Mario Kart Racing Wheel for Switch announced
Update: Pre-orders are now open on Play-Asia here.
Original: HORI has announced a new Mario Kart Racing Wheel accessory for Switch. It will come in two versions: a standard release and a more expensive DX version.
This new accessory works with both the Switch and PC. Functions from the Switch controller have been migrated over to the new device, and even comes with a foot pedal. While it only works in docked mode, it’s compatible with other modes and the Switch Lite through an extra USB accessory.
With the hold button, you can have an item held behind you. Players can choose to assign the different buttons as they please as well. There’s also “deadzone adjustment” and “reality adjustment” with seven different levels for adjusting turning radius so you can set it to your liking. The DX edition throws in suction cups and clamps.
Below are a few photos:
The standard Mario Kart Racing Wheel will go for 6,980 yen while the DX edition is priced at 13,980 yen. A release is planned for this November in Japan.
