Today, Nintendo got first place, because they announced a Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition bundle that has a blue shell trophy as the main price. It’s a pun; the shell is responsible for taking out whoever is in first place, usurping the throne, as it were.
Anyway, Nintendo really wants you to know about it, because they sent out a ton of detailed artworks for this special figurine. Did you know that the official name for a blue shell is a Spiny Shell? Who calls it that, honestly?
Anyway, again, if you’ve wanted to get a good hard look at just about anything the bundle has, we’ll post all you need to see below. These shots are so detailed that you can see the logo engraved in the glass casing that keeps the shell aloft. Not a fan of promo shots? We removed it for you, since they had .psd files as well. A nice clear image is all you get. We care. There are even additional artworks, logos, shots of how the game is played in multiplayer; you name it. All of that, for you, right here below. You’re welcome.
Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition will release on the same day as the original Wii U launch, which is May 30, 2014.
