The next Mario Kart Wii TV commercial could be starring you, and your mad virtual karting skills. Nintendo has invited the public to the casting couch for the next publicity campaign Mario Kart Wii.
The Wii U is regarded as the red-headed step-child in the console world and has to come out swinging at every turn just to stay competitive with its big brothers. Nintendo is betting heavily on the success of Mario Kart 8, due for release in May, to jump start their sales numbers.
Zelda (already played through Wind Waker back on GameCube), Metroid, Star Fox, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart, F-Zero, none of these have came out yet and Mario Kart isn't due until Spring 2014. I am so close to just giving up and selling my Wii U. Nintendo couldn't even counter XB1 and PS4 with a franchise hit release. I've been waiting since release. I bought this console release day.
