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.

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.
