As suggested by an anonymous source earlier this month, Nintendo have today confirmed that they will launch a ‘Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack – Special Edition’ Wii U hardware bundle to accompany the game’s arrival on May 30th.

The bundle’s contents will match those for similar editions, containing a black Wii U Premium console with 32GB storage, a black Wii U GamePad, Sensor Bar, and a copy of Mario Kart 8. This will be priced at £249.99, and is already available to pre-order from Nintendo UK’s official online store.

If you’re looking for even greater value, there are separate Mario and Luigi bundles priced at £299.99. These add in the character’s respective cap and additional Wii Remote Plus, as well as a GamePad protector, Wii U wheel, and official Mario Kart 8 guide.
