Mario Kart 8′s Limited Edition Bundle is coming to North America after all, albeit with a catch.
Well that's just great. While I would drop the money to buy this in a heartbeat, turns out you can only get it in store. I can't even buy it online, how stupid is that.
What do you expect from Nintendo? I mean, they pretty much do their own thing regardless of how much sense to makes. One of my favorite was when people were hanging out outside of Best Buy to get the Pikachu 3DS XL only to learn BB wasn't selling it. xD
lol, that would suck. It's just a shame. I know a lot of people here in NA would get that bundle in a heartbeat, but for those of us who don't live in NYC, getting to the Nintendo World store is sort of hard. Shame, because these things will sell for a fortune on ebay.
Yeah how dare they not support your anti-social ways! That local multiplayer option is outrageous too, inviting friends over and socializing.... Get over it, it's for their stores which there aren't a lot of them. I can't get it either without having to drive 3 hours, I want this game but not 3 hours of driving and $100 worth of gas or the trip both ways want the game.
"which there aren't a lot of them" - there is one. It's in NYC. It's just a shame that all of Europe can get this bundle, but in NA only people in NYC can get it.
Incidentally my friends and I are now planning a trip to go to NYC for this event. It's a shame no one else can get the game, but what did anyone expect? USA fans haven't been getting ANY bonuses as of late.
well I'm Canadian, so automatically I am $hit out of luck, lol.
This should've been available online. bad decision NoA.
I don't understand why the store doesn't have an online shop...
Nintendo has their own dedicated online shop. It would be kind of redundant to have two online Nintendo stores.
Maybe primarily for hardware, but what about merchandise? Yes there is Club Nintendo, but that is only a rewards program.
So you're telling that the one of the biggest games of the ENTIRE year for the Wii U is getting an awesome bundle that could potentially sell a huge amount of consoles is only available in one store in one state? Not smart Nintendo...
They already have a game + console bundle though. This is just the game plus a plastic trophy.
And let the scalping and insane prices start to show up on ebay......sigh...
I live in NYC too bad I have a wii u already ...
It's not a Wii U bundle. It's the UK Limited Edition copy that comes with the blue shell trophy and the game. :)
@random thanks I thought it was a console bundle ...I notice it's the game bundle now
This IS stupid, imagine how many they could sell if they didn't limit it to a store the rest of the country doesn't have access to, BUT whomever gets to pick one of these up should, if they never release it to other markets the rarity and price will definitely go up in value, like the Uncharted 2 Dagger that came with the special edition, I've seen those sell for upwards for $2,000 USD, so if you have the option definitely grab this package.
Gamestop is also selling Mario Kart 8 bundles. So it's not exclusive to one store!
Sold out already !!
