We can all relax now, gang. Here I was worried that after Super Smash Bros. Brawl releases in North America next month we'd have a problem finding the next big Nintendo Wii game with which to be enamored. As I'm sure you're aware, we were in danger of experiencing a Wii excitement lull in terms of games for the hardcore fan. Launch title Zelda: Twilight Princess led into Super Paper Mario which held us until Metroid Prime 3: Corruption kept us busy until Super Mario Galaxy which sustains us until the coming of Brawl, but what was to be next? Wii Fit? Yeah, I don't think so. Thankfully Nintendo has taken the wrapper off some new Mario Kart Wii screenshots, and this fresh look at Mario and friends racing through exotic Mushroom Kingdom locales has fueled up my anticipation tank once more. Crisis averted!
But what comes after Mario Kart Wii?
