Produced by Nintendo and published in 1992 for SNES, Super Mario Kart is undoubtedly one of the most popular racing games of the 90s. We are talking about a classic that I personally still jealously guard in my personal collection.
Super Mario Kart can be played from 1 or 2 players, even in split-screen mode. The various cups and game modes take place on 20 different tracks, each characterized by a particular road surface that can be for example asphalt, mud, ice, dirt or grass, just to name a few.
The game was also released in more recent years for other Nintendo home consoles, such as the WII, DS and 3DS. But let's go see the tips and tricks related to the Super Nintendo version, which especially in the 150cc class proves to be quite tough.
