There is a rumor floating around that the Big N will be releasing yet another Wii U bundle, this time including Mario Kart 8 and a free trial of Wii Karaoke U with its deluxe model console. It’s still a rumor at this point, but if it does come to fruition I’d expect it to cost the same as any other Wii U bundle — $299.99.

With Mario Kart Wii selling over 35 million units, it only makes sense for Nintendo to offer a bundle. I’m sure that a fair amount of people are waiting to pick up the console for Super Smash Bros. this winter, but Mario Kart 8 could be that one big title that Nintendo has been hoping for to draw more attention to the Wii U and less attention to its unimpressive sales figures.
If you don’t own a Wii U yet, would the rumored Mario Kart 8 bundle change your mind?
Mario Kart 8 releases on May 30th for the Wii U.

I’m not interested in the Wii U, which is probably a good thing. With no Wii Karaoke U the world will be spared from my terrible singing.
Lol, awww c’mon I bet you have honey in your voice!
Why no interest in the console, out of curiosity?
There aren’t any games on it that I really want. Perhaps if they make a Fire Emblem for it I’ll reconsider.
The Wii U is severely lacking an RPG, that’s for sure. Unless you count playing old stuff on the virtual console, there isn’t an RPG available at all.
Xenoblade was an amazing game on the Wii, so I have high hopes for X.. but who knows when that’s coming out. There was also a rumored Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei cross-over before Atlus had to be purchased up.
If you’re primarily in to RPG’s, I can see why you’d stay clear of the Wii U. Otherwise, if you’re in to platformers and unique action/adventure games, it has a lot to love.
The old trick with Nintendo, trying to up with their Mario collection games. Look’s great this game I heard will be released on 30 May 2014.
