Now that's 3D! For the upcoming Mario Kart 7 video game, Nintendo teamed up with West Coast Customs to create a real-life, drivable karts:
Two life-sized replicas of the Mario Kart cars driven by Nintendo icons Mario and Luigi, working vehicles that the company debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show this past week.
That's right: Working. Built by West Coast Customs, the two karts – identical to those gamers will be able to digitally drive come the December 4 launch of Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS – are electric vehicles that can actually be driven around. And some lucky gamers will get the chance to do just that, as Nintendo plans to give away both karts as part of a Gamestop PowerUp Rewards promotion during December.
