Mario Kart turns 20!
On August 27, 1992, Super Mario Kart debuted in Japan to positive reviews as 'addictive' and 'incredible'. In that same year on September 1st, it made it across the pond to our homes, and we weren't disappointed. The modes we played have not changed since 1992.
Grand Prix and Time Trial survived the test of time as well as the difficulty levels 50cc-150cc. Out of all the tracks that were raced on, the two that survive to this day are Bowser's Castle and Rainbow Road from the Special Cup. Fans everywhere are going to be celebrating this anniversary in all kinds of ways; the best of which is racing each other on these games. How will you celebrate?
Sometimes, the best way to celebrate such an event is to look back on how you got there in the first place. Besides, I've spent the last couple of months playing three flavors of Mario Kart (N64, Gamecube, 3DS). I think I can spare the time to simply enjoy the sights and sounds rather than just the victory lap for a change.
... but, Bowser's Castle wasn't in this game's Special Cup. There was one in each of the other cups.
And amen, to that!
i guess there's no better time for a "RL Mario kart" session
Not in Super Mario Kart, that's all I got to say.
Yeah because nothing says celebrating the 20th anniversary of Super Mario Kart like thinking of music from Mario Kart 64 :p
To celebrate, I think I will listen to the ending theme from Mario Kart 64.
Im celebrating by going to the local retro game store and buying Super Mario Kart and then playing through all the Mario Kart games.
Inviting my buddies to play every single cup in each of the titles (except handhelds) to crown the ultimate dick of racing games.
so true, just so true
I'll be playing Mario Kart 7 in August and September.
