Yesterday Nintendo announced the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition bundle, the announcement was made through a new video on the Nintendo UK YouTube channel which showcases exactly what is included in the £60 collectors edition.
The main addition to the bundle is the spiny shell which will arrive on a stand inside the box. However, if you pre-order from GAME UK you will also receive a Mario Kart 8 branded Wii U racing wheel peripheral.
However, if collector edition’s aren’t your thing and you’re more interested in getting the game cheaper then Nintendo is running its own eShop offer, those who buy the SNES Super Mario Kart game from the eShop as a Wii U Virtual Console title, will get £5.49 off of the digital version of the game, although eShop prices aren’t always that enticing. Mario Kart 8 releases on the 30th of May for the Wii U and will include up to twelve player online as well as all new maps.
KitGuru Says: Collector/Limited editions aren’t usually my thing but that GAME offer doesn’t seem that bad, are any of our Wii U owning readers going to pick up Mario Kart 8?
