A few months ago, it was revealed that THQ Nordic had set plans to bring back various Nickelodeon games from the early to mid 2000’s for a new generation, possibly with sequels to those games being on the table. It was a surprising announcement, but not necessarily an unwelcome one, given the strong IP on offer and that all-important nostalgia value. Though there hasn’t since been anything else to report on this front, a new GameStop listing seems to indicate what one of the first games from this initiative will be.
A game called Nickelodeon Kart Racers has shown up in the database, marked for a 23rd October release date, although there are no screenshots or boxart to go along with the listing. Some of you may remember Nicktoons Racing, a Mario Kart-esque game featuring Nickelodeon character that saw a debut on Gameboy Color, before being ported to various other platforms. It received two sequels, one on PC and one in arcades, though the franchise has been dormant since 2009. If this listing turns out to be accurate, it would seem that THQ Nordic is looking to bring back the racing series with a fourth entry.
