Nintendo UK has confirmed that the Mario Kart 8 Premium Pack - Special Edition Wii U bundle will be arriving in European shops for £249.99 / €299.99, on May 30, the same day Mario Kart 8 launches. This bundle was leaked recently, but now more details have been announced with an official confirmation. The bundle includes anything a regular black Premium Pack would have, but this time the included game is a copy of Mario Kart 8. 

The upcoming Wii U bundle is currently available for pre-order on the Nintendo UK Online Store. The store is also offering exclusive Team Mario and Team Luigi bundles which include this Premium Pack, plus a bunch of nifty Mario- or Luigi-themed accessories and a guide for the game. 

Also launching alongside the Princess Peach Wii Remote Plus, is a Yoshi Wii Remote Plus. Both can also be pre-ordered from the Nintendo UK Online Store, for £39.99. A release in other regions has not been confirmed but it's expected, as the Mario and Luigi Wii Remotes launched worldwide. Yoshi fans will definitely want this controller to play as the cute green dino when Mario Kart 8 releases on May 30.
