Yes dear reader that is the sound of me scraping the bottom of the barrel of news and finding the exciting announcement that UK television channel E4 will be showing highlights of races from Nintendo’s Mario Kart TV service.
If you upload a clip of your race between May 30th and June 2nd you may win the chance to have your highlights reel broadcast at around 8:10pm on E4. You will also win a real Mario Kart cup.
“It’s great to re-watch in detail those key moments in the race, whether it’s getting blue-shelled, exploring the new anti-gravity mode or reliving your victory as you cross the finish line,” said Nintendo UK’s Mario brand manager Roger Langford. “E4 is a perfect vehicle for highlighting this feature to a young and engaged audience and we’re looking forward to seeing the entries.”
Channel 4 and E4 have often been associated with gaming promotions, most recently Marvels Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. was sponsored by PlayStation Vita.
