Mario Kart Wii Announced For 2008

And they are still at it! Yes, Nintendo has confirmed recent rumors and announced Mario Kart. Along with the announcement of the game the company revealed that Mario Kart Wii will also go online and allow players to have real-time battles and races with others. Although the game will be graphically similar to Double Dash it will apparently drop the two-player-on-a-cart thing.

The game will apparently have many different control choices which should keep those that like old-school controls happy. If you are new-school though the game will be offered with a custom Wii wheel, which you can strap the Wiimote to the back of to play. Unfortunately, the late 2007 rumored released date did not come to fruition and the game is currently set for an unspecified 2008 date.
