Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition confirmed for South Africa, pre-order bonuses revealed

Written by: / / 1 Comment


The release of Mario Kart 8 at the end of May is a big enough event by itself but Nintendo is upping the ante by announcing a limited edition version of the game for European territories along with a trio of pre-order bonuses.

The Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition comes with a blue Spiny Shell collector’s item and is currently priced at £59.99 on Amazon UK. Nintendo SA recently confirmed that this bundle will also be touching down in South Africa along with a selection of Mario Kart themed key rings which will be available as pre-order bonuses from participating online retailers. These include designs based on the Golden Dash Mushroom, Red Shell and Bullet Bill power-ups from the series.


Another Mario Kart 8 promotion headed our way soon will accompany the release of the SNES classic Super Mario Kart on the Wii U eShop on March 27th. Fans who purchase Super Mario Kart before June 30th will get a discount of R96 on the digital version of Mario Kart 8 providing that both purchases are made on the same Wii U console.

Mario Kart 8 will be released exclusively for Wii U on May 30th in North America and European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this highly anticipated kart racer and check out the trailer below for a closer look at the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition:
