There is evidence everywhere.

Nintendo appears to be planning to release Mario Kart 8 in a special red case in North America.

While nothing official has been stated, the game appears to have a red case on Nintendo of America's website, and also has been shown while a Mario Kart 8 trailer played on an official Wii U demo station at Best Buy.

Mario Kart 8 is scheduled to be released on May 30 for the Wii U.

You would have thought the world's supply of red DVD cases was used up in the Great NSMB Wii release of '09.

Red is arguably more attractive than blue... XDD

This has been seen for over a month. It's just now being posted?

Why are they doing this? I love the blue cases Wii U games come in, they look so good

The red case is to commemorate Nintendo's financials for this fiscal year.

The different colored cartridges for N64 back in the day were actually kinda cool.  But specially colored cases or discs now just don't seem that interesting, at least in my opinion.

It could be interesting if they would change the coverart to go with the red case.  I think it looks bad to have the standard all blue coverart with the red case.  It reminds me very much of PS3 greatest hit cases and I didn't like those either.

I think it would look better if the background for the Wii U logo were also red, like how the green case for New Super Luigi U gave it a green background also.
