We’re calling this a rumor as the company hasn’t officially confirmed anything yet, and we still don’t know the exact date that it will be coming to the Wii U. However, Nintendo has previously stated that the game will be out sometime in “Spring 2014″, which could also mean March or a little later than April.

It’s worth noting that Mario Kart for the Wii was launched during the month of April back in 2008, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Nintendo will repeat the pattern again.
