Mario Kart 64 is a title very dear to retrogaming enthusiasts who can now enjoy it in HD thanks to the work of a group of fans
Recently there has been no shortage of HD versions, as well as PC ports, of great classics of the past such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and the first three-dimensional adventure of the well-known plumber, but now it’s up to racing with Mario Kart 64! A group of fans has therefore revived this classic in high definition, but let’s go ahead with a little order!
Mario Kart 64: from almost 3D to HD racing
We have already talked extensively about this great classic for dear Nintendone here, a title that it wasn’t fully 3D yet and that it showed its runners almost as if they were “stuck” on a three-dimensional background while they still retained the movements and sprites typical of the 16-bit era. A fan group has though picked up Mario Kart 64 and brought it back to HD sauce!
Directly from their profile on Twitterwhich we leave you below, the fans have dedicated themselves to a long process of reverse engineering to make the title smoother, sharper and “clean” in every step. They practically put their hand to everything, from the selection of the pilots to the sprites, a truly commendable work. Look at the restored version with the “vintage” one to realize it.
Wow. It’s so beautiful with the HD characters, it makes me wanna shed a tear 🥲

Currently this fatigue is almost completed and while character models are already available for downloadthis team of fans has already stated that all the other news will come both on the aforementioned Twitter than on their channel Discord. If they then wanted to do the same thing with Pilotwings, then, it would really be the best.
However, while we wait to relive these races in high definition, how about passing the wait by enriching your collection of videogame masterpieces, retro and otherwise, by going to recover similar stocks at the best price ever?
