Here’s That 3DS Steering Wheel You Didn’t Ask For

Japanese game peripheral maker Hori is releasing a 3DS steering wheel accessory for the sole purpose of bringing the Mario Kart Wii experience to upcoming 3DS title Mario Kart 7.

I don’t know about you, but I never used the Wii’s plastic steering wheel. In addition to being totally fugly, the wheel serves no purpose. Mario Kart 7 is played using traditional controls and tilting the system will only botch the 3D effect and undoubtedly disorient the player. So what’s the point?

The accessory will be released in Japan on December 1 for ¥1,280.
