Nintendo has told Eurogamer the latest rumours to emerge about Mario Kart Wii are nothing more than speculation.

As reported by Aussie-Nintendo, Nmag Gamepro magazine claims the game will feature 32 courses - half of which will be brand new, half old favourites.

The mag also claims Baby Peach and Boo will appear as drivers, snaking will make a comeback, Battle mode will be playable online and the controls will be similar to those in Excite Truck.

Or not. According to a spokesperson, "Nintendo has not announced any further information on Mario Kart. We've spoken to the magazine and it's just pure rumour and speculation on their part."

So what do we know about MK Wii? It'll work with the new Wii steering wheel, and up to 12 players will be able to race online. Plus it's got motorbikes. For more info, visit the gamepage. Mario Kart Wii is due out in the first half of this year.

Well. Is this good or bad because it doesnt really make much of a difference with these rumors does it?

Its good to me because nothing has been confirmed, allows for more surprises for me when I get the game. Although I am sure it will be spoiled some other time down the road :lol:

Online battle mode is probably the only reason I'd get the game.

I'm actually not going to believe this statement. I think the info Nmag released was legit. They probably just weren't supposed to release it quite yet. I'll wait for different confirmation but that's my stance as of right now.

why would u be in denial when the company that made the game is saying that they are only rumours?

Because they've done this before. I mean, it's not like it was ground breaking info anyway.. I'm just saying.. let's wait.

No snaking confirmed, thank goodness. I just hope it stays that way. Too bad they added motorbikes...I'm not excited about that.
