Score ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ for 20 percent off the retail price now

Mario Kart 8 is out Friday, which reminds us of the series’ primary purpose: to ruin perfectly good friendships.

Want to get a copy, but don’t wanna spend $60? By joining Amazon Prime you get the game for 20 percent off the retail price AND it’ll be delivered on release day. So instead of $59.99, you pay $47.99. Shipping is free as a part of Prime, of course.

If you have never played a Mario Kart game and were raised in a small cave by wild bears, Mario Kart 8 is a great one to start with. The crispest-looking entry in the series by far, you play with all the beloved Nintendo characters plus some new additions (Hi Inklings!). The game offers 48 tracks, some brand new while others from past games appear better than before. Overall it’s going to be a blast, and we can’t wait to play.
