Super Mario Kart

– Super Nintendo


Publisher:Nintendo
Developer:Nintendo
Genre:Racing

Start your engines for the original, legendary Super Mario Kart! Consistently ranked as one of the best video games ever made, it launched the kart racing genre and spawned many smash hit sequels.

Choose from eight of your favourite Mushroom Kingdom characters - from familiar faces like Mario and Bowser, to Donkey Kong Jr. in his only Mario Kart appearance.

Burn rubber across tracks rendered in fluid Mode 7 graphics, including many courses that still feature in Mario Kart games today; like Mario Circuit, Bowser Castle, Koopa Beach and the infamous Rainbow Road!

Race solo against the CPU, go head-to-head in split-screen, and experience the original version of Battle Mode - the great multiplayer favourite. And it wouldn't be Mario Kart without the sublime controls; power sliding is still as fun now as it ever was!
