Balloon battle in Mario Kart Wii

Check out this video of a team battle taking place in Mario Kart Wii. It looks like you start off with 3 balloons, and go around bursting your opponents'.

Mario Kart Wii's release date in the US has now been confirmed as April 27th.

First the fish in the Summit and now these team battle balloons, glad to see Nintendo is bringing in some of their older franchises into newer games in some form or another.

Looks like fun. I will so get this on launch day. My complaint is that the graphics are the same as the gamecube (excluding bloom and framerate). What a shame.

Is that the course from the N64 version. That place was the best place for playing balloon battle. Plenty of hiding places.

Bigger and fun.

Reminds me of the old days playing battle. Last week on my virtual console. Man this is going to be great. Did I see a bunch of people. Perhaps that was an online battle?

It would not be a Mario Kart game without balloon battle. Good to see it though.

This kind of looks like the level out of Mario Kart 64, my favourite one.

Can't wait. I wish they wouldn't put such odd looking vehicles in the game and just leave it at go karts, which is what made the game hot in the first place. But whatever I guess, it is what it is. Man I miss the old days of games, when they were original, simple and FUN. Also they were beautifully rendered for the time period they came in (the good and classic games that is). I want something original, new and fun. Remakes are cool, but that's all we get it seems these days. A bunch of FPS, anime looking RPGs and typical fighting games. Gaming isn't what it used to be.

I'm going to do balloon battle so many times online.

Ok. Now I want this. SO BAD.

Yes! This was by FAR the best part of Mario Kart 64.

I wish they would have the Last Man Standing balloon battle. That was the reason I wanted the game.
