Nintendo has finally made the fact sheet for the upcoming Mario Kart Wii available to the press, and mixed in with talk of the new Wii Wheel peripheral and other such things is our first look at the game's thrilling narrative. Yes, it's time to gear up for another engrossing installment of the Mario Kart saga.
Game storyline: Drawing on courses and battle arenas from every game in the series – not to mention tons of new ones – the true king of the Mushroom Kingdom racing circuits will finally be crowned.
Did you catch that? The true king of the Mushroom Kingdom racing circuits will finally be crowned. Since we're crowning a true king this time, I think we can infer three facts from this little peek into the deep plot: a) the term "true king" is quite a final term that implies that this will be the last Mario Kart game, b) the Mushroom Kingdom ladies can not win the tournament (otherwise we'd crown a "true king or queen"), and c) this is April Fool's Day and there isn't much in the way of legitimate true news I can discuss today, so I'm reaching for whatever I can and reading way too much into game fact sheets.
