2 new Mario Kart 7 characters revealed

An unlikely duo join the race...

Nintendo has revealed two brand new characters for the upcoming 3DS instalment of Mario Kart.


The pair of new racers are *drumroll* Wiggler and Honey Queen for the first time in a Mario Kart game. We certainly weren't expecting those two.

The reveals come from the latest issue of Nintendo Power, in which the magazine suggests that there are still even more new racer reveals in the pipeline.

Wiggler is a Mario roster regular and has appeared in a variety of 2D and 3D Mario games, Honey Queen on the other hand debuted in Super Mario Galaxy and returned in its sequel. Mario Kart 7 will be her first appearance outside those games. Good on her.
