Different ways to play Mario Kart

Different ways to play Mario Kart

Published On April 2, 2008 | By Jeremy White | News

People who are a little skeptical about how the Wii-mote will work in Mario Kart do not worry there are plenty of ways to play the game. Some ways are more familiar, while others may be less familiar but offer a different experience.

Mario Kart can have four different control schemes. They are as follows:

  • Wii Remote Controller (with or without Wii Wheel): Steer by tilting the Wii Remote left and right. Or snap the Wii Remote into the Wii Wheel to transform it into a steering wheel for an intuitive, motion-based control scheme.
  • Nunchuk Controller: Steer with the Control Stick on the Nunchuk and use the Wii Remote to accelerate, perform tricks and drift.
  • Classic Controller: Mario Kart veterans can let their thumbs do the driving with the Classic Controller. However, players cannot perform certain moves with this control scheme.
  • Nintendo GameCube[TM] Controller: Experienced Mario Kart fans may also enjoy this familiar scheme, although some maneuvers cannot be performed.

So what do you all think? Do you think it’s ok that the classic and GameCube can’t perform certain moves, or is it not a big deal? I guess we’ll all know more about what to think when the game launches in the near future.
