Mario Kart had its start with the release of Super Mario Kart for the SNES in 1992. The game had the basic formula of racing against other drivers while using items and winning. Super Mario Kart's character included Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool (later renamed peach), Toad, Yoshi, Koopa Troopa, Bowser, and Donkey Kong Jr. It had items like the Super Mushroom for speed, Koopa Shells for attack, Banana Peels to slow down, coins, etc. This is retro to talk about Super Mario Kart.
