Oh Waluigi, you weird, wonderful, whacky piece of art. 

The Waluigi love has been particularly strong recently, with that wonderful floppy hair of his taking centre stage in Mario Tennis Aces, and countless fan-made boxart covers appearing online, all fantasising about potential games starring the man himself. It perhaps comes at no surprise, then, that someone out there has made a mod for Mario Kart 7 to add him into the game.

Replacing poor Honey Queen in the roster, Waluigi comes with full models, voices, and animations, allowing players to dash around each track to a soundtrack of "wah", "weeeee", and "wah" once again. You can check it all out in the video below, which shows him being selected from the character roster menu before taking on a few races.

Considering the fact that Waluigi appeared in Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii, it seems strange that he never made it to the 3DS' outing. At least Nintendo saw sense in the end, though, bringing him back for the latest racing wonders in Mario Kart 8.

Would you like to see Waluigi turn up in more games? Would you like a Waluigi-centric adventure to be the next big hit on Switch? As ever, let us know down below.
