E3: Wireless Wii Wheel for Mariokart

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano at 9:41 AM

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Reggie Fils-Aime just announced the Wii Wheel, a wireless steering wheel for use with "Mariokart Wii," a forthcoming release of the classic Nintendo franchise for the company's current-generation console.

"Like the Wii Zapper, this custom steering wheel has the potential to level the track for beginners while offering a new feel, even if you first started racing with Mariokart 15 years ago," Fils-Aime said. (Was it really that long? Yikes!)

"Mariokart Wii" will be available during the first quarter of 2008 and will feature real-time online multiplayer races and battle mode. Fils-Aime suggested that the number of players who can participate at once might be higher than in past versions.
