Much like SSBB, you can use pretty much any controller. GameCube, Classic, Sideways Wiimote, Wiimote+ 'chuck, you name it.Its good to hear that the online play has no lag. Thats what mainly kills me about SSBB. Not too sure about that wheel, does it work well? Can you use a regular controller?
Personally, I'm absolutely loving the Wii Wheel, despite it being just a pretty shell. it feels really good to use, it's responsive, and much like I thought, using the b-trigger for sliding is marvelous.
I haven't got around to online yet, since I'm more of a single player split screen person. I'm still learning the ropes a bit. I haven't owned a Mario Kart since 64, although I played MK DS a couple times.
The MK 64 remakes are awesome.
Question: I see a 2 player option on the Wi-Fi icon, can Mario Kart do split screen online/battle mode?
