Yep, that is fine as long as you are able to snapshot from the device.

Welp, it seems that my only chance is at Mario Kart 8, as I do not have any of the other games on my Wii U as Virtual Console.

Though I do have Mario Kart Super Circuit and DS, they are the original games, not the Virtual Console counterparts, so do they count? Probably not but doesn't hurt to ask.

Just when I was a fraction of a second away from beating Crinkle's top time trial, he beats his own record!

Image

The new record to beat is 2'06"85.

Remember, we have only until midnight tonight to break his record!

GS*Crinklepouch wins Week #1 of the Shellslingers Time Trial Event with the time of 1'59"30!

His default forum rank will reflect the win whenever we rip the Das Boot title from him. ;)
