Super Mario Kart Hacker Brings the Game Back to Life The Official Track Editor for Nintendo

Devolver Digital is releasing a Nintendo Switch game that will only be available in physical form

The original discovery stems from last year’s Nintendo leak which contained an early prototype of SMK from 1991. Here, he found references to a track editor in the code – revealing Super Mario Kart’s SFX-DOS functionality.

A “hacker guy” known as ‘MrL314’ has successfully restored the track editor used by Nintendo to construct Super Mario Kart.

This was Nintendo’s in-house operating system used for Super Nintendo software development – allowing developers to read and write computer data directly onto the console and then test it out right away in-game. It apparently took “several months” to restore this functionality.

There are apparently a few other level editors in the game. The above one allows you to lay down overlay tiles such as item panels and coins, and the other two are designed for AI control checkpoint data and placing down “3D” objects like Pipes and Monty Moles. There are some limitations – you can’t directly edit the track and objects placed must fit the theme of the level.

The SFX-DOS code discovered was originally missing some elements that have now been restored, and the plan is to release the prototype in the future.
