Super Mario Kart Banner

May is a big month for fans of the Wii U and the iconic Mario Kart series, and you can be sure that Mario Kart 8 and its predecessors will get plenty of coverage. Nintendo will be shouting from the rooftops, naturally, and its own weekly Nintendo Minute show will be getting into the act.

Somewhat appropriately, the Nintendo of America presenting duo start off a month of coverage with the series' first title, Super Mario Kart, showing the multiplayer and single player. Those still unfamiliar with the 16-bit title will get a sense of just how different it is from modern entries; the franchise has evolved a great deal.

The SNES classic is available on both the Wii U and Wii Virtual Console platforms, of course. Are you still regularly blasting around these retro tracks?
