Mario Kart Wii is a racing game for the Wii, developed by Nintendo EAD. The game features 24 playable Mario characters, along with two Mii types: Mii Outfit A, and Mii Outfit B.

Mii Outfit A is unlocked by getting first place on Special Cup 100cc and features a simple racing suit. Mii Outfit B is unlocked by unlocking all 32 Expert Staff Ghosts in Time Trials and features overalls (based on Mario) for male characters, and a dress (similar to Peach) for female Miis. Both Mii Outfits' colors can be changed by changing the Mii's favorite color. The Mii's weight can also change, from light (easily bumped, but slightly faster), to medium (everything balanced), and heavy (slightly slower, but can bump characters easily). The Miis' weight is determined by their proportions in the Wii's Mii editor. Altering their weight and height in the Mii Channel can be done to change their weight in this game.

Miis also receive voices for the first time, not counting small noises in Wii Play. There are four different voice types for both male and female Miis; a different voice is given to each gender and favorite color combination, with the pitch being different depending on the Mii's size. The kart's color scheme also changes depending on the Mii's gender: blue for males, and pink for females.

Miis appear in several different courses as spectators. Additionally, when playing as a Mii, statues or pictures of Mario characters in the courses will be replaced with a random Mii head.

A Mii Outfit C was planned for the game, but got cut.[1]
