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 set to drop on May 30th.
This only counts for the digital version of Mario Kart 8 though, and only on the same Wii U console. If you're wondering whether or not Super Mario Kart holds up -- it does -- especially if you have a few retro-inclined friends to play with.
