With Mario Kart 8 just around the corner, it looks like Japanese peripheral manufacturer CyberGadget is getting ready to cash-on on those who want a racing wheel experience for the game. Of course Wii-remote racing wheels have been around since the Wii, but this new peripheral is a stand that comes with a clamp, making it possible to attach the GamePad to the stand and use it as the wheel itself. The device will retail for about $42 in the region. Of course, if using the GamePad isn’t your thing, the Wii-remote wheel is still a possibility and comes as an available attachment. There’s no word on when anything like this will be available in the West, so it looks like Japan is getting the best tool for Mario Kart 8 sessions until further notice. What do you think of this? If it functions well, it could be the perfect accessory for games like Mario Kart 8 and Project Cars, when they’re released. local_offer japan mario kart 8 Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Japanese gamers line up for Splatoon 2 and Sw Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go Japan's My Nintendo sold out of Switch in 3 minutes The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Switch is insanely popular in Japan Hopper200456 OH PLEASE COME TO AMERICA Ony Oooh shiney :° NintendoFan It needs to come to everywhere ActivesiN thats sweet, hopefully it comes to North America Zorpix that’s pretty nifty o,o jjbredesen That looks really cool, now lets get the zapper from E3 2011! Hopper200456 That zapper looks so iffy! I feel like I wouldn’t be able to use it in fear of the Gamepad falling and breaking jjbredesen Yeah, but they can fix that XD and it would not work for games like COD xD Hopper200456 Hahaha, yeah that would be bad, haha Wooopigsooie Well, there is that screw hole in the back of the gamepad it could securely attach to, though still a bit unsettling I’d agree. Selina Kyle Why is Japan always getting the good stuff? Keith Japan is getting the “good stuff” 1st because the Wii U is from their market. And speak for yourself about being poor & dirty, some of us American’s actually work for a living to afford nice things!! Mario It’s true. Frank Shelton Oh so that’s what that screw hole is for on back of the pad. kentray1985 Wow I really want to buy this. Please Nintendo bring this to America! Sdudyoy This is something I’ve wanted someone to make since the Wii first came out. darkcreap This is a great thing. The trouble I’ve seen with the Wiimote is that it is not an accesory fixed to a certain point, so it is not like driving. This gamepad stand could be the perfect complement to make the gamepad a racing wheel. palomino blue That should allow the wheel accessory for Wii Remotes to attach to this thing too so it has a fixed axis. That way more than one person can use it. ben It does ShortyStock That DOES look cool, but I got nowhere to clamp it to 🙁 CEObrainz Looks nice and all but I’d still rather use the Pro Controller. If it retails for a cheaper price in the UK, I’d consider buying. Skelterz It looks cheap i woulden’t pay 40 whatevers for that lol i’ll just use a pad. Rinslowe I’d pick this up… Just to add to the collection. wiimenonowiiu I want one steveb944 This would get as much use as my 3DS Kid Icarus stand, none whatsoever Aaron Newman I don’t really see the point of this as the gamepad will function as a wheel without the stand. It would just get in the way as you would have to have it on a solid surface rather than just holding it up. I’d like to see a set of pedals with analogue control the plugs into the gamepad expansion port. That would be perfect for Project CARS.
