The Mario Kart racing games are a series of Mario spin-off games; one Mario Kart game has appeared on almost every Nintendo system since the SNES with a total of 8 canon titles games.

Canon Franchise

Super Mario Kart

Super Mario Kart was the first Mario Kart game to be released. The game had a total of eight playable characters and 20 different racecourses to select from. This was the only title featuring five courses for a Grand Prix; all later installments only consisted of four. Super Mario Kart was also the only Mario Kart game to feature Donkey Kong Jr. as a playable character; he was replaced by Donkey Kong in all subsequent titles. Koopa Troopa was also playable in the game, but did not reprise this role until Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. Though the game was on a 16-bit system, it featured three-dimensionally rendered surroundings (thanks to Mode 7 technology), giving the graphics depth and a more realistic feel. This particular Mario Kart game was heavily influenced by Super Mario World, with some graphics and locations taken directly from the platformer. Yoshi noises from Super Mario World was also present, as was a computer-generated "hoomph" for Donkey Kong Jr.; actual voice acting was not yet possible.

Mario Kart 64

Mario Kart 64 is the first 64-bit and second Mario Kart game, which allowed for fully three-dimensional graphics, including the characters' and items' designs, and course layouts. It is the first Mario Kart title to feature Donkey Kong and Wario as playable characters, though there was still a total of eight drivers to choose from. The game featured 16 normal racecourses, as well as four battle courses. Mario Kart 64 was later re-released on the Wii Virtual Console for 1000 points and the Wii U Virtual Console for $11.38 .

Mario Kart: Super Circuit

Mario Kart: Super Circuit is the first Mario Kart title to be brought to a handheld gaming system and the third to the series. It was compatible with the Game Boy Advance (now with the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite as well), and was a 32-bit game. It was highly influenced by its two home console predecessors. The game featured eight playable characters once more, all of which were in Mario Kart 64. A total of 20 racecourses (plus the 20 courses from Super Mario Kart) could be selected from. This game also has a feature that allowed players to swap ghost data via the use of a Game Boy Advance connection cord.

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, the fourth game to be released in the franchise, introduced many new features. One difference is that in the game, there are two drivers to a kart, in contrary to all other games in the Mario Kart series; this allowed the player to hold more items simultaneously. Another new feature was Special Items: each pair of drivers had their own unique Special Item that only they could use, with the exception of King Boo and Petey Piranha, who did not have their own Special Item, but could use any of other drivers' instead. Mario Kart: Double Dash!! featured 16 race courses, as well as 20 different characters to select from, including the debut of Toadette. It is also the first game that has uniquely designed karts for each character, rather than just color variations.

Mario Kart DS

Mario Kart DS is the fifth mainstream installment in the Mario Kart series, and is the second title to be released on a handheld gaming system. Unlike Double Dash!!, this game returned to one-person driving and did not feature Special Items. The game featured 64-bit graphics, as Mario Kart 64 did, and included an all new Mission Mode, for which the player needs to complete missions within certain time limits. This game featured 12 playable characters: eight default racers, four unlockable racers, and one only available for racing via Download Play.

This game was also the second in the series to feature racecourses encountered in earlier titles (the first was Mario Kart Super Circuit, which included all Super Mario Kart tracks). In the Retro Grand Prix mode, players could select to race on courses from Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart Super Circuit, and Mario Kart: Double Dash!!. New courses, from the the Nitro Grand Prix, were based on the latest Mario platform games. Some tracks included pipes and flat blocks in the background based on those from Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3, and some Boss stages from the new Mission Mode were also based on this game. The course Tick Tock Clock and other Mission Mode Bosses came from Super Mario 64 DS.

Mario Kart Wii

Mario Kart Wii is the sixth mainstream game in the series. A new feature in Mario Kart Wii is Bikes. Bikes allow the players to do wheelies, speeding them up temporarily. Also, the players can do Tricks as they jump off certain ramps, to get a short boost when landing. Another new feature is the Mario Kart Channel. This channel, which you could install on the Wii Menu, allows players to check rankings, race ghosts, and compete in tournaments. Similar to Mario Kart DS, the game also had five Retro Battle courses. One Retro Battle course was featured from each of the past five games in the series, in addition to five all-new courses. Mario Kart Wii has 24 playable characters, with 32 courses to choose from. However, unlike the past titles, this game uses a size system instead of a weight system. It also features for the first time in the series where a character (Baby Daisy) made their franchise debut in a Mario Kart game since Mario Kart: Double Dash.

Mario Kart 7

Mario Kart 7 is the seventh installment of the Mario Kart series and the third to be released on a handheld. Players are able to exchange Ghost Data and play online in multiplayer mode. The game also includes four new playable characters: Metal Mario, Lakitu, Honey Queen and Wiggler. The game includes many new items and elements, including the gliders, the kart customization and driving underwater.

Mario Kart 8

Mario Kart 8 is the eighth installment in the main series. It was announced in the Nintendo Direct in January 2013, but it was officially presented at the pre-E3 Nintendo Direct on June 11, 2013, including the revealing of the game's title and a trailer. This installment introduces anti-gravity to the series. Also, features from past installments (such as bikes from Mario Kart Wii, and gliding and underwater driving from Mario Kart 7) are reused. There are also ATV's, a new type of vehicle in this game. This game features new characters to Mario Kart, such as the 7 Koopalings, but also introduces new Characters to the franchise such as Baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach. This is the first Mario Kart game to include paid downloadable content which includes crossovers with other Nintendo franchises such as The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing.
