Product Description

Product Description

New Wheel for 3DS. Works with Mario Kart 7. Fast sending form France by Amazon.

Manufacturer's Description

Mario Kart 7 players can purchase an official Mario Kart 7 Wheel accessory for use on their Nintendo 3DS system. The official Mario Kart Wheel is sold separately to the game.The wheel attachment fits snugly around the 3DS, allowing players extra grip for the game's tilt-sensing gyroscopic controls. Mario Kart 7's arm-swerving control method is optional and sees gameplay transferred into first-person view. It's a control pad-free alternative similar to the Wii Wheel add-on for Mario Kart Wii.

OK, here are some impressions on the 3DS wheel. I've been using it since launch day and it's my preferred way to play Mario Kart 7, and pretty much my preferred grip for many other games. It makes the 3DS more comfortable to hold for long periods of time.

The most important part of the design for me are the bits that stick out at the bottom, the "legs" as I will call them. These legs actually give the last three fingers (those other than your index finger and thumb) on each hand something to hold on to, and prevent the corners of the device sticking into your palms. It totally removes the pain issue as well as the possibility of getting pins and needles - at least in my use.

The shoulder triggers are a nice bonus, and have almost as much movement as the standard triggers - definitely no more movement than the standard as they simply press the standard triggers down mechanically. They are hinged towards the middle of the unit which means they feel more responsive towards where your fingers are (see photos). They have a different feel and size, which can take a small amount of getting used to.

The circumference of the unit is good. All in all the wheel a couple of cm less wide compared to the Wii wheel (see photos). The thickness of the grip itself is slightly fatter than the Wii wheel. The curve of the grip is rounded on the back side of the wheel, and flat on the front.

You put the 3DS into the wheel shoulder buttons first, and there is some soft rubber to make the unit fit perfectly just above the legs. All in all, it's excellent. Everything you would expect from an officially licenced peripheral, and up to Hori's high standards.

One last thought: I think this makes the game feel more like a home console game rather than a handheld, which is great.

Bought this wheel for our seven year old to compliment the 3DS Mario Cart Game. Previous reviews did say that it was a great addition to the 3DS when playing any game.

How true!

My son will not remove the wheel from the 3DS. He uses it for all his game play of any game and creative projects.

Having held the wheel I can understand why. It does not add any noticable weight or bulk but makes the 3DS more tactile and a pleasure to hold. I have since picked up his standard DS lite which felt less comfortable to hold and a less relaxing experince without the wheel. (Which will not fit the DS lite)

In short, its a brilliant addition and everybody who has picked it up shares this observation.

The 3DS is held onto the wheel purely by four rubber mounts at each corner of the housing into the wheel and removing it takes but a second. Saying that, there is no suggestion that it would EVER fall out of the wheel. I recommend you buy one today.

Not sure why you'd bother using this a steering wheel (Especially as it's basically unusable with 3D switched on) but this is great for people with normal adult sized hands who find using the 3DS uncomfortable. The wheel makes the whole thing more like a 360 or PS3 pad and much more comfortable to use over a period of time. Well worth a tenner just for that.

i was a bit scepticle about this..but its really good and makes holding the 3DS less of a cramp on your hands.
so you can use it when you play other games on the 3DS also.
its better ergonomically..there are shoulder buttons on the top side of the wheel.

yes this is fun to have when playing mk7 but more importantly its much better for your hands - you don't get hand cramps/strain.

highly recommended

This "wheel" is nothing more than a moulded plastic holder for the 3DS which makes it easier to "turn" the wheel while playing Mario Kart. Of course, the screen turns with it, so be prepared to see the screen at an angle.

But Mario Kart is not all it's good for. I've got quite big paws, and the 3DS is rather petite with hard edges and corners which dig into and irritate my hands. All too often I'd find myself knocking the shoulder buttons by mistake. The wheel makes it much more comfortable to hold the 3DS for extended periods while playing other games, and keeps the edges of my fingers away from the shoulder buttons.

Of course, I could have bought a 3DS XL, but that's significantly more expensive and still has the hard edges and corners. This product is an ideal compromise.

This product is a must for mario kart fans. I have great fun using it. My four year old uses it all the time whatever game he is playing as it makes the 3ds easier for him to hold.
