The Mario Kart 8 television campaign appears to have finally kicked off

YouTube user Mariohenri90 has managed to record one of the Mario Kart 8 commercials that air on television in North America.

The commercial starts out as a video edited ‘upside-down test’ and the kicks it into high gear by featuring pure gameplay as the narrator explains what makes the game so incredible. A few of our forum users also reported seeing a similar commercial for Mario Kart 8 on television during the latest episode of Adventure Time on Cartoon Network.

The Mario Kart 8 television campaign has already kicked off in Japan as seen by the televisions spots uploaded by Nintendo of Japan below.

In April, Nintendo made a statementing explaining that they were commited to pushing Mario Kart 8 for the entire year.

Bundles for Europe and North America have already been announced and a number of promotional deals can already be found at retailers from GameSpot, to BestBuy, to even Dell.
