mario kart screens and details

The day that many Nintendo fans have been waiting for has arrived. Early this morning, the Japanese gaming publication Famitsu Weekly revealed the first Mario Kart Double Dash screens and details (scan of article). Throughout the day, Nintendo revealed additional details. The game will feature sixteen playable characters, including Mario, Luigi, Peach, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Yoshi, Birdo, Wario, Waluigi, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Koopa, and Paratroopa, along with a number of hidden characters unlockable throughout the game. Each vehicle carries a driver and passenger; the two can exchange seats at any time. We expect this will lead to some very fun co-op multiplayer options. Weapon selection includes six standard items and eight passenger-dependent items. Finally, 8-player LAN play via two networked GameCubes over the console's Broadband Adapter has been confirmed and is set to be unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo next month.
