Mario Kart 64

Mario Kart 64 may not be the most popular entry in the series, it certainly was one of the most important: Mario Kart made the switch to 3D with this one, and it also introduced 4 player multiplayer (with splitscreen, to boot). Therefore, it’s definitely a pretty interesting entry from a developer point of view, which is why the latest schmuplations translation is worth a read.

The translated interview is about Mario Kart 64, and features the following developers:

  • Shigeru Miyamoto – Producer
  • Hideki Konno – Director
  • Tadashi Sugiyama – Visual Director
  • Masato Kimura – Main Programmer
  • Kenji Yamamoto – Programmer
  • Tomoaki Kuroume – Character Designer

Nintendo Minute

Here’s the latest episode of Nintendo Minute, which is about Halloween (bet you didn’t see that one co… oh, you did):

Boo! Happy (almost) Halloween friends! We’re here with a few last minute ideas for a Nintendo-themed Halloween. We have a new very cool Mario Kart costume, we make some yummy but somewhat questionable looking Boo Bites and we carve a pumpkin into a Smash Ball! Let us know in the comments if you plan on dressing up as a Nintendo character this year for Halloween. You can send us your pictures with #NintendoHalloween. As always, thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week.
