Kart Racers, Start Your Engines: Worldwide Mario Kart Wii Tournaments Begin Today

MarioKartWiiTournaments.jpg Starting today, Mario Kart fans across the globe can test their skills against others online in the opening event in Nintendo’s Mario Kart Wii tournament series. From here on out, Nintendo has announced that it’ll hold regular tournaments through Mario Kart Channel, and by regular we’re talking a new tourney “every few weeks,” according to Nintendo. Today’s first challenge is pretty straightforward, tasking players to compete to achieve the fastest time on the Mario Circuit, but other upcoming tournament possibilities include having players “race a certain course as fast as they can with specific characters, or to collect a number of coins on a course using the Wii Wheel accessory or another control setup.” These tournaments may also contain different rules and obstacles than usual, so keep an eye out for some surprises.
