Mario Kart Arcade GP – Episode 045

Explore the arcade series birthed by the unholy alliance of a Nintendo license developed by Namco running on a Sega board – Mario Kart Arcade GP. It’s the two biggest video game characters in a race to the finish as we close out our final featured episode in the Drivers miniseries.

Why didn’t Namco include more of their characters in the GP series? Is the Mario Kart music really all it’s cracked up to be? What are the console origins of Mario Kart?

We fly right off the rails with the unofficial fourth member of the Podouken crew – Jarrod’s (new) ancient soundboard. Plus we talk Smash Bros tournaments, banana peels, the proper way to say MKAGPDX, and end with a literal stinger.
