Nintendo recently announced some new bundles in time for Christmas for its 3DS and DSI XL consoles to tempt consumers to part with their cash. The 3DS in particular has seen a slow start to its shelf life since it was first released earlier in the year.

Now gamers can have a similar experience with the 3DS after Nintendo announced the wheel that fits over the console. The add on was confirmed for release in Japan with no official line of other markets, but it is expected to launch worldwide.

It is set to cost around $17 or just over £10 in the UK and US, and the shoulder triggers on the steering wheel will allow for that perfect grip as you steer your way around all the tracks with Mario. Whether it will get many takers remains to be seen, with the younger gamers probably being the likely target of it.

The game itself promises to give the console a much need boost ahead of the release of the PS Vita, which could be a serious threat to future sales of the 3DS. Will you be getting the steering wheel for Mario Kart 7?
