WPCentral is reporting that Pac-Man Kart Rally will be the first kart-style rally game for Xbox Live on Windows Phone to feature local Wi-Fi multiplayer.

That means two players can compete against each other in the same room using two phones connected to the same wireless network and two copies of the game. It’s not as convenient as true online multiplayer, but still much nicer than offering no multiplayer options at all.

There are four distinct worlds (Pac-Man, Ghost, Katamari, and Dig Dug) with three tracks per world, and there is also a Windows Phone  exclusive track making 13 tracks in total.

Pac-man Kart Rally is due out soon, possibly as early as this Wednesday – May 2nd.
