Mario Kart: Virtual Cup is a homebrew game made for the Virtual Boy made by DogP, in 2008.


The gameplay is very similar to Super Mario Kart, but without any other AI racers, as this is a homebrew techdemo. There are 3 modes but only Time Trial mode is properly implemented.

Bowser (SNES Rainbow Road -Mario Kart Virtual Cup-)

The blur at the bottom of SNES Rainbow Roadis an unfinished animation of Bowser.

  • All cups except Special Cup have only one course.
  • All of the drivers have the same design animations from the original Super Mario Kart during races.
    • The character animation for Donkey Kong in races (not on title or selection screen) is actually Donkey Kong Jr., from Super Mario Kart.
  • All tracks have the same theme- the original SNES Mario Circuit theme.
  • The reason why Special Cup is non-functioning is because of a course not chosen, and the game is a simple homebrew tech demo.
