Mario Kart Wii uses GCN, Classic controllers, too

Mario Kart WiiFor those of you who have been worrying that the tilt controls of the upcoming Mario Kart Wii (a la ExciteTruck) might not be your cup of tea, fear not! According to a 1UP preview, the game will feature three other control schemes for the fundamentalist in you.

Besides the Wii wheel players can choose to use a Wiimote/Nunchuk combo, the Wii classic controller, or a Gamecube controller. Just as with Super Smash Bros Brawl, Nintendo hasn’t forgotten their hardcore fanbase – those grown accustomed to the controls of past games and would rather not make the switch.

There were some prior clues that this was going to happen, but now the proof is in the pudding. I’m pleased to read this, because I simply don’t know which control setup I would like the most. It’s always nice to have options. Do any of you guys already have a good idea of what your preference might be?
