Nintendo announced Mario Kart for the Nintendo Wii last year in July. Now the release of this highly anticipated racing game draws nearer. Nintendo announced today that the game will be released on April 27th.

Mario Kart for the Wii comes with the Wii Wheel, which makes it easy for novices to compete against veterans, so no one is left in the dust.
And with a broadband hookup to Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, you can compete with up to 11 other drivers from around the world for racing dominance.

Mario Kart Wii will include 16 new courses and 16 classic courses from previous Mario Kart games. For the first time ever, players have the option of racing with either karts or motorbikes. Players can also hit the road as their personalized Mii caricatures in addition to the handful of classic Nintendo characters found in the game.
True to the series, the game features tons of racing, plenty of power-ups and oodles of objects for players to use to slow down other drivers. And 10 battle arenas will keep players busy between trips around the circuit.

The easy-to-use Wii Wheel will also be sold as a separate accessory.
Mario Kart Wii supports four different control options: Wii Remote with or without the Wii Wheel, Wii Remote and Nunchuk controller combo, Classic Controller and even the Nintendo GameCube controller.

Mario Kart Wii launches with a new channel added to the Wii Menu to enhance game play: The Mario Kart Wii Channel. This new channel builds on the huge online community of Wii owners and lets players compete in tournaments, check worldwide rankings, see when their friends are playing and download ghost data.

Mario Kart with wheel is listed on and available for pre-order on Gamestop for $49.99.
