Hori Announces Steering Wheel Peripheral For Mario Kart On 3DS

There is a very special peripheral for future owners of Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS coming soon, but it’s not made by Nintendo itself: video game accessory maker Hori announced a steering wheel that’s specifically designed for the game and that’s officially licensed by big N.

The device will feature large L and R buttons for better control:

Hori says the steering wheel, which is Japan-only at this point, will be released when Mario Kart goes on sale (on December 1). It will be priced at US$17 and doesn’t have a release date outside Japan yet (so you might want to contact your import shop as fast as possible).
