The first portable Mario Kart title, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, is now officially available to play on the Nintendo Switch as of 8th February via the Nintendo Switch Online service.
Mario Kart: Super Circuit was originally released on the Game Boy Advance back in 2001. It has been re-released twice, on both the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U systems, back in 2011 and 2015 respectively.
Together with a slew of other Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles, Super Circuit is the latest to be brought to the current day Switch system. It was also revealed that F-ZERO: Maximum Velocity for the Game Boy Advance will be joining the Nintendo Switch Online platform in the future.
Up to four players will be able to link up and race together through the Nintendo Switch Online servers. This title contains popular courses such as Shy Guy Beach, Broken Pier, a collection of different Bowser’s Castle courses and of course, the GBA version of Rainbow Road.
The Nintendo Switch Online service costs $19.99 for an individual yearly membership or $34.99 for a family membership. To include the expansion pack, which includes services such as Nintendo 64 Online, those are $49.99 per year to $79.99 per year, respectively.
The part of the Nintendo Direct from the 8th of February that introduced the available games that you can play today can be viewed below. While Mario Kart: Super Circuit is a fantastic addition, I’ll definitely be diving into Link’s Awakening DX and The Minish Cap again. Sorry, I’m a huge Zelda nerd.
