This infographic from Select Car takes a look at the evolution of the series from 1992 through today, featuring nearly 30 years of chaotic racing! It includes details on the Mario Kart games from the Nintendo 64, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Switch, and more.


The Mario Kart series as a whole has a pretty storied history, with the first game, appropriately titled “Super Mario Kart,” was released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) back in 1992. Today’s games in the series boast huge rosters of racers, but this classic featured eight different racers at the time: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser, Donkey Kong Jr., and Koopa Troopa. While it was an extremely limited video game as far as today’s standards go, it’s still a classic, and helped launch the road to the cool releases in the series today!
