    The amazingly successful Mario Kart series, which involves driving your favorite Mario World characters around in silly go-karts, is about to get another sequel. Mario Kart Wii will, as the name suggests, arrive on the Wii. Here's a list of all the fun stuff Mario Kart Wii has to offer.
    • The game will include a fancy wheel controller.
    • Gamers have the option to race either classic karts or bikes. Bikes are faster and can perform wheelies, but are harder to control. Tricks performed in mid-air will give the gamer a speed boost upon landing.
    • There will be 32 tracks. 16 are brand new, and the other 16 are remakes of previous favorite courses.
    • Gamers can play against up to 4 people on the same Wii, and up to 16 over the internet.
    Mario Kart Wii will find itself on Japanese shelves on April 10th, and a North American/European release should follow shortly.

    I'm looking forward to this if it lives up to its predecessors :)

    Nintendo needs to rework the online system. The friend code is dumb, and it seems to be no such thing as public servers. Multiplayer games are done by requests.
