Update: Nintendo of America has confirmed it is releasing in the US a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set bundle that includes a Wii U Deluxe Set system, a Mario Kart 8 game, a red Mario Wii Wheel accessory and a red Mario Wii Remote Plus controller, all retail price of $329.99.
Original Story: Nintendo U.K. has revealed that a Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle will be launching in Europe on May 30.
The bundle will include a copy of Mario Kart 8, a black remote, gamepad, sensor bar, and system.
In addition, Europe will be receiving two new Wii remotes – Princess Peach which sports an all pink look and Yoshi which is green. These two new remotes joins the Mario and Luigi remotes that released last year.
Unfortunately, Nintendo has not official announced that the bundle or newly themed remotes will make an appearance in the U.S. However, we anticipate them to since Nintendo is accustomed to bundles more than other competitors.
We have reached out to Nintendo for comment relating to a U.S. release and will keep you updated as we move closer to the Mario Kart 8 launch.
