The Awesome Hori Mario Kart 8 Accessories Seem To Hit The Final Straight For North America

Happy times

Not so long ago we had the happy news that Hori's rather attractive Mario Kart 8-themed GamePad skins and wheels to Europe. It seems that the accessory company — likely with distribution assistance from Nintendo — is also bringing its goodies to North America, too.

The Mario and Luigi themed Wii wheels and GamePad skins have popped up on Amazon.com, though unlike the equivalent pre-orders in the UK, for example, release dates are veering from 30th May, with the game, into June. Nevertheless it's little surprise that these attractive extras appear to be heading to such a vital region in gaming sales.

Details will no doubt solidify in the coming days and weeks, but are you tempted to pick any of these up?

Thanks to Ryan Millar for the tip.
