The crazy power slides and vicious red shells are back! Mario Kart 64 was one of the earliest hits of the Nintendo 64 and is still considered by many as one of the best episodes of Nintendo's classic kart series. Several reasons justify such a high reputation. The 4-player multiplayer provides some of the most entertaining sessions ever. The driving experience has been refined with the addition of several advanced techniques. And the various tracks are filled with clever ideas and hidden shortcuts.

Unfortunately, for technical reasons, it will be impossible to save "ghost data" (replay data of your best times in Time Trials mode) in this version. We apologise for the inconvenience.

Put the pedal to the metal in this worthy successor to the Super NES classic, Super Mario Kart. Mario Kart 64 boasts great graphics, tons of unique power-ups and a stunning 3-D version of the legendary Battle Mode. 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 – a trademark of all games from Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto – will bring players back time and time again for freewheeling fun.
