After strangely selling out about a week ago, Mario Kart 8 is available for pre-order once again on Amazon. You can reserve a copy here.

I’m still not sure why Mario Kart 8 “sold out” in the first place, since we’re not talking about a limited item. Still, all’s well that ends well!

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

6th March 2014 – With engines revving and gravity-defying courses awaiting, the Mushroom Kingdom’s finest racers are set to line up on the starting grid on 30th May 2014 when Mario Kart 8 launches on Wii U. But in the meantime, whether or not you know your Blooper from your Bullet Bill, Nintendo has today announced two options to get your karting skills up to speed in the form of the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle and a Super Mario Kart promotion coming to Nintendo eShop for Wii U on 27th March 2014.

Mario Kart fans who have ever unleashed a Spiny Shell item or been on the wrong side of one will know of their capacity to make or break a race, therefore as a memento of times both good and not so good, the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition software bundle will come complete with a Spiny Shell Collector’s Item alongside a physical copy of Mario Kart 8, with the Spiny Shell proudly perched atop a black and transparent frame. Packaged together as a uniquely designed bundle, the Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition launches on 30th May 2014 and is ready for pre-order now from the Nintendo UK Online Store and selected retailers, available while stocks last. Customers in the UK & Ireland who have already pre-ordered the standalone copy of Mario Kart 8 will have the opportunity to upgrade pending availability. One of the most devastating items found in-game, expect to see the Spiny Shell back in its natural environment knocking champion racers off the podium when the item appears in the Mario Kart franchise once more from 30th May 2014.

We’ve seen Mario Kart 8’s North American pack front previously, but Amazon now has a better shot of it available. And yep – looks like the red box really is happening.

On another random note, Amazon has stopped taking pre-orders for Mario Kart 8. No clue why that is, but hopefully they’ll resume again shortly.
