Two more brand new characters have been revealed for Mario Kart 7. Yes, you'll be able to drive as Wiggler and Honey Queen for the first time in a Mario Kart game.
These two new characters were revealed in the latest issue of Nintendo Power and the magazine suggests that there are more new racers yet to be revealed.
You'll know Wiggler from Mario's 2D and 3D adventures - these caterpillar-style creatures made their debut in Super Mario World and have appeared in games ranging from Super Mario 64 to New Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Galaxy. However, this is their first appearance in a Mario Kart game.
Honey Queen is a more recent character, having only appeared in the Super Mario Galaxy games.
This pair will join Metal Mario and Lakitu as the new characters who will be appearing in Mario Kart 7.
