Mario Kart 8 Commercials are Fun-filled and Spiky Shell-free

These three amazing Nintendo commercials have got us quite hyped up for Mario Kart 8.

Nintendo has released three new commercials for Mario Kart 8 that depict some of the great new mechanics being added to the game. The first of these commercials, titled “Upside Down Test,” shows off the anti-gravity wheels that allow you to race upside down on ceilings and along walls horizontally. “Boomerang Test” shows off the back-and-forth offensiveness of the new Boomerang power-up. The final commercial, “Super Horn Test,” shows how the Super Horn item can not only stun nearby racers, it can also cancel out pesky items, like the Spiky Shell or Red Shell.

Lakitu will flash a green light for Mario Kart 8 to launch on May 30. A special Wii U bundle will come out on this day for $329.99 coming with Mario Kart 8, a special Mario-themed Wiimote and a Mario Kart racing wheel. Best Buy will be offering a special $10 debit card for those who pre-order the game. Lastly, anyone who buys Mario Kart 8 and registers it on the Club Nintendo website by July 31 will get a free digital download of one of the following Wii U digital games: New Super Mario Bros. UPikmin 3, Wii Party U or The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
