Nintendo’s “Mario Kart 8 Test Drive Days” promotion just got real with the announcement that a playable demo of the game will be available at GameStop this upcoming weekend. The Mario Kart 8 demo will be at 2,700 GameStop locations throughout the U.S. from May 17th to the 18th, and it will feature what Nintendo is touting as an “action-packed” experience.

Players interested in getting their hands on Mario Kart 8 early should plan on stopping by their local GameStop between 12 pm – 4 pm local time. To find out if a GameStop near you will be offering the Mario Kart 8 demo you can check the retailer’s official website. Best of all, if you have already pre-ordered the game, or do so this weekend while playing the demo, you will receive an exclusive double-sided Mario Kart 8 poster.

Mario Kart 8 is a Wii U exclusive that is set to hit retail on May 30, 2014.
