Mario Kart Wii to Support Four Control Setups

Nintendo EAD's forthcoming Mario Kart Wii reveals that the racer will support four different control configurations, according to a 1UP hands-on preview.

Similar to the various control schemes available in Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii), Mario Kart Wii will allow gamers to race with the new motion-based Wii Remote controls, but will also support GameCube controllers, Nintendo's classic controller peripheral and the Wii Remote and Nunchuk.

The news will no doubt come as a relief to those looking forward to the latest in Nintendo's long-running kart racer series while dreading the notion of waggling in lieu of traditional controls.

Mario Kart Wii was recently revealed to support Mii functionality, 12-player online multiplayer and will include 32 courses. The racer is currently slated for a worldwide spring release.
