Mario Kart 64 (マリオカート64 Mario Kāto Rokujūyon) is a Mario racing game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 video game console. It is the successor to Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and is the second Mario Kart game.

Changes from the original include the move to 3D computer graphics and the inclusion of four-player support. Players take control of characters from the Mario universe, who race around a variety of tracks with items that can either harm opponents or aid the user. The move to three-dimensional graphics allowed for track features not possible with the original game's Mode 7 graphics, such as changes in elevation, bridges, walls, and pits. However, the characters and items remained 2D pre-rendered sprites.

Emulation Information

Only one Time Trial ghost can be saved

As was the case in the official Wii Virtual Console release, the Controller Pak functionality is bound to the Wii save file and cannot be swapped, meaning that only 1 Time Trial ghost can ever be saved at a time.


There are no reported problems with this title.
