Mario Kart 8: ZSNES Edition

Want to enjoy the fast-paced gameplay of Mario Kart 8 but can’t afford a Wii/U/They or wahtever they call it these days? No problem, now you can a-play the a-tracks on the good ol’ SNES (or ZSNES). Mama Mia! Super Mario Kart 8 is a rom-hack that transplants the modern game’s tracks into the classic SNES cart.


Super Mario Kart 8 is effectively a demake of sorts of Mario Kart 8. But it isn’t quite a verbatim translation (characters and graphical differences aside), and features many original stages and variations on Mario Kart 8 or Super Mario Kart.


It doesn’t really add anything else new – so no Wario here – but after all it is limited to editing the existing Mario Kart game. If you still enjoy booting up Mario Kart and playing with friends – this is a great way to refresh those tired out tracks.

Note: being an edited rom file you’ll need an emulator to run it. ZSNES is recommended.
