Mario Kart 64 Coming to Wii U Virtual Console in Europe This Week

No word yet on North America, though.


1997's beloved Nintendo 64 kart racing game Mario Kart 64 is coming to the Wii U's Virtual Console later this week in Europe, Nintendo has announced. It will be available there this coming Thursday, January 21, Nintendo of Europe said in a tweet today.

As of yet, there is no word on if Mario Kart 64 will also come to Wii U in North America on that date. The game is already available through the original Wii's Virtual Console.

Mario Kart 64 will cost £8.99 in Europe on Wii U, according to Eurogamer.

It supports up to four players and features some of the most memorable Mario Kart courses ever, including Moo Moo Farm, Toad's Turnpike, and Yoshi Valley. The game's Battle mode was also a lot of fun.
