Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Mario Kart: Super Circuit is the third game in Nintendo's Mario Kart series. It was first released for the Game Boy Advance (GBA, AGB) in 2001, and was the sixth bestselling game for the GBA. Super Circuit utilizes Mode 7 graphics for its levels, while using sprites for characters and powerups and weapons, such as shells. Super Circuit was the first handheld version of Mario Kart and the first to include Retro tracks from previous entries in the series as it included all of the original Super Mario Kart courses.
Much of Mario Kart: Super Circuit's visuals are taken from Mario Kart 64, such as playable character sprites, menu graphics, and concept art.
