Sources claim we’ll see the game in ’07 in the U.K., ’08 in the U.S.
While rumors during E3 are about as common as ants at a picnic, U.K. gaming site N-Europe claims that a reliable source has told them to expect a Wii version of Mario Kart to make an appearance at the gaming expo this week. Also, apparently confirming statements made in June by Patrick Nagel, Deputy Marketing Manager for Nintendo of Germany, Europeans can even expect to see the game released this year...
If the site is to be trusted, U.S. Wii owners will get Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Super Smash Bros. Brawl this year, while our friends across the pond will get Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Mario Kart for the Wii; in 2008, both countries will supposedly get the game they missed (that is to say, Mario Kart in America and Brawl in Europe). As you may remember, Super Smash Bros. Brawl will not be playable at E3, as Nintendo wants to make time for some of their previously unannounced Wii titles, which may in fact include the long-rumored Mario Kart game.
Unfortunately, as much as we’d like to believe this story, at this time we can claim it as nothing more than a rumor, though Mario Kart is bound to make it to the Nintendo Wii at some point during the system’s lifecycle. Of course, with Nintendo’s press conference just days away, we’ll be sure to keep any eye on this story. And, if we learn anything more, you’ll see it right here, so be sure to check back at VGGEN often!
