    Mario Kart may Feature some kind of chat!

    Text, voice…something is in there. My guess is text. This blurb comes from the official Euro press release.

    “In addition to all this a new Wii Channel, the Mario Kart Channel, will also be launched with Mario Kart Wii. Players will be able to monitor their ranking against others with data compiled from races completed online as well as also access and share Ghost Data to download. Why not see if your friends are playing by checking their status or even better still set up a room in which you can chat to them before a race starts? Players even have the possibility to join in on their friends races in progress as a spectator and jump into the race when the next course launches. Through this channel, users will be exposed to a host of new online features allowing them to join a community of racing fans from all over the world as well as participate in special worldwide events organised by Nintendo.”

    Thanks to everyone that sent this in.

    Hopefully it will be voice chat.

    What do you people think it will be?

    The quoted text clearly says chat before the race starts. Which is a step in the right direction but still not useful for gameplay. I still doubt it will be voice chat.

    text chat would be a wasted effort. typing on the wii is aggravating as hell.

    I'd die to see a proper online multiplayer game that supports voice chat on wii! It would be the gift of life.

    Well since it'll probably be text, see this topic:

    http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-...d-roundup.html

    This is your best bet for happiness because selecting each letter separately will be difficult. Also, while the typing screen is up I don't think you can view what the others are saying so it'll be good to be able to type faster. I mean I own a Sidekick so typing on this would be a breeze.

    Mhm. I always imagined a portable one that could snap into the wiimote like the nunchuk does. That doesn't seem like it'll become a reality however.

    Edit: I didn't mean a wire. I meant the keyboard just snaps directly into the slot. So if you held the wiimote backwards it'd resemble a spatula.

    Either way, it probably won't happen :-P
