Mario Kart 7 is burning down
the tracks towards its December 4 release date, and we’ve enjoyed what we've played already, including all the new
racers we've seen. Villains like Lakitu and Shy Guy were added, as was Metal
Mario, all worthy additions, and now our sister publication Nintendo Power newest issue has an
extensive preview for Mario Kart 7 that revealed two more racers: Honey Queen from
Mario Galaxy and classic baddie Wiggler.
Honey Queen looks fine, but she’s such a huge
and stationary being, it seems weird to add her out of all the other possible Galaxy characters.
We do like that it implies at least one new raceway inspired by Mario Galaxy might be added, which
would be amazing. We’re a little more excited for Wiggler as, just like Shy
Guy, he’s been around for decades and deserves his spot. But can this be the end of the new characters or do any other mystery racers remain?
