The iconic Rainbow Road track from Super Mario Kart for the SNES has been re-imagined for Halo 5: Guardians by user xXBarthXx. The map can be raced on, supports up to 10 players and maintains all the frighteningly sharp turns, thwomps and ill-placed gaps of the original.
YouTube user Forge Labs give the map a playthrough in the above video. Unlike the original track, when players fall off the fan-made ‘Halo Road’ they need to respawn, the thwomps lack faces, and Lakitu has been transformed into a grunt. I’m not sure how he’d feel about that.
Rainbow Road isn’t the first fan-made map to feature in Halo 5, with Star Trek TNG’s Enterprise-D getting a Halo makeover late last year. Microsoft recently announced that Halo 5’s Mythic Warzone Firefight (played on the Escape from A.R.C map) would be returning with even higher RP rewards.
