Have a listen to this Mario Kart 64 prototype theme

Imagine Mario Kart 64 without the iconic title screen music. Weird, right? Today we got an idea of what that actually might sound like, Forest of Illusion shared an alternate Mario Kart 64 theme on Twitter. Have a listen to it down below.


It doesn’t sound like your typical Mario music. The theme comes from a prototype version of the game called Mario Kart R. That most likely means that this theme was a placeholder, which makes a lot of sense. If you don’t remember the final title screen music, you can have a listen to it down below.
