Nintendo has announced that a Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack – Special Edition Wii U hardware bundle will accompany the launch of Mario Kart 8 next month. The bundle will include a black Wii U Premium console with 32GB of storage packaged alongside a black Wii U GamePad controller, Sensor Bar, and the all-important Mario Kart 8 game disc.
With Mario Kart 8 set to feature 16 remixed classic courses, as well as 16 courses that are brand new to the series, both newcomers and veteran drivers alike will face fresh karting challenges with the added twist of a new antigravity feature allowing Mario and company to race upside down or up vertical surfaces. While the likes of Bowser’s minions, all seven of the pesky bunch, will be playable for the first time in Mario Kart history, experienced drivers such as Princess Peach and Yoshi have featured in all games in the series to date. Fans wishing to pay tribute to these two legendary racers can get their hands on new Wii Remote Plus Peach and Wii Remote Plus Yoshi controllers, both of which will release on the same day as Mario Kart 8.
The Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack – Special Edition Wii U hardware bundle will launch alongside Mario Kart 8 on the 30th May. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about the Mario Kart franchise.
