So! Interested yet? Here’s a Mario Kart 8 information dump that Elizabeth compiled for us last week – remember, if you pick up a copy of Mario Kart 8 and register on Club Nintendo by July 1st, you’ll get another Wii U game completely free!

In the US, choose from New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, or Wii Party U.  Europe gets a wider variety of titles to pick up, including the NA offerings as well as Sonic: Lost World, Game & Wario, The Wonderful 101, and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

Mark your calendars – all of this is racing your way on May 30th.
