Mario Kart 8 Bundle Confirmed


With the release date of Mario Kart 8 right around the corner, Nintendo U.K. announced today that Europe will be getting a new Mario Kart themed bundle. The bundle will include a 32 GB Wii U, a black GamePad, sensor bar and a physical copy of Mario Kart 8. This is a departure from most other system bundles which usually seem to include a download code for the game rather than a physical copy. This bundle will cost £249.99 but Nintendo is also offering a £299.99 bundle which will include everything listed as before with the addition of a GamePad protector, Wii U racing wheel and an extra Wii remote.

There are two variant types of the £299.99 bundle which either includes accessories themed in either red and white to represent Mario or green and white to represent Luigi. In addition to this, a Yoshi and Peach themed Wii remote have been announced. The new remotes can be seen below.

While the bundle is currently only slated to release in Europe, there is still a chance that these same bundles could arrive stateside. Mario Kart 8 launches on May 30th in both the U.S. and Europe.
