Mario Kart 8 launches on May 30, but if you want to make sure you have a copy reserved before then, your best bet is to pre-order. Amazon is usually my go-to place for recommending pre-orders, but they’re currently out of stock on Mario Kart 8 and there’s no telling when pre-orders will be open through them again. That being said, Newegg has you covered with Mario Kart 8, as they’re offering the pre-order along with a $5 promotional card to be used on anything else on their website. It’s not much of a deal, but some cash back is certainly better than none, especially now that Amazon appears to be out of stock for their pre-orders. local_offer mario kart 8 newegg Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. NintendoFan Mario Kart 8 is coming out May 30th not May 20th. Justin Lee Made a mistake. Corrected date. Deleted comment. No one would ever know. NintendoFan Yup. crocodileman94 ?? Ryudo9 Do they charge the day you order or the day it’s shipped? Tight on money this month and know some sites charge right away. darkcreap Amazon charges the day it is shipped. For other online stores, I don’t know. Ashley King I’m not sure about Newegg, but like darkcreap said Amazon doesn’t charge until the item ships. megamanultra they charge the day it’s shipped. Have a preorder for mk8 through them when it was $50 over the holiday season. Wooopigsooie Wow… I don’t usually pre-order games, but with the way MK8 is selling (at least on Amazon) I may have to. MerryBlind . Mario Kart 8 NEEDS 5-players local multiplayer with a 5th player on the GamePad screen. That would be a killer feature which would convince a whole a lot of people to buy a Wii U with Mario Kart. Hell they should even make it 6-players with 2 GamePad! It’s about time Nintendo gives us a game that uses 2 GamePads. Besides, Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed already proved 5-players was feasible; Nintendo has no reasons. Also, 6-players local would be a good reason to release a bundle including Mario Kart 8 + RED GamePad for 125$ or something. COME ON NINTENDO, you can give tremendous momentum to the Wii U just with that! DO IT.. Garrett Miller Problem with 2 gamepads is that the system would have to render to those extra displays, dropping the framerate down to 30. MerryBlind . Who cares??? Sure I really really really prefer 60fps, but every local multiplayer game ever has had to make sacrifices the more players are added. I’d take 6-players local multiplayer Mario Kart at 30fps anyday instead of max 4-players at 60fps. Also, imagine playing 3 players locally, but one player is on the TV, and the 2 others are on their respective GamePad! Everyone would have their own screen, but still be local!

CanadaGuy They don’t send the card information to you until 4 days after you are invoiced. Hene: No invoice==no gift card. Besides, if this worked and was exploited, it is called fraud. makkan im from europe here so newegg doesn’t say anything to me, but i will buy this game thats for sure.
