Super Mario Kart wasn't the only classic Nintendo racing game that Mario and Luigi star'd in, but way before that in 1988 in Japan they also appeared in the enjoyable racing game ' Famicom Grand Prix II: 3D Hot Rally ', which only recently has been fully translated into English on the Famicom system by AgentOrange and team. Playing in a similar style to that of Rad Racer with a flavour of other racing games of that era, you must drive as fast as possible around each of the 3 tracks against the time limit to win the race!
Throughout each of these tracks of which there aren't many, but they are BIG. You have to avoid all the other racers on the track, as well as obstacles along the way. Thankfully the game gives a choice of directions so you don't always have to go the same way, there's checkpoints for increased time, and you have the ability to boost and jump. From the look of the video above, this game looks like a ton of fun, and I can't wait to load up an emulator later today and give it a go!
A patching program such as beat or Floating IPS will be needed to add the hack/patch to the Famicom Grand Prix II - 3D Hot Rally (Japan).fds - NOINTRO ROM
