For those following the Mario Kart 7 news, we knew of two new characters: Metal Mario and Lakitu (pictured above). The Japanese site revealed that there would be two more new characters but we didn’t know who… until now.
Thanks to Nintendo Power magazine, we now know that the two other characters are: Honey Queen and Wiggler. Wiggler is in many different Mario games so that’s not too crazy… but Honey Queen is the Queen Bee from the Mario Galaxy games, seems pretty random to me. You can see their images from Nintendo Power below…
So now we have the full list of characters in Mario Kart 7 and they are: Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Peach, Daisy, Toad, Yoshi, Rosalina, Wario, Koopa, DK, Shy Guy, Lakitu, Metal Mario, Honey Queen, Wiggler, and Mii’s. Unless there are some secret additions that we’ll have to find out later of course. What do you think of this roster? Post your thoughts in the comments section.
