Sm Mario Mario Kart 8 Bundles Revealed

Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundles Revealed

Mario Kart 8 (now just over a month away) was always going be a way to get a few new Wii U owners out there, and Nintendo's just increased the number of ways you can make that happen by revealing three new Wii U bundles.


As you can see in the trailer above, the Premium Wii U can now be bought with a disc copy of Mario Kart 8 inside - but there are two others available exclusively from the Nintendo UK Online Store.






The Team Mario and Team Luigi bundles come with the Premium Wii U with a special edition GamePad in your chosen brother's colour of choice, a copy of Mario Kart 8, a themed Wii Wheel, a themed Wii Remote Plus, the Prima strategy guide for the game and a snazzy hat.

Not to be left out, Nintendo's also announced that Princess Peach and Yoshi special edition Wii Remote Plus controllers will be released on the same day, 30 May.

There's something unsettling about seeing a dexterous Yoshi hand up close like that.

Is that a cover on the gamepad? The white areas make it look a bit tacky. The rest is cool.

Looks like it's some kind of faceplate, but the official term they used in the release was "special edition GamePad". If it is the actual GamePad and not a cover or sticker, it looks pretty silly. It would have looked better if they'd adopted the same colour scheme as the Mario Wii remote.

The gamepad is weird if it's not a faceplate. It has to be. Oh well, doesn't matter to me since I already have a Wii U. I know someone who might be a little upset as he's obsessed with Luigi and he just bought a Wii U. xP

Edit: It is, in fact, a faceplate.

That premium pack is sexy enough by itself, now you tell me that there could be a special Mario themed GamePad faceplate? Damn, I bought my Wii U at the worst time.

If this doesn't make its way to North America, Reggie's body will have some explaining to do.

Unless we get a Smash bundle instead.
