Mario Kart: Super Circuit was the third Mario Kart game, released for the Game Boy Advance in 2001. It has 40 tracks, 20 of which come from Super Mario Kart, making it have the most tracks of any Mario Kart game.

Mario Kart: Super Circuit was the first Mario Kart game not developed by Nintendo EAD, Nintendo's largest in-house development team known for their work on the many Mario platformers and the entire Legend of Zelda series. Instead, it was developed by another Nintendo first-party developer, Intelligent Systems, who are known for their tactical RPG series such as Paper Mario, Fire Emblem and Advance Wars. Some elements from its predecessor, Mario Kart 64 were included, however. Along with that, Mario Kart: Super Circuit was the first to have 5 cups instead of the usual 4. It is the only known Mario Kart to own that feature.

Racers

Contrary to what the character selection screen suggests, lightweight characters do not have the best speeds. The instruction booklet makes these corrections, stating that the "Speed" rating listed on-screen actually refers to acceleration.

Lightweight

"Excellent acceleration, but low top speeds.
Not slowed much by dirt.
Easily knocked aside by heavier karts."' (Super Circuit instruction booklet)

Trivia

  • This is the first game in the Mario Kart series to have retro courses.
  • This is also the first Mario Kart game made for a handheld system.
  • This game lacked a few items including Fake Item Boxes, Triple Bananas and Golden Mushrooms.
  • The Lightning Cup was first introduced to this game. It was brought back in Mario Kart DS as a retro cup which ironically had Sky Garden in it which is in the Lightning Cup in this game. The Lightning Cup is also in Mario Kart Wii, 7, and 8.
  • This is the last game in the Mario Kart series until Mario Kart 7 to feature the classic go-karts and this is the last one to not have any unlockable characters.
  • This is also the last game in the Mario Kart series to have Princess Peach wearing her hair down.
  • No game after this one would equip coins as items that increase your kart speed, until Mario Kart 7, which came out ten years later (though some missions in Mario Kart DS used them as required player to collect them)
