Get a free game when you buy Mario Kart 8

59 second read

My excitement for Mario Kart 8 is pretty well known at this point, and I’ll most certainly be picking the thing up on day 1. In a new Mario Kart 8 focused Nintendo direct today, the company revealed that the game will be getting 12 player online multiplayer, voice chat support (so you can tell those people who hit you with blue shells what you did to their mums last night) and user-created tournaments. It’ll also come with a free game.

Yes, that’s right. If you pick up Mario Kart 8 and register it on club Nintendo between May 30 and July 31, you’ll get a voucher to download one of ten pre-selected games for free.  They’re not rubbish games either. Check it out.


I have all but one of those games – and now I’ll be able to get it for nothing. Mario Kart 8 features 30 racers, a bunch of new tracks and new items – including something that can actually destroy the blasted blue shell. The gods have spoken.

Here’s the Mario Kart 8 Nintendo direct.

        Eish man, it’s a great game, but only gets rewarding after a slow ass start, I know.

        MH is very hard to get.. you need like 10 hours of it to even start enjoying it. Basically it was perfect for that drought of games last year lol. But when you do get it it’s pretty addictive.

        Anyway, regarding mariokart. This is still, and always will be the most fun you and a some buddies can have on a couch. I have never seen or played a game that even comes close.

        I’ll be getting W101!
