Either this box art (found at gameblog.fr) is fake, or we're about to see a Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle soon. Or at least Europe, as this features European ratings logos.
We have no idea where they got the art from, but if it's...

As an institution within the videogame racing genre, Mario Kart has always been an example of what arcade style racing is all about. Focusing on simple, pick up and play gameplay, while still offering high level skill based action, the Mario Kart series has been going strong for over twenty years; and it doesn't seem like it'll stop any time soon.
Now, the series is finally taking its first steps onto an HD platform, and after spending about an hour of playtime with it, I just don't see how they can go back after this. I'm just going to come right out and say it: Mario Kart 8 is one gorgeous game.
As the first full HD release of the series, the developers at Nintendo went the extra mile with creating a game that is visually spectacular, but also the most content rich game of the series.
The UK is getting Super Mario Kart by way of the Wii U Virtual Console on March 27th, and there's a deal in tow. If you buy the game before June 30th, you'll get a £5.49 discount on the upcoming Mario Kart 8, which is s...
Nintendo of Europe has announced yet another Mario Kart 8 promotion, in the form of a Wii U Collector's Edition that's set to drop on May 30th. It's a pretty straight-forward bundle, as it comes with the game itself in physi...
To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99.
The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-road use. Most important of all, this thing plays sounds from Mario Kart. Hot damn!
I want to see videos of some kids' years being made.

With four retro tracks from the annals of Mario Kart history returning in Mario Kart 8, GameXplain has gone through the trouble of piecing together a head-to-head comparison video that pits the originals against their HD upg...
The Koopalings will join the otherwise familiar roster of racers in Mario Kart 8, Nintendo revealed today as a part of its livestream presentation. You'll get your first chance to go behind the wheel with Bowser's seven minions when the title releases for Wii U on May 30.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata just dropped a load of information to reassure shareholders that he had a plan to save the company from ruin. A lot of his ideas are really interesting. One of them was not. Mario Kart 8 is being released in May, guys. Not a particularly mind-blowing reveal, but it's important news all the same.
It makes sense that Nintendo would throw a little game talk into their otherwise OS/Smartphone/Infrastructure/Online Storefront focused presentation, as games is the one place where Nintendo always manages to pull in money. While the Wii U hasn't sold a ton yet, it does have a pretty impressive attach rate, with Super Mario 3D World, Wii U Party, and Wind Waker HD all selling over a million units with less than a year on the market. That means that on average, about one of six Wii U owners bought those three titles. Nintendo is surely hoping to keep that software momentum going with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in February and then Mario Kart 8 a few months later.
We already knew that Mario Kart 8 will get a simultaneous global release (like Pokemon X/Y), which will help consolidate marking power and make for a nice selling point right out of the game. Knowing that I can play against strangers in France on day one is pretty neat. Will the game go on to sell 24+ million units like Mario Kart Wii did? It will be fun to find out!
It's no secret that Nintendo puts a lot of love into their games, but I had no idea they had gone this far with my favorite mascot racer, Mario Kart: Double Dash.
Thanks to another informative video from the folks over at Ga...
Did the latest Mario Kart 8 trailer earlier this month get you excited for the game's inevitable 2014 release, but leave you curious on how each displayed track is raced? Well if the answer to that is yes, then the above vid...
With everything going on in this Mario Kart 8 trailer, I'm once again left confused as to why no one came up with a more memorable title for the game. Regardless, it's looking great as ever, and should be yet another convinc...
Are you suffering from one of the winter storms that recently hit, burying your home in feet of snow? If so, this won't technically help you, but it may remind you of some of the classic beach tunes from past games in the Mario Kart series.
Remixed by Benjamin Briggs, the three tracks here are available on BandCamp for however much you want to pay, even if that means you just want to grab the songs for free. You can give them a listen below, and if you like what you hear and are feeling generous, you're welcome to toss a donation Ben's way.
Regrettably, I've not yet had the privilege of playing Namco Bandai's Mario Kart arcade games. This has been especially painful for Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, which looks so damned good. Unlike its predecessors, this machine wo...
