Nintendo of Europe has lifted the lid on a special Wii U hardware bundle to coincide with the release of Mario Kart 8 on May 30th. The Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack includes a copy of the game along with a black 32GB Wii U Premium console bundled with a black Wii U GamePad controller and Sensor Bar. Nintendo South Africa has confirmed that this hardware bundle will retail for a recommended retail price of R4 499 and will be available in limited quantities at selected retailers.

Also out on May 30th are two limited edition Wii Remote Plus controllers themed on two popular Nintendo characters who will appear in Mario Kart 8: Princess Peach and Yoshi. These additional controllers are bound to come in handy if you plan to play Mario Kart 8 with family or friends in local multiplayer.

If you already own a Wii U and want to celebrate the launch of Mario Kart 8 in style, there’ll also be a limited edition version of the game that comes with a blue Spiny Shell collector’s item as well as a selection of Mario Kart themed key rings as pre-order bonuses.

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 be sure to let us know which version of the game you plan to pick up in the comments below.
