Celebrate the launch of MK8 with ‘Mario’s Canadian Karting Day’

Nintendo has announced that they will be hosting a Canadian-only event called ‘Mario’s Canadian Karting Day’ where fans get to go-kart, on a real racing track! The go karting event takes place on May 31st from 11am to 5PM, and in two locations, Toronto and Montreal. The first 500 people who show up to either location get a free kart race! Everyone who attends will have the chance to play Mario Kart 8 and win awesome Mario Kart prizes which include various Nintendo merchandise, karting vouchers and more! You’ll also be able to take pictures with famous Nintendo mascots. Plus, if you’re a Club Nintendo member, you’ll get a free Mario Kart 8 tee if you attend the event!

If you’re not in Montreal or Toronto, no worries! Best Buy is hosting Mario Kart 8 demos all over Canada on May 24th and the first 50 people to play the game get a free gift card to a local go-kart track.
