With the release of Mario Kart 8 just a month and a half away, we’ve seen more information surface about playable characters and now, a French gaming blog is reporting that a Mario Kart 8 special bundle will be released. Right now Europe is the ‘confirmed’ region for this rumor, but it’s probably safe to say if this one does turn out to be true the United States will see something similar as well.
This bundle includes a black 32GB Wii U with the game, as well as a 7 day trial for Wii Karaoke U. While this is a rumor and not yet confirmed, Mario Kart 8 will be the biggest title released on the Wii U until Super Smash Bros. gets here, so it’s not hard to imagine that Nintendo will want to capitalize on the game’s popularity in order to try and sell more Wii U consoles.
Still, since this is a rumor and unconfirmed, be skeptical about it until any of the official Nintendo channels say anything. Remember that spectacular Year of Luigi 2DS that turned out to be a custom mod and not an official release?
Thanks for the tip, Jake!
