We suspect, based on our community game nights and events — they will return! — that Mario Kart 7 is pretty high on a number of favourite game lists. The franchise is also the classic multiplayer experience on Nintendo systems, successfully bringing out the most competitive instincts in players.
Naturally, if you play with friends you may want to up the ante, so the new Mario Kart trophies available on Club Nintendo Europe may be worth a look. They cost a fair amount at 5000 stars each, so you'd better start filling out surveys now.
Will you be blowing your collected stars on these, or are they out of your budget? We'll keep an eye out for their appearance in North America, too.
