Mario Kart 7 Makes Way For Nintendo 3DS Racing Wheel From Hori

Here's one that you probably didn't see coming. Nintendo will be releasing Mario Kart 7, the latest portable entry in its long-running kart-racing franchise, for the 3DS handheld on December 4 in North America. Hori, maker of awesome coin-op-style fighting game joysticks, took notice of this fact and got to work on a mount for your device that essentially turns the whole thing into a big steering wheel.

The wheel of course takes advantage of the built-in accelerometer that the 3DS is equipped with. That means its meant for a motion-based control scheme, which in turn means that you probably won't be using 3D for the game if you plan to use the wheel. It does offer larger L and R buttons as well though, which the giant meathook-wielding people of the world will probably appreciate.
