Nintendo has made one of the best games of the Nintendo 64 available on the Wii U Virtual Console, Mario Kart 64.
Originally released for the N64 in 1997, the game represented the first 3D entry in the racing series. It also brought us one of the worst and most feared weapons in gaming, the blue shell.
With 4-player multiplayer, the game came with one of the best versions of the franchises Battle Mode.
Put the pedal to the metal in this worthy successor to the Super NES classic, Super Mario Kart. With improved courses and a revolutionary head-to-head four-player mode, Mario Kart 64 is sure to win the heart of any race-driving fan. The game includes 20 different courses filled with dips, valleys, jumps, tunnels and bridges. Smooth, precise control will bring players back time and time again for freewheeling fun.
One thing to note with this version of Mario Kart 64 is that it does not support ghost data.
Mario Kart 64 is available now on the Wii U Virtual Console Store for $9.99 / £8.99 / 9,99€.
