Nintendo also announced that those who buy Mario Kart 8 and register the game with Club Nintendo before July 31 will receive an eShop download code any one of the following games: New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD or Wii Party U. The offer also applies to those who purchase the Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle.

That's a pretty good deal if you don't already have a Wii Mote+.

Do you think you Sheep can consolidate your MK8 threads into 1-2 threads instead of flooding the board like this is the Nintendo boards?

I know you're desperate for sales (and attention for the struggling Wii U) but no Cow, Lemming or Hermit flood the board with 5-7 threads for the same game the way you are doing.

It's not like there are other games coming out soon that need the space.

I'd be more excited for an actual collector's edition of the game. Even if it was something simple like a nicer box and art book.

@hitmanactual: A free game and a Wii Remote plus. A least, read the article.

To be clear, the free game is digital only, but it doesn't matter whether you get Mario Kart 8 digitally or at retail

Might be worth it for the wii-mote...they can keep the stupid steering wheel.

I'm going to guess that MK8 will be a digital download version?
