This Awesome Comparison Show the New Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road Course Next to the One For N64

Heck of a cool move here by gaming site IGN, playing on all our nostalgia for one of the best racing games ever. In reviewing Mario Kart 8 for Wii U, they made a side-by-side comparison of its Rainbow Road course with the one from Nintendo 64.

Personally, I’m partial to the SNES version of Mario Kart, although I doubt I’ll find any supporters here. That Rainbow Road course didn’t have any of the bullshit walls to keep you from falling off.

/concludes old man rant.

Here’s the trailer.
