Rumor Time: Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle Racing Its Way

Rumor Time: Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle Racing Its Way
What is widely considered a smart Strategy by Nintendo to rejuvenate the Wii U - the Big N could be considering a Mario Kart 8 Premium Wii U Bundle for the near future. The rumor originated from Gameblog France. According to their source - the Mario Kart 8 Bundle will include a 32GB Wii U Console, a copy of Mario Kart 8 and 7 days Free Trial of Karaoke U. In addition to the information - Gameblog France has included a nice image of the packaging of the Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle. A Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle was inevitable at one point during the Wii U's lifetime - however - I suspect this Bundle will be available from Day One - considering the Wii U needs all the help to sell well. In my opinion, it is imperative that Nintendo bundle Mario Kart 8 with the Wii U - MK8 has system seller written all over it - therefore - having the game already packed in will surely push consumers to buy the Wii U.

Two Unnannounced Mario Kart 8 Items Revealed

Two Unnannounced Mario Kart 8 Items Revealed
A good forum buddy of mine - has uncovered something peculiar during the latest round of Mario Kart 8 information from Nintendo. As shown in the screenshot - two new unannounced items have been revealed: a Speaker Item and the Lucky 8. The first item appears to be a horn/speaker block item - we can assume that it will produce sound - however, speculating about the game effect will be of no use. The second one is a little obvious - I suspect it is the Lucky Eight - an upgrade from the item Lucky Seven from Mario Kart 7. This time around - I believe eight items can be used instead of seven. Unfortunately, no other information can be derived from the screenshot. Despite the explosion of information yesterday - it seem Mario Kart 8 does have more secrets that have yet to be revealed. Let the hype train begin. Thanks T-bone For more information on Mario Kart 8 stay informed at Mii-gamer.

Kit and Chrysta (I think that is her name; I apologize) from the  Ninty Treehouse has uploaded a new "Nintendo Minute" featuring Mario Kart 8 and the many visually stunning new courses. To be honest - they are not very good at the game - or simply too occupied with talking and informing the audience. httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOPDqh4etiE   Source: Nintendo Everything for the screenshot For more information on Mario Kart 8 stay informed at Mii-gamer.

Mario Kart 8 Developers On Customizing Items and Balance

Mario Kart 8 Developers On Customizing Items and Balance
"Item balance" is, perhaps, one of the most contested topics concerning the Mario Kart series. To be more specific - the Blue Shell grinded many fans gears - if you know what I mean. In Mario Kart 7 - players could customize races to have only have certain items (in the form of communities) - therefore no Blue Shells. While, it was a welcome addition - it was fairly limited in execution. Fortunately, Nintendo might have a system for players to customize what items are used in races. Speaking to IGN, Mario Kart 8 Director Kosuke Kobuki and Producer Hideki Konno hinted that there could be a system for cutomization. Kobuki explained that Mario Kart 8 will have the system present in MK7, but will have a little more. "There was some item customization in Mario Kart 7, in that you could choose to have a mushroom-only race or shell-only race. We're going to have that plus a little bit more, actually, in Mario Kart 8," Kobuki explained. He continued: "I think we're going to be ...
