"I can't get into specifics, but I do want to create a new and enjoyable Mario Kart that uses the unique functions of the Wii U," Konno told Nintendo Power.

Yet Konno refused to give away any more details, saying: "Anything beyond that I have to keep secret. Please bear with me for now."

We will Konno. Until then, perhaps you could come up with your ideas for Mario Kart Wii U. Let us know what you'd like to see in the game. Which characters should be in it, what retro courses should return and should it feature bikes and karts, or even two racers in one kart a la Double Dash?

Mario Kart 7 will be released in the UK on 2 December.
