Overview

Nostalgic Bowser's Castle is Omonimo747's first well working custom track built following N64 Bowser's Castle's style. It features, in addition to the elements from the original track, an off-road way with some trickable bumps, more wood bridges, some pillars inside the castle, some portraits, torches, more boosts, a carpet with Bowser's figure and higher buildings, built on the rock, instead of plunged in the lava.
There is a little "Easter egg": Thwomps appear with Mario Kart 64's style (remodelled from scratch and imported with BrawlBox).

Slot Information

This track has Sound Trigger KCL for Bowser's howl: put it over slot 8.4.
