Mario Kart 8 presentation brings a free offer

Nintendo has published a new Nintendo Direct video focused on Mario Kart 8, revealing details on a new Mario Kart 8 promotion. 

Basically, if you buy the game on disc or over the Wii U eShop and register it on Club Nintendo between May 30 and July 31, you’ll get a download code for one of ten selected Wii U games. The list can be seen below.

Additional details in the broadcast include confirmation of 12 player online multiplayer which consists of four sections: Global, Regional, Friends and Rivals. Voice chat is also supported.

In addition gamers can post private and public tournaments online, and you can also download player ghosts. If you beat a Mario Kart 8 developer’s ghost you’ll get a bonus MiiVerse stamp.

Finally, Mario Kart TV was also introduced, giving players the chance to check out highlight reels from their races and tournaments. Clips can also be uploaded straight to YouTube or Miiverse from within the service.

It is between Mario BrosU and Monster Hunter3U. Leaning more towards Monster Hunter since it is more expensive

Well that got me to pre-order. If you have not played Wonderful 101, then make that your choice of free game. Going for Wind Wanker HD since I own W101 and Mon Hun, Nintendoland and NSMBU I was not a fan of.

I'll have to get Mario & Sonic or Wii Party U, already have the other 8 ;)

I'd choose Zelda out of that lot I think.

Surprised that they didn't offer 3D World instead of Mario BrosU

You could always give me an extra code Gloria

I could, or I could sell it on Ebay, or even just have a game myself.

They didn't offer 3D World because they still believe it can be a system seller apparently... despite all evidence to the contrary the past six months.

I will choose either Mario Bros U or Pikmin 3. Both I have been meaning to buy for ages.

Wow! That is insane :O Nintendo must be struggling with the Wii U. I was debating about cancelling my Mario Kart 8 and then they offered the free tee so I held on a bit longer but this makes it an insta-buy. Already have the best of the bunch; Zelda, Mario and Pikmin but so torn between the others.

Ninty always do stuff like this, it usually involves buying a console & not a game but they do do it

Yep, I've lost track of the free games I've had off Nintendo the last few years ;)
