Mario Kart: Then and Now

Super Mario Kart came out for the SNES over 15 years ago, and though there have been many challengers since, the venerable Mario Kart franchise it spawned has remained the undisputed king of kart racing games.

The series has changed remarkably over the years, both in terms of graphics and gameplay. While the original laid the foundation by introducing many of the core items and characters, it wasn't really until Mario Kart 64 that the series would take shape as we know it today--blue shells and all.

Join GameSpot on an odyssey through time as they look at the long history of console Mario Kart games and examine how the characters, items, and tracks have visually transformed over the years. (Culture, GameCube, Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Wii)
