UK pre-order bonus for me. Looks pretty damn cool. Don't really care much for cards personally.

Is the blue shell only for preorders or can you get the limited edition normally as well, as was the case with TLOZ: Wind Waker HD ?

@KBFloYd:

Thanks, but I'm not going to bother then. Eventhough I'm looking forward to the game, I'm not going to pre-order.

i c...is it because they charge you right away? you are not buying at launch?

well...maybe you can get one at ebay when it releases?

i don't know much about mario kart, but i know that blue shell = win.

played last time on SNES. i'd love to try and see wether it's still relevant.

I hope the US gets something. I'd actually be content with the spiky shell.

Nah, it's because I already pre-ordered way too many games lately, and I normally never do that :p

I will be getting the game at launch though. And if i see a limited edition there, I might get it.

The blue shell has its own culture, lol

I personally don't mind it as long as it doesn't happen a few minutes before the finish line.

Your name is MarioKart64Fan and you're complaining about a Blue Shell and Storm cloud. Irony

Everyone bought it, that's why it was out of stock for months before it actually launched and I have never seen one in a store.

Reggie offered to include an 8 by 10 of his raging boner dressed up like Cranky Kong, signed, to North American gamers who pre-order but Nintendo's distribution managers said that retail outlets refused to participate, so blame them.
