The lights are on
When Mario Kart 8 releases on May 30, gamers will have the choice to pick it up in a bundle that includes the game, a system, and other goodies.
Nintendo announced via a Nintendo Direct that the Deluxe bundle includes the game, the Wii U, a red racing wheel, and red Remote Plus controller for $329.99.
The company has also announced an offer for a free game. If you buy Mario Kart 8 and register it with Club Nintendo before July 31 you get to pick one free digital game: New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, and Wii Party U.
Our Take:Those games are nothing to sneeze at, and obviously we'd love it if Nintendo continued to give away extra digital games with its big releases.
