Nintendo want to take on you in a race of Mario Kart 7, you up for it?

Nintendo Australia are extending an offer today to join their brand new Australian and New Zealand community for Mario Kart 7 fans, it’s smartly named the Nintendo AUS/NZ Community. Nintendo has seen us racing and wants to bring us all under their wing to lull us into a false sense of security before they challenge us to a few races.

That’s right they want to take you on!

Challenge Accepted!
