Set to launch on the 24th of April, Mario Kart Wii will feature new characters, race tracks, vehicles, comes with a new Wii Wheel accessory, and will support online gameplay.

Nintendo claims that the new Wii Wheel will make it simple for everyone to pick up and play Mario Kart Wii. It will also support four additional control options (Wii Remote turned sideways, Wii Remote and Nunchuk combination, Classic Controller, and the Nintendo GameCube Controller), allowing players to use their preferred control method.
In addition to new maps and characters, players now have the option of racing with karts or motor bikes. Racing with a motor bike will offer different game play possibilities and manoeuvres such as ‘wheelies’, which can be crucial in making it first over the finish line, Nintendo says.

Mario Kart Wii will also offer online multiplayer gaming via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service. Up to 12 players worldwide can race simultaneously, with users being able to create a room, join a race, and send online contacts messages. The upcoming Mario Kart Channel will also keep track of your rankings against other Mario Kart Wii players worldwide and come with a ‘host of special features.’
