Slot on North American starting grid confirmed
Big John Games has confirmed the North American release date for its forthcoming DSiWare racer Kart Krashers. The magical day is 27th September, with a price point of 500 DSi points.
The company has also released a new trailer which features gameplay footage - you can check it out after the press release, which has been lovingly replicated below.
Kart Krashers from Big John Games will release on September 27th, 2012 on the Nintendo DSiWare™ service for 500 Nintendo DSi Points™, and in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS™ for $4.99.
Leveraging much of the same engine technology as Big John Games successful Thorium Wars, Kart Krashers is an action-packed single player racing game. However, instead of racing your competitors for the fastest time, the objective is to dive, skid, flip, and crash into as many objects as possible.
With every exciting crash, the driver is awarded points which then can earn them Golden Wheel rankings, the coveted award which is the key to becoming the Kart Krashers champion (and consequently, the ruler of the Kart Krashing universe).
There are ten stages of intense action, each filled with hundreds of opportunities to crash and rack up the points. Crashing into bonus objects will equip the driver’s racecar with special abilities. Pick up the magnet during the crash-fest and the driver’s car will attract all the nearby objects for optimal crash scoring. Smash into the shield object and the driver’s car becomes invincible and allows the player to blast through just about anything. The sweeper object can be picked up to widen the car’s smash path – an extra-wide swath of crashing destruction!
Each stage is loaded up with enemies to impede the driver’s crash-filled adventure. Aliens, robots, and even zombies will try to ruin the driver’s chances of earning the Golden Wheels; simply smash through them with the shield armed, or blast through them with rocket power to really earn those crash points.
