Retro Stage, also called the Retro Tracks or the Retro Grand Prix, is the title given to all of the Tracks and Battle Stages in the Mario Kart series. These tracks are featured in Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and are those that came from one of their precursors; in short, they're remakes of previous tracks. This Grand Prix is only available in Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii. In Mario Kart DS, each of the four cups has a sequence of tracks: Super Mario Kart, Mario Kart 64, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, and Mario Kart: Double Dash!! in that order. These tracks were given some edits, specifically improved graphics (for all tracks but those from Double Dash!!) and shortcut removals. In Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 7, there is no set sequence for each cup.
Mario Kart: Super Circuit featured Extra Tracks which included every track from Super Mario Kart. These tracks lack the original obstacles.
Half of the retro tracks (2 cups) in Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii need to be unlocked.
