Not so long ago there was a rumour of a Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle that seemed entirely feasible; the leaked box art was in line with the standards of EU packaging, and the logic behind the system was obvious. Nintendo of Europe has now stepped out to formally announce the Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack – Special Edition bundle that's coming to stores on 30th May, which includes a disc copy of the game.
The bundle includes the expected content.
32GB Black Wii U + GamePad
Disc copy of Mario Kart 8
Nintendo's official UK store is listing this at the standard retail price of £249.99, while retailer GAME is yet to add a listing.
In addition, it's confirmed that not only will Europe receive the Princess Peach Wii Remote Plus on 30th May, but also the Yoshi limited edition Wii Remote Plus pictured below.
Nintendo of America is yet to announced either the Mario Kart 8 Wii U or the Yoshi Wii Remote Plus
