Nintendo Commissions Full-Size Mario Kart Karts

When you’re coming up on the 7th game in a franchise that hasn’t really changed too much since its second iteration, you need to do some pretty seriously advertising. That’s why Nintendo went all out for their Mario Kart 7 promotion and had West Coast Customs create some life-sized models of the actual “Mario kart” as well as the bee kart for the L.A. Auto Show.

The karts are just replicas, but they look pretty impressive. In the slightly awkward words of one of the West Coast Customs guys, “we took the digital that’s on the screen and created a reality.” That they did. After all, this is really the only way to really get a feel for the amazing 3D experience the Nintendo 3DS provides, or at least, Nintendo is going to harp on that repeatedly. But I find myself less excited for Mario Kart 7 and just longing for a Mario Kart reality TV game show.
