MarioKart 8 - May the Karts Be With You

As you should know, Mario Kart 8 releases for Wii U on May 30th. The game by itself should be enough to warrant a purchase. But Nintendo is making it extra sweet, especially if you are new to the Wii U fold.

If you buy Mario Kart 8 and register it on Club Nintendo any time before July 31st, Nintendo of America will give you a download code for a game of your choice. Pick from Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros. U, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, or Wii Party U. What a deal!

But wait! There's more! Nintendo is releasing a new Mario Kart Wii U bundle. It comes with the 32GB Deluxe Wii U console and gamepad, MarioKart 8, a red Wii Wheel, and a Mario-themed Wii Remote, all for $329.99. Plus, you can still get the free game mentioned above if you register before July 31st. So get a Wii U, remote, 2 games, and wheel for only $329.99. If you don't have a Wii U already, then there is absolutely no reason to pass up on this deal.

Let's compare this to other systems. If you bought an Xbox One, you would spend $500 for the system with no games. If you bought a PS4, you would spend $400 for the system with no games. If you buy this Wii U bundle, you will spend $330 and get the system, an extra remote, and two games (and these are good games, too). Not to mention that Smash Bros. for Wii U will be out later in the year. And I should even have to mention that the Wii U already has a lot of great games like Mario 3D World, NES Remix 1 & 2, Game & Wario, Wonderful 101, and more.

Seriously. Quick being a dingus and buy this game and this bundle!

And just in case you wanted more reasons to get this game, here in Nintendo's pitch in the form of an entertaining and goofy Nintendo Direct.

May 30th will be a great day. Tell me when you get the game and we can race online and I will beat you and then make fun of you. It'll be a great time for one of us!
