The Japan Times Online is reporting that Nintendo's kart-racing extravaganza Mario Kart Super Circuit (formerly known as Mario Kart Advance) is due for release this Saturday (21st July) in Japan, over a month ahead of schedule. The move is targeted at the beginning of the summer break for schoolchildren, no doubt with the intention of stimulating sales of the console over the summer months. Mario Kart Super Circuit is capable of up to four player link up gaming, and will no doubt sell through the roof amongst youngsters and older gamers who remember it on the Super Nintendo as well. After a slightly disappointing N64 outing, Mario Kart fans will be hoping for a return to the game's former glory. According to our sources, Mario Kart Super Circuit is still due out in the final quarter of this year in the UK. Related Feature - New Mario Kart
