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.
