Mario Kart 8 Rumour Bomb

Well we're a little more than a month away from Mario Kart 8's release and rumours and "details"  are starting to swirl about the title.

Wii U Bundle

A French gaming blog has "outed" a Mario Kart 8 bundle. The fairly standard looking bundle is "confirmed" for Europe and comes with a black 32GB Wii U, a copy of MK8 and a trial of Wii Karaoke U. This is where the rumour stumbles a little. Karaoke isn't that big in the west and whilst it dose come with Japanese bundles Europe's bundles usually come with Wii Sports Club and/or Wii U Fitness trials. Whilst I am sure there will be a Wii U Mario Kart bundle I doubt this is it.

Mario Kart 8 has 30 characters

This one seems likley and has a convincing photo to go along with it. 
Considering the game features light varients of existing characters (Babies, Bowser Jr, Diddy kong) and the Kooper Kids it's not hard to imagine that MK8 has thrity characters.

Gamepad Racing wheel stand coming westward

The above image is of a real Japanese add on that "lets players use the Wii U gamepad as a real steering wheel". Which seems to add as much function as the Wiimote steering wheel attachments.
the rumour here is that it's coming to the west, which seems unlikely as the Wii add on market was built around tricking mums. I do however think this could be handy for racing games
