Mario Kart 8 is poised to be one of the biggest games of this Summer and definitely one of Nintendo’s dark horses for the Wii U when it releases at the end of the month. Some of you might have even seen the limited edition that was floating around for other regions that included a blue koopa shell statue. Well, good news, as it turns out the bundle will be landing in America with the release of the game, but only available at the Nintendo World Store in New York.
While many karting fans may be a bit disappointed by the super limited release of the game, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Nintendo giving more Wii U titles exclusive versions and releases this way given how narrow the audience is for the system right now. Probably not best to flood the market with giant special editions if there’s no demand, eh?
Mario Kart 8 releases May 30th with a special launch even on the 29th at the Nintendo World Center in Rockefeller Plaza.
