Capitalizing on the success of Mario Kart 8, Nintendo has decided to quietly add Super Mario Kart to its Wii U eShop. Now, as a result of this choice, a brand new generation of gamers can take the game that started it all for a competitive test drive.
Having retained its split-screen multiplayer option, the Super Nintendo classic is now available in all of its 16-bit glory. In fact, the only thing that’s separating you from playing it right now is its $7.99 price tag.
Eight dollars could be seen as a high price to pay for such an old game, but this is Super Mario Kart we’re talking about. It’s an instant classic, which surely costs a heck of a lot more in used game shops and online.
