Mario Kart Mini RC Cars
With all the new systems around, you’d think that companies would be spending big bucks on swag to get the most attention. It seems like the opposite happened, as big-ticket swag was almost entirely missing from this year’s show. The micro-sized RC Mario Karts were the hottest item at Nintendo’s booth this year, and could only be obtained by kicking some major ass at Mario Kart DS.
"I love my Mario Kart RC if only because I had to win it. I got randomly stuck with Toad making it difficult to stay ahead for most of the race, but I managed anyway. In the end, Toad's acceleration paid off as I was struck by a spiny shell moments before crossing the finish line but crept in anyway." - David Trammell
"Definitely the best of the bunch. It almost made waiting in the ridiculously long Mario Kart DS lines worthwhile." - Jonathan Lindemann
"If only I were better at that blasted game I could have had one!" - Mike Sklens
