Mario Kart Wii To Hit Europe On April 25th?

Posted by Damien McFerran

Online store seems to think so

Online retailer Play.com has sparked a shockwave of excited fanboy chatter by listing Mario Kart Wii’s European release date as April 25th.

Nintendo’s previous date for the game was the somewhat vague “Q2 2008”, and a spokesperson for the company has insisted that Play.com is merely guessing at a possible launch date. However, we’re not totally convinced that the online retailer simply stuck a pin into their calendar and decided that the date would be the 25th…they clearly know something we don’t.

Mario Kart Wii is shaping up to be one of the most eagerly awaited titles of 2008, with motion sensitive controls, online play and (hopefully) enough killer gameplay to make fans forget the unfortunate stumble that was Mario Kart: Double Dash.

I don't get why people weren't that impressed with DD. It wasn't the best Mario Kart of the series but it handled well and was pretty good fun?

Incidentally the DS version is my favourite. I still play that.
