Target is teaming up with Nintendo for extensive Mario Kart 8 Deluxe advertising. In over 650 stores in the United States, various decorations are in place to promote the Nintendo Switch game.
It will be easy to see if a local Target is participating. The red bollards outside the stores’ front doors will have Mario and Luigi’s faces on them. Lakitu will be welcoming people in on the front doors, and there will be a checkered starting stripe across the bottom of the door. When the doors open, lights will flash and you’ll hear the sounds Mario Kart 8 Deluxe makes when a race is about to begin. Finally, you might be able to get a “Super Target Kart” to use as you shop. It will have decorations on the front and sides that are inspired by Mario, Luigi, and Peach’s standard Mario Kart 8 Deluxe karts.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will come to the Nintendo Switch on April 28, 2017.
