It was the game we were all waiting for and since its UK release last Friday, Mario Kart Wii has become the the most successful first party Nintendo game ever. The game has also been crowned the eighth biggest launch ever in the UK, selling more than the other five Mario Wii games combined, knocking Gran Turismo 5: Prologue down the sales charts. Wow!
Mario Kart Wii sees the likes of long-time Nintendo staples such as Italian plumber Mario, his brother Luigi, Toad and Wario race one another in places such as volcanoes and like past versions, also includes a battle option where players combat one another. The game, which has been a firm favourite with fans of racing games for years, even harks back to its cherished past with races from former formats included in this latest incarnation.
