This is a sub-page of Proto:Super Mario Kart.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

A prototype of Super Mario Kart was discovered in July 2020, dated August 6, 1992.

There's files for the 3 main regions, with kart-e being the American release, kart-j the Japanese one and kart-p being the PAL one.

Gameplay Differences

  • The 3 versions run at 50 FPS instead of just the PAL one.
    • Because of this the JP and US games run slower and the Staff Roll is not synchronized to the music.

Sound Differences

  • There's audio delay in many aspects of the game.
    • Because of this, for example the turbo at the start of the race is hard to pull off if it's done following the sound instead of the stoplight.
