The release of Mario Kart 8 has already served up some promising pre-order choices in Europe and — to a lesser extent — in Japan. Now Hori is stepping in with some accessories in Nintendo's homeland, and we want them all.

As you can see in the images below, Mario and Luigi are both honoured with attractive GamePad skins and themed Wii Wheels. The former look like a great way to add some character to the sizeable Wii U controller, while we want the wheels just because they look good; analogue controls are number one, after all.

Check them out and express your hopes and dreams for equivalents in the West in the comments.
