Nintendo wants your Mario Kart 8 highlights on TV

Nintendo has teamed up with the United Kingdom channel E4 in an interesting promotion for upcoming Wii U game Mario Kart 8.  UK gamers can enter their karting highlights (which can be taken and edited directly within the game itself) into a special competition from May 30th to June 2nd.  Those that do have a chance to have their highlight run with their name on it on the channel during a prime time commercial break (8:10pm, to be exact).  The five winning participants will also receive a “real life Mario Kart cup”, though no pictures or size dimensions of the cup are given.

lol jk, there's no flattering angle for Bowser.

Make sure to get the most flattering angle!

Interestingly, these winning reels will also be used to promote another contest of sorts:  A contest to win a Wii U system.  Having real player footage of Mario Kart 8 is sure to attract more attention than a typical contest commercial, at least.

It’ll be interesting to see what reels are chosen when they go live on June 2nd!
