Play & Win: Join The Grid for The UK Mario Kart 8 Tournament Rematch on Thursday

Another £120 eShop credit up for grabs

Just this past weekend we hosted a special UK Mario Kart 8 tournament in which eShop funds were up for grabs over the course of a 6 hour competition. In the end our planned three prizes — totalling £120 of credit — were split between three racers that hit the maximum score; that's quite an achievement whether in a room with others or battling a mix of real-world opponents and Hard CPU bots.

Our three winners are pictured below — their prizes are on the way soon.

Due to that tie, the Official Nintendo UK Online Store wants a rematch to try and find a runaway leader — it happens soon, on 31st July, and we're tweaking the rules.

What:

Once again, this is for UK readers. The top three qualifying players will receive a prize in the form of eShop credit kindly provided by the Official Nintendo UK Online Store.

  • 1st Place: £60 eShop credit
  • 2nd Place: £40 eShop credit
  • 3rd Place: £20 eShop credit

When:

The Tournament will take place this coming Thursday, 31st July 2014 between 5pm-9pm (UK). You can join the tournament at any time between 5pm and 9pm to complete your 16 races, up four from last time.

How to Enter:

Within the Mario Kart 8 Online menu select ‘Tournaments’ and ‘Enter Code’: 8439-5767-5951 — it's called NLife UK GP Rematch.

Once the tournament has been registered with your console you will be able to start racing once the tournament beings on Thursday 31st July at 5pm. You can join the tournament at any time before the closing time of 9pm.

Rules:

The tournament will have the following rules.

  • Code-only
  • 150cc
  • All items
  • All control methods
  • Hard CPU
  • 16 races
  • Group swapping every four races

You must compete using a UK Wii U and therefore have a ‘GB’ flag after your name in the final rankings to claim a prize. The top three racers who qualify for a prize should contact us via email (mk8@nintendolife.com) and include a photo of their GamePad/TV with their NNID in clear view.

If you're sharing a Wii U and want multiple players to compete and be eligible, you'll need to take turns — in single player online — in each Nintendo Network ID login. In other words, once a player has completed the tournament in their Wii U account you'll need to quit the game, switch to the second Nintendo Network ID and go through the Tournament again. Playing in two player-splitscreen online will only allow the main player — the Nintendo Network ID holder — to be eligible for the prizes.

Members of the Nintendo Life team are not eligible for prizes. All decisions by Nintendo Life are final. If you have any further questions please contact us.

Good luck.

Wait, what? you don’t have Mario Kart 8? Don't forget that the Official Nintendo UK Online Store offers a 30% discount on a Pro Controller when you buy the game.
