Nintendo announces Mario Kart 8 premium pack

We’re just a month away until it’s time to start your engines and go racing with Mario and friends. Nintendo has announced today that a Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack – Special Edition Wii U hardware bundle will release with the game on May 30.

This special edition comes with a black Wii U Premium console with 32 GB of storage packaged alongside a black Wii U GamePad controller, Sensor Bar and Mario Kart 8 game.

Mario Kart 8 will have 16 remixed classic courses, as well as 16 courses that are brand new to the series, both newcomers and veteran drivers alike will face fresh karting challenges with the added twist of a new antigravity feature allowing Mario and company to race upside down or up vertical surfaces.

Also, people looking to pick up Mario Kart 8 alongside a special collectible can also get their hands on a Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle, which comes complete with a Spiny Shell Collector’s Item alongside a physical copy of the game.

The Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle is available to pre-order while supplies last.

This could be one of the better games to come out for the Wii U this year.

    Got my Wii-U last month for my 18th Bday and am loving it there are tons more games on it that i am willing to play then on PS4 or Xbox. My PS3 gives it some competition but i dont like to many violent games so Wii-u and 3ds wins easily for me. I own 5 games so far NSMBU, NSLU, Just Dance 4, Injustce Gods Among us, Marvel avengers battle for earth, super mario 3d world, darksiders2 and scirbleunats unlimited. The only game i havent played so far is Marvel Avengers battle for earth because the other games are 2 good to get off. After that i want to get Pikmin3, The Wonderful101, Nintendo Land, Sonic Lost World, Lego City undercover, Rayman Legends, Need for speed most wanted, Game and wario, Batman Arkham City Armoured edition, origins, Blackgate DK Country Tropical freeze, Epic Mickey2 the Power of 2, Sonic all Stars racing transformed and many more then we have the games not even released yet: MK8, Super Smash Bros U, Bayenota2, X, Hyrule Warriors, The upcoming Zelda U, Watch dogs and Yarn Yoshi and much more the fact that i can list this many games that intrest me and there still be more proves that you guys have no idea what your talking about when you say the Wii-U has no games. When i was deciding beetwen a Wii-U and a PS4 the only games that intrest me on the PS4 are infamous second son and three upcoming games in KH3, Destiny and Batman Arkham Knight. To me the Wii-U is the Best console currently out on the market at this present time with the 3ds not far behind.
