Nintendo looks set to unveil a Mario Kart Wii U console bundle, with artwork for the deal popping up online.

French site Gameblog reports that the console is due to arrive when the game launches across the US and Europe on May 30.

The box is reported to contain a standard old black Wii U Premium--that's the one with 32GB of storage--a copy of the game, and a one week trial of Nintendo's Wii U Karaoke app.

Nintendo has not officially confirmed the bundle, but its existence probably won't come as a whopping surprise. The company is no stranger to these sort of bundles, having released a similar deal for last year's The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. That bundle was released at the same $300 price as a standard Wii U, suggesting a sizeable discount could be in store for anyone currently mulling over whether to invest in a Wii U for the next Mario Kart game. I know I am!

Earlier this month it was revealed that Mario Kart 8 will feature 32 courses, with half of them entirely new.
