Much like here in the UK, long-serving toy retailer Toys R Us is shutting its stores across North America. The worldwide chain also used to stock video games, and one employee just happened to stumble across a box that presumably fell down beneath some shelves back in the '90s. A box for none other than Mario Kart 64.

Dusty (and presumably empty, Toys R Us was famous for locking all its games away inside a prison-esque cage) but nonetheless intact, the little find suddenly makes us long for the good old days of chunky cardboard N64 boxes. Memories, eh?

So there you have it, a long-lost relic from a bygone age. What are your memories of that classic slice of Mario Kart action from yesteryear? Share them below...
