Mario Kart Wii Has Been Hiding A Secret Mode For Almost Ten Years

Mario Kart Wii has been harboring a deep secret for the last nine years–an unused mission mode hidden within the game’s code. Eagle-eyed YouTuber MrBean35000vr uncovered the mode. MrBean35000vr, a Mario Kart 8 hacker and streamer, claims that within the 2008 title, the main menu actually has five options in its code rather than the four we’ve come to know.
