Fresh from the GDC some new info regarding the control styles for Mario Kart Wii have hit as well as a few screens (which can be seen here). According to reports, the game will still make use of the steering wheel peripheral shown at last year's E3, but it won't be the only way in which to enjoy the game. Apparently you'll also be able to use the Nunchuk and Wii Remote combo, the Classic Controller and even a GameCube controller.

Other info comes in a few changes to the race mechanic in that you'll no longer boost out of power-slides with a button combination at the end, now it will result in how long you can hold your power-slide. Equally when launching off jumps shaking the Wii Remote will make you perform tricks which will also result in a boost when landing.

Classes remain at 50cc, 100cc and 150cc, however, these are distributed throughout the vehicle modes as exclusive race classes. So, 50cc is exclusive to Karts while 100cc is exclusive to motorbikes. 150cc will be a mixture of both.

Nintendo are still maintaining you'll be able to race as your Mii character as well and stats will, as you would expect, be tracked via online leaderboards with mention of a Mario Kart Wii Channel possibly appearing in the near future after the game's release.

Due to launch in Japan in April, Mario Kart Wii joins Super Smash Bros. Brawl as another must-have Wii title for Wii owners. We'll give you more updates on both of these games as it becomes available (and relevant).

Wow, the graphics look awful. Should be fun though.

not something the s***** Wiimote steering wheel device can do.
I can't speak for the actual steering wheel casing, but I thought Nintendo handled Wii Remote sensitive controls excellently in Excite Truck and that game is pretty old, I'd imagine they're even better at getting the most out of it by now
