Nintendo Everything: Wii U
CyberGadget will be releasing a “Handle Stand” for the Wii U GamePad in Japan next month. Essentially, it turns the controller into a wheel which can then be used for racing games. The package also comes with a more traditional wheel that has a slot for a Wii Remote.
The Cyber Handle Stand will be out sometime next month. Pricing is set at 4,298 yen.
Mario Kart 8 may offer 30 playable characters, based on the photo above. It seems to be the game’s character select screen.
Now… is that screen final? Could there be even more unlockable characters aside from the ones hidden by question marks?
A few months ago, Nintendo released special Mario and Luigi Wii Remote Plus controllers. Peach is now joining in on the fun as well.
Starting in late April, consumers can purchase a special pink controller featuring a crown design over the speaker, blue buttons that echo Peach’s royal jewelry, and a golden-yellow plus pad that evokes her regal crown. Pricing is set at $39.99.
