Rising Star Games has today announced that Hello Kitty will be racing onto the scene on Nintendo Switch in Hello Kitty Kruisers, a multiplayer arcade racing game.

As you can see from the trailer above, the game features similar ideas to the classic Mario Kart formula, offering multiplayer racing action combined with items that can perform a variety of actions. Races take place on land, over water, and through the air, and you can either play in single-player or against up to three friends. You'll also be able to unlock a selection of outfits and vehicles as you play.

Hello Kitty Kruisers was also released on Wii U back in 2014 and, it has to be said, we didn't really find all that much to shout about when we gave it a 3/10 in our review. Hopefully some things will have improved this time around.

We'll be sure to keep an eye out when the game launches, both digitally and physically, this spring in Europe and North America.
