'Mario Kart 64' runs to Wii U in North America starting tomorrow

As reported by Destructoid, Mario Kart 64's Wii U Virtual Console version does not support ghost data, in case that matters to you. Nada. Zilch. Well, until this week, that is. Nintendo adds new games weekly to Nintendo eShop on the Wii U console, the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and the Wii Shop Channel for the Wii console.

From today, Wii U owners will be able to download Mario Kart 64, perhaps the most esteemed title in the storied racing franchise. I was the embarrassingly bad driver among my group. With improved courses and a revolutionary head-to-head four-player mode, Mario Kart 64 is sure to win the heart of any race-driving fan.

This Virtual Console version of the game follows the plot of the cult classic Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, but significantly alters the game's art style, level designs, and gameplay elements. These re-releases often have several new features like off-TV play and more.

Will this launch be enough to bring your Wii U out from hibernation? These courses include Yoshi Valley, Toad's Turnpike and Moo Moo Farm to highlight just a few. The re-release of Mario Kart 64 first took place in Japan about a year back then it was released for Wii U owners in Europe in January this year. Buying the game early will also earn you 10 My Nintendo Gold Points. Additionally, some of the most noteworthy Mario Kart tracks that have always fascinated gamers find their way into the game following a few improvisations. Yet another change is the split screen mode when a team of four players joins hands to play the game.
