Nintendo is known for their periodic Nintendo Directs in which members of its team unveil upcoming titles or reveal new aspects of a game. Today’s Mario Kart 8 Nintendo Direct pretty much answers any questions you may have about the upcoming Wii U racer, and it does so in a way that’s quite thorough.

Ever wonder if bikes are faster than karts? What about how anti-gravity tracks affect a race? These questions and more have been answered (and quite comically too) in a unique format. Lasting over 35 minutes, this informative Nintendo Direct showcases new tracks, music, and features and sure gets us in the mood to burn rubber.

Mario Kart 8 comes to Wii U on May 29.
