Mario Kart 8 Gets a New Bundle With Wii U
Nintendo of America announces a new bundle for the Wii U. Even after over a year since release, the Big N is still advertising for Mario Kart 8.
It is Mario’s 30th anniversary so I guess Nintendo really wanted to give a Mario-filled package for fans who haven’t had the chance to enjoy Mario on Wii U yet. So, to rectify this, this bundle gives you the complete Mario Kart 8 experience on Wii U in preparation for the release of Super Mario Maker. Of course, you can check out our review of the game right here. Mario races, jumps and has practiced more career jobs than any man I know and now, he can be your guinea pig as you create the most impossible levels he has ever seen.
Super Mario Maker releases on September 11th exclusively on Wii U of course. Will you be picking the game up on release? Happy 30th Mario!
A new ongoing configuration of the Wii U console that includes a pre-installed version of the Mario Kart 8 game as well as a Nintendo eShop download card for the two Mario Kart 8 DLC packs is now on sale in retail stores across the country. The console is available at a suggested retail price of $299.99.
Later this week, on the 11th of September, Nintendo will launch Super Mario Maker for Wii U. Using the Wii U GamePad controller, players can quickly and easily create their own original Super Mario Bros. levels using items, enemies, graphical styles and even power-ups from four classic Mario games. These levels can be easily uploaded online to share with players all over the world. Game concepts that were never possible before in a Super Mario Bros. game are now possible in Super Mario Maker – and players are in control of it all.
