Easily my favourite Wii game, Mario Kart has been announced as a game on the 3DS whilst at E3. However, the game isn’t currently in playable form. We had a demo showing us various angles of just two characters (Mario and Luigi) racing. None the less, the demo was amazing, showing off the incredible 3D capabilities of the 3DS' upper screen and allowing us to drool desperately over Mario and Luigi powersliding their way through Mario Kart courses we'd never seen before.
The graphics are improved with little details like petals falling on to the road in front of the players face (thanks to 3D).
I also noticed that being able to see down into the distance is a fantastic effect on the 3DS, and I'm sure it will help to see how far away you are from other racers.
Here is a screenshot of the upcoming game.
I am not surprised Mario Kart got the call up. On the Wii it was quite simply phenomenal. So good that it’s Wii version sold 22 million copies!!
