When a Twitter user asked Musk if a version of the Nintendo racing game “Mario Kart” would be included in Tesla vehicles, Musk said Nintendo didn’t give Tesla permission to licence the game.

“We tried. Nintendo won’t licence it to us,” Musk said of Tesla’s effort to include the game in its vehicles.

In October, Tesla said it included classic Atari video games as hidden Easter eggs in its latest software update, but didn’t specify which games were available. Musk said in August that he had hoped to include “Pole Position,” “Tempest,” and “Missile Command” in the software update.

Four games were available as of early October, according to a video from the YouTube channel, “What’s Inside? Family,” three of which Musk had not mentioned in his August tweet.

These are the games that were available in Tesla vehicles as of October, as well as the ones Musk has said he wants to include.
