Donut Plains 3

Comparison videos of retro tracks in Mario Kart 8 are certainly doing the rounds at the moment, and popular YouTube channel GameXplain has created a nifty split-screen video comparing the classic Super Mario Kart track Donut Plains 3 to its reimagining in the upcoming Wii U title. Check it out below:

Nintendo EAD and its collaborators have created plenty of remakes of the most popular Mario Kart tracks throughout the course of the series' history, with visual upgrades and tweaks to the courses. The SNES tracks are by far the most rigid and flat in the franchise, so they're a good baseline test to see how Mario Kart has evolved over the years.

What do you think of the Donut Plains 3 reboot? Does it lose or gain magic in the transition to HD? Let us know, as always, below.
