Super Mario Kart races onto North American Wii U eShop

Super Mario Kart has appeared on the Nintendo eShop for the Wii U Virtual Console. The great-great-great-great-great-grandfather to the very popular Mario Kart 8 was spotted by NeoGAF and confirmed by Joystiq earlier today. The game still features its splitscreen 2-player mode, and can be purchased for $7.99.

Wii U owners, you maybe begin to rev your nostalgia-powered engines.
