    Mario Kart is one of humanity’s greatest achievements. But what if Nintendo decided to get on that Tony Hawk tip and produce a title where the plumber and his put-upon brother Luigi had to battle it out in time trials while riding an electric longboard?

    The video above by CGI masters Corridor Digital renders that idea in spectacular fashion, with the power-ups, obstacles and bad guys you’d expect to see. Now I really want Nintendo to make this a reality.
