to go straight to our database of known Mario Kart 8 information. Today, we have some good news and bad news. The bad news is that you will soon not be able to use that domain anymore to access our Mario Kart 8 web page. The good news is that, following some collaborative and proactive discussion, we have officially transferred the domain into the hands of Nintendo of America.
It has been a delight to work with Nintendo throughout this process. We only hope this will continue to strengthen our relationship with the company. We are excited, as always, to continue providing game and console news and reviews to you, the Nintendo fans.
The other good news is that you can still access our database of known information about Mario Kart 8 by going to http://www.nintendofuse.com/2014/03/05/mario-kart-8-details. If that’s too long for you, feel free to use http://bit.ly/mariokart8info.
UPDATE (May 6, 2014): The transaction is complete, and MarioKart8.com no longer points to our site. Currently, it will take you to Nintendo.com.
