Unreleased Mario Kart XXL Tech Demo for Game Boy Advance Surfaces Online
Nintendo maintenance site Illusion forest bought “notorious” Mario Kart XXL tech demo – an offer by Denaris Entertainment Software for the Game Boy Advance, dating back to April 2004. It’s now available for download.
German development studio (founded by Turkish creator Manfred Trenz) originally introduced the game and its “dynamic and adjustable viewport engine with dual playing fields” to Nintendo of Europe. The demo is made up of a single track that uses Mario Kart content and features BGM from a PlayStation racer named Moorhuhn Kartwhich Denaris also helped develop.
Interestingly, this Mario Kart demo started life as a racing game called ‘R3D-Demo‘. The same developer has finally released a Game Boy Advance kart racer based on the CGI cartoon character Crazy Frog. Sorry!
You can see a more detailed history and watch Mario Kart XXL alongside R3D-Demo on Hard4Games YouTube:
