Mickey's Speedway USA is a Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color game starring Mickey Mouse. It was developed by Rare and published by Nintendo under license from Disney Interactive. It is a traditional kart racer styled after the Mario Kart series and Diddy Kong Racing.

Storyline

Mickey's dog, Pluto, is captured by the army of Weasels for his "diamond" collar (later found out to be fake). As one of the drivers, including Disney characters such as Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pete, the player races on tracks in the United States, based on locations such as New York, Alaska, Florida, Indianapolis, Grand Canyon, Chicago, Dakota, Texas, Colorado, Malibu, San Francisco, Yellowstone National Park, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Seattle, to find the Weasels and save Pluto.

Gameplay

Mickey's Speedway USA includes a Grand Prix mode and multiplayer racing and battle modes. Six characters are available initially, and four additional characters can be unlocked. The default characters are paired in likeness, and each pair is given the same statistics, such as Donald and Mickey having average statistics, or Pete and Goofy having a concentration in speed and quickness.
