New information had surfaced from GoNintendo and NMag GamePro magazine of some new features that would be hitting Mario Kart Wii once its released. The information being snaking will be available, all drivers have the same vehicle, controls are those of Excite Truck, Baby Peach and Boo will make a debut as drviers for the first time, and there are 32 courses (16 new, 16 old).

Did you get all excited for a second? Sorry to break it to you but a Nintendo spokesperson commented on the new information and called it a rumor. "Nintendo has not announced any further information on Mario Kart. We've spoken to the magazine and it's just pure rumor and speculation on their part."

In any case Be on the lookout for this title in June or April.

You know GoNintendo is a good site for all the small news information even if it means throwing us into confusion, such as the latest Mario Kart Wii information. We've been telling you the title would be available / released in April yet the computer system for Hollywood Videos has a release dated slated for June 17, 2008.

If you haven't watched or picked up a copy of The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters then head on over to Joystiq. They announced earlier today a new give away for the DVD version to five lucky winners. Read this post for contest information.

The DVD launches here in North America this Tuesday.

GameStop has begun taking pre-orders for Mario Kart Wii and have stated it will be released on April 2, 2008. People are skeptical as the release date is "soon" and less details have been given out about the upcoming title. Don't be surprised if we report on some sort of correction in the future!

Have spare change laying around and don't feel like keeping tack? Now store your coins in these pretty awesome Mushroom Banks. Two versions are available: 1Up Mushroom and Super Mushroom, each retailing at $14.99. Unfortunately, of course, they're both available in Japan but you can import them if you want them bad enough. I unfortunately don't have a link for you, ahem, but if you do an eBay search you'll probably come up with something?

It has been revealed in today's Smash Bros. DOJO updates that World 1-1 (of Super Mario Bros.) will be a playable stage. Occasionally the stage will shift to World 1-2's setting. Also in the pair of updates Koji Kondo's "Ground Theme" for the stage was added in which you can listen to the remixed version here.

In Nintendo Power's "Pulse" section they answered mail sent in by the readers in which a question focuses on Super Smash Bros. (N64) on the Virtual Console. Here is their response:

“Upcoming Virtual Console releases are a closely guarded secret, but consider this: Metroid went up right before the launch of Metroid Prime 3, and Super Mario Bros. 3 arrived just before Super Mario Galaxy. If the pattern holds up, there’s a decent chance that we’ll see the return of the original N64 Smash before Brawl arrives.”

Not an official confirmation of course but certainly something to begin thinking about.

I feel now is the time to apologize for the lack of news updates this month and want you to know that news for Super Mario has been incredibly slow!

Have you ever wondered what the worlds of Super Mario Galaxy would look like in real life? Now is your chance to find out as we share with you the works of photographer Alex Duret-Lutz. He calls this series "Wee planets".
