While Mario Kart 8 is hands down the best iteration of the Mario Kart series to date, nothing beats playing the classics. Lucky for European users, they can nab Mario Kart 64 this Thursday (January 21, 2016) on the Wii U Virtual Console.
This is the first Western re-release of Mario Kart 64 for the Wii U — presently, the game is only available for Japanese Wii U owners or in the Wii Virtual Console. Will you be grabbing this Nintendo classic?
