Nintendo announced a new “Mario Kart 8” bundle for the Wii U that will come with the upcoming game, a red Wii Wheel and a red Mario Wii Remote Plus, the game publisher announced via press release today.

The bundle is set to retail for $329.99 and will be available on May 30.

“Everyone loves Mario Kart,” Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing said in today’s release. “It’s a franchise that brings people together for fun at a family gathering, a frenzied race against friends or just an afternoon break at the office. The numerous new features of Mario Kart 8 make this the most ambitious version yet, and one that will have players of all skill levels racing for the checkered flag.”

In addition to new bundle, Nintendo announced another offer as well. Those who buy “Mario Kart 8” and register the game on their Club Nintendo account before July 31 will get a eShop code to download “New Super Mario Bros. U,” “Pikmin 3,” “The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD” or “Wii Party U.” The code will only be available to those who purchase “Mario Kart 8” in the bundle or via the Nintendo eShop.
