Nintendo dismisses Mario Kart rumors

Mario Kart WiiNintendo Wii fans are in need of a good Mario Kart game for their beloved system, but unfortunately they’ll have to wait until Q2 2008 rolls along. An Australian based Nintendo Wii website recently released new information on the game, which Nintendo was quick to debunk.

NMag, an Aussie-Nintendo Gamepro magazine claimed that Mario Kart Wii would feature 32 courses – half of which will be brand new, half old favorites. 

The magazine also believes that both Baby Peach and Boo will appear as drivers, the ability to "snake" will make a comeback, an online Battle Mode feature and controls similar to those in Excite Truck. According to a Nintendo spokesman, "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."

What we do know about the game is that it will work with the Wii Steering Wheel and up to 12 racers will be able to race against each other online. Did I mention motorbikes?
