With all the hooha with the more recently released consoles and the mega sales of the PS4 it seems Nintendo is out to gain back some fans with the release of the forthcoming Mario Kart 8 , released in the UK and Europe on May 30th.
Not only are there some great Wii U bundles announced which include the game ,but Supermarket Tescoe has already announced it has a price point for the bundle of £219.00 ,a saving of £30 on the suggested price.
Nintendo themselves have a Exclusive Wii U bundle which includes a Red or Green Wii Remote ,Steering Wheel and Mario or Liugi Cap as well.
But Existing Wii U owners need not feel left out as as well as the normal edition of the game ,there is a Limited Edition Blue Shell edition available from most retailers .
Certain online retailers are offering there own promotions to with Free T-shirts ,Keyrings and more ,just visit your preffered online retailer to see what their offering.
But the big news for existing owners is if you buy Mario Kart 8 on DISC or DOWNLOAD from May 30th to 31st July 2014 and you register it on Club Nintendo your receive a download code for a free Wii U game ,from a choice of ten. And where not talking some cheap eshop games here.
On offer are ttles like Monster Hunter 3,Wii U Party, Wind Waker Wii U,Sonic Lost World,Pikmin 3,W101 ,Nintendo Land ,New Super Mario Wii U,Sonic and Mario at Sochi and Wario.
Which will you be claiming?
Your have until the 31st of August to claim your title to.So ifyou have no spare space on your system ,your have time to aqquire that hard drive you been holding out on.
One thing for sure May 30th can't come fast enough ,and i wonder how Sony and Microsoft will try and counter the Mario Kart 8 bandwagon or will they wait till E3 to unleash their claws?
Of note the London MCM Comic Con falls on the weekend before the release of the game and Nintendo usually have a big presence at the show ,so your be able to get hands on at the show I'm sure.
