Super Mario Kart

Following the original Nintendo of Europe announcement, Nintendo Australia has now confirmed that Super Mario Kart will also be released on the Aussie Wii U Virtual Console on 28th March.

To celebrate the upcoming release of Mario Kart 8 and the VC version of the classic Super Nintendo game that started it all, Nintendo is offering Aussie fans a discount of AU$10.40 (NZD$13.60) on the eShop version of Mario Kart 8 (from 31st May until 30th June), if they purchase Super Mario Kart (available for $10.40) on the same Wii U console.

Like in Europe, Aussies will also receive the U.S. version of Super Mario Kart, meaning silky-smooth 60hz. It’s still currently unknown if owners of the Wii Virtual Console version of Super Mario Kart will be eligible for this promotion, if they purchase the classic game at an already reduced price.

So Aussies, will you bite and go with this digital promotion? Let us know in the comments.
