Limited edition Mario Kart Wii bundle on the way

Nintendo is to launch a new Wii console bundle featuring the multi-million-selling smash hit Mario Kart Wii.

The new limited edition bundle launches in Europe at the end of November 2010 and packs in a black Wii with a matching Wii Remote Plus, Nunchuk and Wii Wheel, as well as a copy of the game.

Mario Kart Wii has become a firm family favourite since its 2008 launch, with its anarchic racing action proving popular enough to shift 24 million copies worldwide.

In addition to the mascot racer, the bundle will include the standard pack-in Wii Sports disc, as well as a pre-installed Virtual Console copy of the original Donkey Kong game.

The new bundle is being launched to celebrate the 25th anniversary of gaming legend Mario, whose breakthrough adventure Super Mario Bros came out in 1985.

Nintendo is also marking the occasion by releasing Super Mario All-Stars: 25th Anniversary Edition this month, a compilation title featuring four of Mario's greatest adventures.
