Mario Kart DS is more than 16 years old--the game itself is old enough to drive, now. In the years since the game's release, fans have eagerly been learning and following the storied scene of Mario Kart romhacks. It led to the release of projects that you might have seen on the forum before, such as @PabloMK7's CTGP-7 and @szymbar15's Mario Kart Zero. Now, a team of dozens of dedicated programmers, designers, and debuggers have banded together to release a brand new Mario Kart project.
CTGP Nitro is a Mario Kart DS romhack that adds a massive amount of new courses, 88 total, 56 custom, ranging from adaptations of Wii and Wii U-era Mario Kart stages, to unique tracks like Goomba Lake, Toad Oasis, and more. There's also alternate character skins for existing characters, letting you play as King Koopa, 16-bit Mario, and the original Donkey Kong. You can play the romhack on your own, or experience it with friends through online play with Wimmfi. A trailer showcasing the project is available to watch, if you're curious, but if you're already sold on the idea, then you can grab the v1.0.0 release in Delta patch form over at the official website for the CTGP Nitro project.
