Blue shell!

Happy Mario Kart 8 launch day, everybody! To celebrate this momentous event, we've decided to do an unboxing video for the Limited Edition version of the game, which features an accursed blue shell and — of course — a copy of the game itself. It's rather good, as you'll know if you've already perused our Mario Kart 8 review.

Like so many things in the Nintendo Life office, this particular unboxing doesn't go exactly according to plan. We're still trying to track down Tom, who isn't answering his phone and appears to have fled the country.
