Mario Kart coming to the 3DS this holiday

Nintendo has just announced a 3DS version of Mario's racing series, this time just called Mario Kart. All of the familiar characters are apparently on board, and the game will apparently feature customizable cars (with different types of wheels and other parts), as well as underwater driving sections and even hang gliding attachments on certain parts of the tracks.

Mario Kart is set for a release sometime this holiday season. Stay tuned -- Nintendo says the game will be playable on the E3 show floor this week.%Gallery-125669%
