Mario Kart 7 3DS steering wheel confirmed for UK

Licensed accessory out next month.

An officially licensed Mario Kart 7 steering wheel spotted last month for release in Japan will be available to buy in the UK next month, Nintendo has confirmed.

Created by peripherals manufacturer Hori, the wheel has Nintendo's official stamp of approval.

There's no word on how much it will cost here, although in Japan it was priced at 1280 yen (about £10.50).

The wheel attachment fits snugly around the 3DS, allowing players extra grip for the game's tilt-sensing gyroscopic controls.

Mario Kart 7's arm-swerving control method is optional and sees gameplay transferred into first-person view. It's a control pad-free alternative similar to the Wii Wheel add-on for Mario Kart Wii.

Simon Parkin rated the game 8/10 in Eurogamer's Mario Kart 7 review.
