Gameplay

Mario Kart Wii features the same gameplay that has been a staple to the series. Players can choose from multiple racers with a variety of karts available as well. The game is WiFi enabled (like Mario Kart DS), but also allows for Battle Mode to be played online, a first in the series. A Mario Kart Wii Channel has also been opened to record world records.

The dual riders from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! has been abandoned, with the characters now all driving in single karts. The game also introduces motorcycles. 50cc Mode features karts, while 100cc Mode features motorcycles and 150cc Mode features both. Additionally, Miis are playable. The Mission Mode, introduced in Mario Kart DS, is also featured for the first time in a console Mario Kart game.

The game has different methods of play and comes packaged with the official Wii Wheel peripheral, although it can also be played with any of the Wii's other controllers.
