Dude, you are not just getting a Dell!

The fine folks over at the computer company, Dell, are offering a nice treat to those Mario Kart fans who preorder the hotly anticipated next entry in the series, Mario Kart 8.   If you preorder the game from them, you will receive a $25 egift card , which will be sent out via email after ten to twenty days.  Whether or not that is before or after the game releases remains to be seen.  When shopping on their site you will see the Mario Kart 8 gift card added to your shopping cart once you add the game to it.

Another nice detail is that all copies of Mario Kart 8 will include a free digital game.  Among the choices in North America are New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, and Wii Party U.  Gamers in Europe will get an even bigger helping of a selection when they shop for the game.

Mario Kart 8 will hit North American shores on May 30 for Wii U.  Besides just the standard version, there will be also be special Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundles available which will include the system, game, a special racing wheel, and a Wii Remote Plus.
