Mario Kart Arcade GP. It's an arcade sub-series of Nintendo's Mario Kart series, developed and published by Namco Bandai Games under license from Nintendo. It's noted for being the first Mario Kart to feature playable crossover characters: Namco's Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Blinky. Originally designed for the Triforce arcade board (also used for F-Zero AX), there are eleven characters and twenty-four tracks. Most of the game's sound effects came from Mario Kart: Double Dash!! including the pre-race countdown timer to commence racing.
