With this year's holiday gaming release season finally drawing to a close, there aren't too many titles left to launch. Running with the front of the to-be-released pack is Nintendo's Mario Kart 7. The Big N created the live action commercial you see above to, and this is just crazy, advertise the pants off of their upcoming product.

There's something to be said for great live action gaming videos: they make fans happy. That's probably because most of us nerds would actually love to see real life versions of our gaming fantasies. Mario Kart? Why not? Who among us hasn't been riding or driving in a car and considered launching a red shell at the jerk that just cut them off?

I guess I'm alone on that one, yeah?

If you're looking for something else to read about this game, why not check out the story we tossed up during our time at the New York Comic Con last month? We had an extended preview session with the title and covered this version's take on rubber-banding. If you don't know what rubber-banding is, read the post.

If we're being completely honest, we like a different live action Mario Kart video a lot more than this one. The clip in question was done by freddiew. In fact, you're probably part of the nearly 15,000,000 that have already seen it.

Mario Kart 7 will launch in North America for the Nintendo 3DS on December 4th. The title is set to further bolster the gaming roster of the now well performing 3DS…which is good, because system owners need games.

Will any of you herd members be picking up Mario Kart 7 when it drops?
