Overview

Nostalgic Bowser's Castle is Omonimo747's first custom track. It is built following N64 Bowser's Castle's style. The track 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 (sun and taimatsu), more boost ramps, a carpet with Bowser's figure, and higher buildings built on the rock, instead of being plunged in the lava.

Slot Information

This track has KCL sound triggers for Bowser's howl, so it is recommended to put it on slot 8.4.
