Thanks to the modding community Kirby is the latest character to join the Mario Kart 8 ranks on Wii U. Previously we wrote about Sonic the Hedgehog and Captain Olimar from Pikmin joining the roster, now it's the pink puffball's turn to join the race - albeit unofficially, of course.

This is not the first time Kirby has been featured in a racing game, with the beloved Kirby Air Ride releasing on the GameCube back in 2003. Since then fans have been clamoring for the series return, with even a petition being raised for a sequel on Nintendo Switch. 

Which Nintendo character would you like officially adding to Mario Kart roster? Leave us a comment to let us know.
