Nintendo of Europe, and Australia, have announced that various Mario Kart 8 Wii U Premium Bundles will be released on May 30th.
The standard bundle will contain a black premium 32 GB Wii U, along with a copy of the game for the retail price of £249.99. As an alternative, if you want to splash out a bit more you can also pick up a Mario or Luigi premium bundle for £299.99.
These bundles come with:
- A Premium 32 GB Wii U
- A disc copy of Mario Kart 8
- A themed Wii Remote Plus
- A themed Wii Wheel
- A Mario or Luigi hat
- A themed Gamepad protector
- An official Game Guide by PRIMA
Nintendo of Europe have also announced that you’ll also be able to pick up Princess Peach and Yoshi themed Wii Remotes on the same day. Splendid.
These bundles have yet to be announced for North America, but if Nintendo sees sense then you should expect an announcement fairly soon, we hope. Regardless, this is a good move from NoE and should hopefully boost the sales of the Wii U, again we hope.
