To further facilitate this Nintendo introduced the Wii Wheel, a handy shell for the Wiimote that makes steering easier. Although it was something relatively simple it really helped the game appeal to a mass audience and was a huge success. When it came to producing Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS Nintendo again made use of motion controls but let Hori take control when it came to producing a wheel. But there was some doubt as to how useful it would on a handheld device."
