My personal favorite game ever, is Mario Kart– and we are now hearing rumors of a Japan release date for the Wii Version!!
If the rumors are true, it will launch April 10th and will be bundled with Wii Wheel! It will include 32 courses, a remake of classics and some newbies. You can also play as your Mii, if Mario or Luigi is not up your alley.
Previously confirmed, Mario Kart Wii boasts a 12 player online multiplayer so you can compete with players anywhere!
Nintendo had announced a Spring release date for the game, so hopefully no delays will occur.
