Jorgejjvr, a member of the IGN message boards and a reader of My Nintendo News, has revealed that GameStop will soon be having Mario Kart 8 Wii U demo stations that will be playable from May 17th till May 18th. The store will also apparently be handing out Mario Kart 8 posters to those that pre-order the game. So if you want to play the gorgeous Mario Kart 8 before its May 30th release date it sounds like a trip to you local GameStop could be a good idea.
“I just got back from gamestop from paying mk 8 in full and buying a stylus that I needed. When I was paying for my things the guy at gamestop who I’m pretty good friends with told me that a Nintendo guy passed by not too long ago to set up Mario Kart 8 on their Wii U demo station but it won’t be unlocked until a later time, he didn’t know exactly when so he checked his email, and on it it said that it will be on May 17 and 18. And that they will also be handing posters for those that go and have it pre ordered. I asked him how anyone was supposed to know about this, how would I have known this unless I had shown up, and he said he also has flyers that he will be putting outside the store soon to advertise the event. This is awesome, and great on Nintendo’s side, I’m so there! I’ll get the practice needed to be ahead of you guys for the tourney haha but of course now that I’ve told you, you guys will probably go and play it too lol -.-“
