Mario Kart Just Turned 30! How Cool is That?

Mario Kart was officially released on August 27, 1992. Created by Shigeru Miyamoto, now this game is available on various consoles, from Super Nintendo, Game Boy Advance, Gamecube, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, to Android iOS. This game has a pretty unique cover, with Mario as the mascot, his brothers, friends, and enemies on go-karts wrapped in pseudo-3D tracks in Mario’s world.

In this game, each kart is given a choice of various weapons, ranging from turtle shells, sparks, to bananas. They are part of the Mario Kart experience, which was once considered a ridiculous and fun feature. The game is gaining commercial market speed very quickly, with multiplayer features and battles available for the four controller ports.

Nintendo has continued to evolve its series over three decades and 14 games, offering different vehicles, copilots, handheld versions, and various tracks.

Mario Kart Arcade GP DX is the third edition of Mario Kart in collaboration with Bandai Namco, which includes Pac-Man and other third-party characters.

Many people are also new to the excitement of playing Mario Kart from the original Super Mario Kart game with Battle Mode. Even old fans can play in this mode for years because of the experience and fun in it. Although the Grand Prix mode is no less interesting, where players will pop each other`s balloons with red shells and banana peels.

The difference is in Battle Mode, players will compete to get as many weapons as possible, especially to get red shells. This mode is not only about the ability to race, but also strategy. Because this mode is so random, it’s actually its biggest attraction.

Battle Mode provides a gaming experience for those of you who really want to have fun with friends, even more so with the fact that Nintendo already has royal-style games like Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros.

There’s Something Unique About Rainbow Road

There are already many tracks that have graced Mario Kart’s 30-year career. But one track stands out more than the others, and that is Rainbow Road. If other tracks -such as Wario Stadium, Baby Park, or Koopa Troopa Beach, are more pure gameplay; then Rainbow Road gives a different vibe.

When Nintendo re-created Rainbow Road for Mario Kart 64, the track evolved beyond just a race; it is a celebration. The added elevation and reduced gravity make it feel as if players are floating down a rollercoaster while enjoying a woodwind soundtrack mixed with the synth guitar.

It might take a new generation to make Mario Kart games can evolve again into something new. A change in which designers worked to break through various hardware limitations and issues thus further developing this legendary racing game.
