Mystery Images

By Tucayo (talk)

HI, readers! I’m your reptilian Statistics Manager, Tucayo, and welcome to Mystery Images! This month I decided to try something different again. It’s the 20th anniversary of the Mario Kart series, so Gamefreak asked us to theme our sections after that. I thought it would be an easy thing to do, but turns out it wasn’t. Doing the characters would be too easy, and the karts would be too difficult. So I decided to have you guess the courses. Uhh… I think it didn’t exactly go as I planned, but here you go, the icons of 5 courses from 5 of the Mario Kart installments. Just guess the course and the game.

Hiding Koopa

By General bob-omb (talk)
Here we go! with some good 'ol Mario Kart 64. Being my first Mario Kart this game is very nostalgic and is one of my favorite games. A fitting pick for the 20th anniversary of our favorite (and only) MarioWiki newspaper the 'shroom.
