Nascar Coming To The Wii

Posted November 25th, 2008 at 6:52 pm

The Wiire has news today that EA Sports is developing Nascar for the Wii. Apparently it will not attempt to replicate the Nascar games on the 360 or PS3 and instead will go the route of driving karts, possibly with caricatures of the licensed drivers.

No telling yet if heads of drivers will be massively oversized to balance out the cartoonish nature of the karts. While the karts may resemble an idea from Mario Kart, most likely the tracks will remain the same oval shape, true to the NASCAR way.

There has been a lot of discussion lately about why the more traditional sports titles don’t sell on the Wii. All-Play and what it stands for has been met with complete apathy. Here we have EA bringing Nascar over which seems all but guaranteed to fail. The Wii crowd is just not going to buy something with Nascar in the name…no matter how much it tries it will never reach the desired appeal of a Mario Kart.
