Mario Kart Super Circuit is a video game for the Game Boy Advance, and the third game in the Mario Kart series. It was one of the first video games released on the console. The game, like the previous games in the series had eight characters. Many publications stated that you are able to have Waluigi in the game, though this is in no way factual. The game also includes the popular Battle mode as well as the Grand Prix mode. There are no new items in the game, although classic favorites do return. Each character has their own specific stats such as weight, acceleration and so on.

Since the Game Boy Advance was neither designed for nor particularly capable of running true 3D environments, the game was technologically similar to its SNES forerunner. Although the tracks were more complex and environments far superior in appearance, the circuits were still completely flat, in contrast to Mario Kart 64. This did not prevent them from being entertaining, however. Indeed, the game even included all of the tracks from Super Mario Kart; considered an impressive bonus, even if some tracks had a few missing elements (such as the Thwomps in Rainbow Road). Single-cart link-up play was possible, but the tracks were limited and players were limited to differently-colored Yoshis. With multiple carts and a link cable 4-player games were possible, as on the Nintendo 64.

Trivia

  • This is the only Mario Kart game to use the Japanese voices in Mario Kart 64 in the American version of the game.
  • The characters' speeds were meant to refer to their accelerations. Bowser's catchphrase in the manual is "There's nobody faster!".
  • This is the only Mario Kart game to classify Peach being lighter than Yoshi, while all other games classify that she's heavier than Yoshi.
