    It's officially licensed by Nintendo. Sorry if it's in wrong section/similar post.

    JUST SOME CLARIFICATION:
    • It works exclusively for Mario Kart 7 (ONLY ONE GAME)
    • It is made and initiated by Hori. Nintendo just approves it.

    Nintendo has officially mastered making the stupidest and most illogical peripherals.

    Not surprise, so called it. :P

    I see people using this. It is a plus when you can still have the 3d on without breaking it using it like a steering wheel.

    So what?
    It's optional.
    Some people may want to use it for gyro-scope, it will be much more comfortable.
    You can make a toaster attachment for a computer but so what it's optional!

    It's optional.

    It's by Hori, even though licensed.

    You won't need this crap. It just adds on to gyro mode. It doesn't seem as bad as the slidepad add on, why complain? It's NOT NEEDED and ONLY FOR ONE GAME.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    COOL. My first reaction on this without looking at any other reaction :P I'll buy one for the fun.

    Guild it is not necessary to use the wheel, some people like and others don't. I loved Mario Kart Wii playing with friends.

    But I'll never use this thing in public :P

    I've used the word unbelievable far too many times that I now need to look for another word in the dictionary. Surprised by Nintendo's actions lately.

    you will see these in the pound shop soon enough which is how much they are worth in the 1st place, i really don't understand why they charge so much for a piece of plastic, i brought a wii zapper from the pound shop ages ago, it still works just as good and didn't cost me £20+

    Isn't the whole point of the 3Ds that its portable?
    With all these addons, might as well carry a wii with you.

    But Nintendo will licence any accessory short of a triple-headed ribbed brass dildo with chrome horns.

    That is why these add ons can easily be inserted/removed. And they are optional.

    Anyway it's only for MK7, so I won't really bother.
