For anyone/everyone counting down until the release of Wii U’s Mario Kart 8 next week, here’s a glimpse of the instruction manual and disc you can expect to receive when you purchase the physical copy of the game.

As expected, the manual is fairly simple, with some nice illustrations to show the controls. The disc looks great though, with Mario glaring over his shoulder – complete with his game-face set – ready to take the gold trophy in his new anti-gravity kart.

Mario Kart 8 is released May 29 in Japan, May 30 in the US and Europe, and May 31 in Australia. If you haven’t already, check out our Mario Kart 8 review.
