Now I have a second reason to get a Wii. Mario Kart Wii has been slated for an April 27th launch date for the US and it comes with the Wii Wheel. There is a 12-player race mode via Nintendo Wi-Fi and includes 16 new courses as well as 16 previous courses. You can even pick whether you want a kart of motorbike. It’s going to be righteous.
