    ye i enjoyed the one on the gamecube on 4 player aggainst my cousins and i was just wondering if there was some sort of mario cart game coming to wii?

    it could be played on the wiimote by flipping it sideways and using it like a steering wheel ( eg excite truck/nfs )

    you could fire weapons by pressing A

    you could accelerate by holding down 1 or 2 and brake by pressing 1 or 2

    cycling through your inventory for weapons you be by pressing up and down on the D pad ( which would actually be left and right, when the contoller is on its side )

    and you could power lide by holing down 1 and 2 whilst tilting the contoller in the direction you want to turn !

    so these are just my views !

    what do you think.................TALK! ;)

    Mario Kart will be on the Wii in time. Hopefully Nintendo will announce it after Corruption, Brawl, and Galaxy are released.
    I can't say anything about your control ideas.

    I mean... I don't know what to say. The only racing game I've played with Wii controls was Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam (mediocre), and I shouldn't base Wii racing controls on that experience. I am, however, planning on picking up Excite Truck soon.

    I've played excite truck, the controls are actually pretty good. And i'm sure they'll come out with Mario Kart. There's just no release date just yet. But im thinking maybe late this year, just keep your fingers crossed and pray. (Yeah Tony Hawk was horrible....)

    Yes, there is a Mario Kart Wii game coming. It is still a..."concept" so don't expect it anytime soon.

    I say forget this whole sideways Wiimote crap. I want to use the Nunchuk to steer and the Remote to use items, to do the little skips that we had in Mario Kart 64 and other things as well. Imagine being able to make your cart jump by moving the Wiimote up using the motion detection part of it? That would be awesome in my opinion. I like the premise of Excite Truck's controls but MK is a true racer game to me and I want it to handle like one.

    I like Call of Duty style where you hold them like a they are your hands on a steering wheel plus it let's you use all the buttons but they sideways is used because it's easy to hold and you don't get tired

    I want a MK named Mario Kart Niitrox, of course exclusively for the Wii.

    There is of course an arcade version of mariokart, where i'm sure you can take photo's of yourself and scan it onto your drivers face. You have a point card to stick into the machine too. Anyone know the one i'm talking about? (btw I live in japan, maybe only here? but i doubt it)

    Ninty could always just do a port of that game, though it looks rather good, maybe too good for a Wii to handle.

    No it's not?
    Years to come... By then Nintendo will be making all it's online-type games online.

    Some interesting ideas here. The Mario Kart series is easily my favorite set of games. They have great replay value in both single and multi-player modes, and the best part is no two circuits are ever the same.

    Hopefully they do include online gameplay...from Super Mario Kart all the way to Double Dash, I've only lost 2 circuits total to another player, so I look forward to being able to play against people from around the world.

    As for the controls...I wouldn't want them to go through with the "holding the wiimote sideways" bit. I'd prefer to drive/direct and accelerate with the nunchuk...while cycling through inventory/using weapons with the wiimote. I have a feeling that if they go with this concept, you will be able to aim your green shells or overhead banana throws.

    That would be great just so everyone is happy but I really think it would work best with a the Nunchuk like sentbytelevision has laid out. That would work really well I think.

    yeah I dissagree with you. I like the sideways controller way better.

    Mario Kart Wii has to, and inevitably will, happen. It is too popular a franchise not to make one for the immensely-successful Wii.

    I think the controller-sideways configuration is the way to go. Steer by tilting the remote, accelerate with 2, brake with 1, fire weapons by pushing any direction on the D-pad and drift with A. Simple.
