Feature: 20 Years of Mario Kart

Today is yet another Nintendo anniversary, in this case the 20th anniversary of Super Mario Kart's release in Japan. That's 20 years of powering around tracks and making other mascot's driving lives miserable, while infuriating their masters in multiplayer.

It's a series with enduring appeal that has evolved into one of Nintendo's guaranteed big-sellers. It's arguably evolved relatively little, with no amount of power-ups, boosts or flying mechanics taking it too far away from its roots as a kart racer. That's also a strength, as it can be enjoyed by inexperienced gamers who just want a fun race, compulsive players who master every track to achieve implausible times, and everyone else in between.

To celebrate the arrival of Super Mario Kart all those years ago, Nintendo Life provides a brief history of every major game in the franchise. And no, that doesn't include Arcade GP. (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Retro, Super Mario Kart, Wii)
