2,700 GameStop stores across the US will play host to a playable demo of Mario Kart 8, Nintendo has announced.

The struggling console giant announced the news today as part of its “Mario Kart 8 Test Drive Days” marketing promotion, and added that the available demo will be “action-packed.”

All future and existing pre-orders will receive an exclusive double-sided Mario Kart 8 poster.

The racer will be playable May 17-18, from 12 to 4pm local time. You can head over to the link for a list of the participating stores.

Mario Kart 8 comes out May 30 on Wii U.
