Super Mario Kart on VC this week

Relive the glory days for less than six quid.

The legendary Super Mario Kart will be available to buy from Wii's Virtual Console shop this Friday, 2nd April - which is appropriately named Good Friday.

This cherished SNES game will carry the usual price-tag of 800 Wii Points (£5.60/€8).

Super Mario Kart founded a racing series that has sold millions and millions of units in numerous guises - Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart Super Circuit, Mario Kart Double-Dash, Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Wii - over the years.

The idea was simple: put characters from the Mario games in Mario-themed vehicles, arm them with Mario-themed weaponry and have them race around Mario-themed worlds. Donkey Kong is obviously the best, though.
