Mario Kart Wii

Post by mariofanatic166 on Sun Apr 27, 2008 7:54 pm

Today I just got Mario Kart Wii, and it is awesome! But wow... compared to all of the other Mario Kart games is the series, this one is really challenging! You actually have to unlock your own Mii! XD But it's just better overall. You get 8 karts to select for EACH character, once you unlock the other the other 5. Razz Cause you start out with 3 for each character.

It features 24 (25 counting the Mii) selectable characters, more than any of its predecessors. 12 characters are available from the first time you load the game; the other 12 (and Miis) are unlockable by performing well in the Grand Prix, Time Trial or Multiplayer modes. The cast of characters includes 20 returning characters from Mario Kart and five newcomers. This installment's newcomers are Baby Peach, Funky Kong, Miis (which can also be seen as background elements such as spectators or a sphinx), Rosalina, Dry Bowser, and making her first ever appearance in the Mario series, Baby Daisy. There are eight characters of each weight class; eight for light, eight for middle and eight for heavy. Each kart or bike has unique abilities, making them more suited to certain playing styles, and less suited to others.

Mario Kart Wii has a total of 32 tracks: 16 new, while the other 16 are remakes of tracks from previous Mario Kart games. Eight of the new tracks and eight of the remade tracks, also known as "retro" cups, are available right from the start, and the rest need to be unlocked. The tracks are split into eight different cups, four containing the new tracks and four containing the remakes. In addition, there are also ten battle courses, five new and five remakes of battle courses from previous games. The tracks are generally wider in Mario Kart Wii than other games in the series, as they are designed to have twelve racers on them instead of eight. In the four retro cups there are four tracks from the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo 64, the Nintendo GameCube and two tracks from the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy Advance.

Mario Kart Wii had a very successful launch and sold 300,000 copies on the launch day in Japan alone, compared to Mario Kart DS which sold 160,000 copies on its first day and Mario Kart: Double Dash!! which sold 180,000 on its first day. Only three days later it had sold a total of over half a million copies in Japan. In the UK, Mario Kart Wii was the best-selling video game in the week ending April 12, 2008, having "the eighth biggest opening sales week in UK software history" and becoming the biggest launch of any Nintendo-published game, according to ChartTrack/ELSPA. The game dwarfed all other five Mario Wii games combined (Mario & Sonic at the Olympics, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Mario Party 8, and Mario Strikers Charged) when comparing first week sales.

It's a game... Neutral doesn't that mean it belongs in "Your Gaming Highlights"?
