Mario Kart 7 3DS Steering Wheel
3DS Steering wheel for Mario Kart 7
This 3DS Steering wheel is special for Mario Kart 7. It's no secret that Mario Kart 7 is due out in December, but it now appears that a certain 3DS-compatible steering wheel from Hori will be too. (Stoked?) . Not long after that the blog snagged a few press shots of said unit, which looks like a odd blend of the iPhone-oriented Helix grip and Nintendo's own Wii Wheel. The attachment is said to feature tweaked shoulder triggers and Nintendo's Official Seal of Approval, but won't score you extra SlidePad functionality. You'll find a shot of the back past the break and more details at the links below.
Mario Kart 7 players can purchase an official Mario Kart 7 Wheel accessory for use on their Nintendo 3DS system. The wheel attachment fits snugly around the 3DS, allowing players extra grip for the game's tilt-sensing gyroscopic controls. Mario Kart 7's armswerving control method is optional and sees gameplay transferred into first- person view.
