Nintendo is hoping for big things when Mario Kart 8 lands later this month. Mario Kart is one of the most popular games that Nintendo has in its catalog and if any game is likely to drive gamers to buy the Wii U, Mario Kart 8 is it. Nintendo has announced a new Mario Kart 8 bundle that will be perfect for those who don’t have the Wii U console already.
The bundle will include a Wii U Deluxe Set, Mario Kart 8 game, a red Mario Wii Wheel accessory, and a red Mario Wii Remote Plus controller. The bundle will sell for $329.99 making it almost as much as a PS4. I think at that price the bundle will be a hard sale to gamers who aren’t specifically itching for kart racing action.
People who buy Mario Kart 8 in the bundle or at retail will get a free download code for another game once they register. Registration has to happen by July 31 and the code is good for New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD or Wii Party U. The Mario Kart 8 bundle will launch May 30.
