Microsoft called Windows Phone their handheld gaming console, but despite the presence of Xbox Live on the handsets there has been very little evidence of the real multi-player gaming we expect from a handheld console these days.

It seems that’s about to change, with WPCentral reporting that Pac-Man Kart Rally will feature wireless local multi-player gaming, a feature that Windows Phone should really have shipped with.

Pac-Man Kart Rally will be the first Xbox Live title with local Wi-Fi multiplayer, meaning two players on two handsets can play against each other on a wireless network. Local game-play makes network lag a non-existent problem, so the experience should be good.

The game even includes a multiplayer Achievement, ‘Unbeatable’, giving an incentive to encourage your buddies to buy a Windows Phone.

WPCentral expects the game to arrive this Wednesday, May 2, starting a new area of a real Microsoft handheld console.
