Super Mario Kart 8 More Information

Super Mario Kart 8 is a supposed demake of Mario Kart 8. Featuring many different stages not seen before and original variations on them not found in Mario Kart 8 or Super Mario Kart, and there’s a Battle Mode with 4 all courses to duke it out on.

Although this hack tries to be like Mario Kart 8, it doesn’t quite understand just how extremely different the two games are. It takes a lot more than simple map changes to match the design of Mario Kart 8, and there’s only so much the original SNES title is capable of doing.

You could still download Super Mario Kart 8 if just to see how different it is from the original Super Mario Kart; don’t expect this to really hit home for Wii U owners, though. If anything, this is pretty much its own hack.

Question : I have Downloaded The ROM Hack But What Do I Do Next?
Answer : Watch this video for instructions on what to do. When you download this hack the download will contain a .ips file (Not a ROM file), This .ips file is a patch which you need to apply to the original ROM in order to be able to play the hacked game. The easiest thing to do is copy the .ips file in to the same folder as the original ROM and make sure the .ips and .rom file have the same name, for example

  • Super Mario Kart 8.ips
  • Super Mario Kart 8.rom

Now launch your emulator and then open the ROM and you should be able to play the hack. If the hack does not load you will need to patch the ROM file with the IPS file.

Question : How Do I Patch the ROM File To Play?
Answer : Watch this video which will show you what to do. You need to download Lunar IPS tool and run it then click on “Apply IPS Patch” then select the .ips file and click ok, then select the Rom file and the patch will then be applied. Now launch your SNES emulator and open the ROM file.
