Awesome. Mario Kart on the SNES is, as far as I am concerned, one of the best games ever made. I still play it regularly even though the computer players cheat flagrantly. Since then it has appeared in various forms, though perhaps none as hotly anticipated as the Wii version. It’s just hitting on the other side of the water (the Japanese side) so we’ll be hearing more about it soon. In the meantime, here’s a taste:
32 courses (16 new, 16 remakes), 12-player online play and 4-player split-screen play, world ranking and downloadable ghosts, Miis as racers (meh, I want Toad), and mid-air tricks that boost you on landing. Sounds pretty righteous, and let’s hope it controls as good as the original.
