Hey guys thought id start a thread to see who will be getting mario karts? I can't wait to blow the dust off the wii u and get into some mario kart action. I loved mario kart 64 a well as played super mario kart and a bit of the wii version, this is a bit of a no brainer for me:)

If there is a bit of interest be great to run some community nights :)

EB exclusive I think. That's where I got mine from. I see that the Dunedin store has a sold out sign up now though.

i will definately be grabbing it at launch to grab the free game    although im not sure what game i'll grab a code for, i was thinking sonic lost worlds but the reviews have being pretty harsh on it.

 

might just grab Monster hunter, played the crap out of it on Wii but would happily roll another character and stomp some dinosaur faces again

Chances are it will be UK and won't work. All the games I've got through them have had UK codes that don't register with the Australian club nintendo. Maybe email them and check . . . Although I wonder if could just make a UK club account and register to get the code, although the codes may be regionally specific too.

Be careful MA don't sell you a UK copy either lol, they do that sometimes.

 

A UK copy's code wont work on our Club Nintendo, you'd have to make a UK account (both Club Nintendo and switch your Wii U to UK) then go to the UK eStore then the code would probably work and allow you to download the free game to your Wii U. You can't do this on 3DS anymore because of the NNID thing but you should still be able to use both UK and NZ accounts on a Wii U switching between them (by making a secondary Mii character who is set to UK).

 

Pretty hard to explain sorry if that made no sense.

 

Moral of the story, its most likely waaay easier to just get a NZ copy heh.

I just noticed on ozgameshop that they have a Mario Kart 8 listed as Australian and is shipped locally. Might be worth checking your pre-order and messaging them to change it if yours isn't listed as the Australian one.
