A Mario Kart 8 Wii U console bundle and two new character-themed Wii Remotes are slated to launch in Europe alongside the racing title on May 30, Nintendo U.K. announced this morning.

The £249.99 Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack — Special Edition hardware bundle includes a 32GB black Wii U Premium console, black GamePad controller, the Wii U's sensor bar and a physical copy of Mario Kart 8.

Nintendo U.K. is also offering two more game bundles for £299.99 each that add a GamePad cover protector, Wii U Racing Wheel and an additional Wii Remote to the above list of goods. Both are character-themed: one includes red accessories tailored to suit Mario, while the other includes Luigi-green accessories.

Additionally, a new Yoshi-themed Wii Remote and the previously-announced Princess Peach Wii Remote will be available alongside the game. The Peach remote is pink, while the Yoshi remote is the same soft green and white as the tiny dinosaur and is decorated with Yoshi eggs.

Currently, these bundles and remotes have been announced for Europe only. Polygon has reached out to Nintendo to ask if they will also be available in North America. European players can check out the trailer below from Nintendo U.K. detailing all bundle and accessory options available to them for Mario Kart 8.
