Hori releasing Mario Kart-themed Switch steering wheels in Japan


Lakitu not included

Controller kings Hori has released images of a pair of steering wheels in development for Switch. Officially licensed by Nintendo, the wheel features branding of the developer's most popular racing franchise, Mario Kart.

The wheel and dual-pedal set feature USB connectivity and will work on Nintendo Switch and PC. Joy-Con controls can be assigned for use with the wheel and its numerous buttons. The standard edition (around $80 USD) comes in red and blue coloured plastic, while a pricer "DX" edition (around $150 USD) features a red and black design, a clamp stand, suction cups, and includes "Deadzone Adjustment" so the player can adjust the radius of the wheel's sensitivity.

Unfortunately, there is no confirmation of a western release as of yet, but both wheels will go on sale in Japan this November. Pre-orders are live now on Play-Asia.com.
