In an article over at Business Week.com, Pandemic's CEO, Andrew Goldman, reveals the company is developing a title for the Nintendo Wii. Kid-friendly, of course.

Pandemic Studios, which plans to release a war game called Mercenaries 2: World in Flames for the PS3 and 360 in August, is quietly developing a concept title for the Wii that could attract younger players, says Chief Executive Andrew Goldman. "The problem with the game business a couple of years ago is it had just gotten stale. We'd lost ground to MySpace.com and other places where there were innovative experiences being developed," he says. "The Wii does something new, and draws people back in.

Although their recent work has leaned towards teens and adults (Destroy All Humans, Mercenaries), Pandemic has dabbled a bit in the arena to attract younger gamers. Anyone remember Army Men RTS? Yeah, I'm trying to forget, too.

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts

To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-road use. Most important of all, this thing plays sounds from Mario Kart. Hot damn! I want to see videos of some kids' years being made. [Via Tiny Cartridge]more
