Have you ever looked at a Nintendo game and thought it needed just a little more Waluigi in it? Mario Kart 7 on 3DS, despite being a fantastic game, is entirely lacking in the Waluigi category. Thankfully, modders have fixed this! By replacing the Queen Bee, it's possible to import Waluigi's model, voice, and visuals, making the lovable villain entirely playable. A video showcasing this mod is available now, and players will soon be able to download it for themselves.
