Drivers, start your engines!
Nintendo is bringing Mario and his friends with their finely tuned racing machines back and this time to the Nintendo Wii. With 3 different control styles and a Wii Wheel included in the box, Mario Kart Wii is bound to be the best in the series. The worldwide race is on with a whole new set of tricks, tracks, and ways to play! Place first in Grand Prix circuits or clear skill-based missions. Mario Kart Wii draws on courses and battle arenas from every game in the series - not to mention tons of new ones - the true king of the Mushroom Kingdom racing circuits will finally be crowned.
- The Wii Wheel transforms the Wii Remoteâ¢ controller into a steering wheel that feels natural in anyone's hands, while the Wii Remote and Nunchukâ¢ controller offer a classic control style for the Mario Kart veteran. In either configuration, players can perform speed-boosting tricks with a shake of the Wii Remote.
- Players can race as their favorite Nintendo character, or even as themselves! Mario Kart Wii lets players race with their personalized Miiâ¢ characters. And racers will see other Mii characters they have created cheering from the sidelines on some race courses.
- Players can compete with up to three friends in their living room. Or challenge up to 11 opponents via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in the biggest Mario Kart race yet. All tracks and modes of play are available via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and players can visit the Mario Kart Channel to compete in tournaments, check rankings, see when their friends are playing and download ghost data.
- Cruise new tracks and arenas or tour classic courses from Super Mario Kartâ¢, Mario KartÂ® 64, Mario KartÂ®: Super Circuitâ¢, Mario KartÂ®: Double Dash!!â¢ and Mario KartÂ® DS. Tired of riding on four wheels? Bust out one of the new motorbikes for special tricks and techniques.
Nintendo favorites Marioâ¢, Luigiâ¢, Peachâ¢, YoshiÂ®, Donkey KongÂ®, Warioâ¢, Bowserâ¢ and Toadâ¢, plus a host of new faces-including your own! Get into the game and put your Miiâ¢ character behind the wheel.
Whether racing around an obstacle-filled track or battling in an arena, drifting and tossing items are the keys to Mario Kart success. Players can shake the Wii Remote while launching off a ramp to pull off a trick that will temporarily boost their speed. When riding a bike, players can gain additional speed by flicking the Wii Remote up and popping a wheelie

Customer Review: Mario kart Wii
Bought this for my son's 10th birthday and now the only game he has played on Wii for the last month. Good idea to order with a second wheel (which he is getting for Christmas) so they can race with a friend.
Customer Review: Way better than Mario Kart 64
I had a nintendo 64 years ago and loved this game and now that they have it for wii I had to buy it. The game has come a long way since nintendo 64. Really fun to play and with the wii wheel its even better.
