It's no secret that Mario Kart 7
is due out in December, but
it now appears that a certain 3DS-compatible steering wheel from Hori
will be too. (Stoked?) According to Andriasang
, Amazon's Japanese site listed the peripheral sans photos, pricing it at a cool ¥1,280 (about $17). Not long after that the blog snagged a few press shots of said unit, which looks like a odd blend of the iPhone-oriented Helix
grip and Nintendo's own Wii Wheel
. The attachment is said to feature tweaked shoulder triggers and Nintendo's Official Seal of Approval, but won't score you extra SlidePad
functionality. You'll find a shot of the back past the break and more details at the links below.
