Mario Kart Pre-Order Bonus
September 10, 2003
Just like with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Nintendo
has decided to throw in another bonus disk with a new game.
Nintendo has confirmed that Mario Kart: Double Dash!! will
come with a pre-order bonus. However, contrary to speculation, the
free disk does not appear to be a copy of
Mario Kart 64 for the GameCube. A Nintendo representative
at a press release stated,
"The offer gives customers who reserve an advanced copy of Mario
Kart: Double Dash!! for Nintendo GameCube a chance to test-drive a bonus
preview disc loaded with movies and demos of upcoming Nintendo GameCube
titles. The special offer is effective immediately at select retailers."
No information was given on the exact
contents of the disk, but we can assume that it will be promising. More
information will probably arrive as the game’s release date comes
Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
is scheduled to ship on November 17. The game was first revealed at E3
2003 in May. Along with other twists, this newest installment of the
Mario Kart series contains go-karts that hold two riders. It will also
support multiplayer over a broadband connection.
