If you've been playing Mario Kart games since the beginning, you're probably going to have a bit of déjà vu on the Doughnut Plain track. The folks at GameXplain take a look at the Doughnut Plains level as it originally appeared in 1992's Super Mario Kart and as it will show up in next month's Mario Kart 8.
In some ways, it's pretty clear that this game is going to be the same but different, which is sort of par for the course for the series. Still, it's interesting to see what Nintendo's developers choose to change and/or when they revisit the courses in the long-running all-star kart racing franchise. As long it stays ridiculously fun, the recycling probably doesn't matter much.
