Nintendo UK is planning on capitalizing on the inevitable success of Mario Kart 8 by announcing three new Wii U bundles: a premium pack, a Mario-themed bundle and a Luigi-themed bundle.

The premium pack is a Wii U console that comes with a physical copy of Mario Kart 8. However, the UK will also be getting two special Mario and Luigi-themed bundles. The packs (pictured below) comes with a Luigi/Mario Hat, Luigi/Mario Wii Remote Plus, Luigi/Mario Wii U Wheel, a Mario Kart 8 Game Guide and Luigi/Mario Wii U Gamepad protector, along with a copy of the game.
