The first trailer has arrived for Nickelodeon Kart Racers - the multiplayer racing game set to feature iconic Nickelodeon animated characters.
If you missed the announcement a couple of months ago, the game stars fan-favourite characters from the likes of SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rugrats, Hey Arnold! and more as they race on 24 different Slime-themed tracks.
You can customise your karts with multiple power-ups and special attacks, and there are co-op and local multiplayer modes for the whole family to get stuck into together. You can also jump right into a single-player battle mode to win cups and collect kart upgrades - perfect for those who prefer to play alone.
The trailer confirms that the game will be available on Switch on 23rd October, so there's only a little over a month to wait.
Are you excited for this one? Are you a fan of the shows that are represented in the game? Let us know below.
Rugrats and Hey Arnold? That's bringing me back to my teenage years!
No interest in this whatsoever. Got Mariokart.. nuf said
Im not sure what system's game footage was shown but the character models look like PS2 SpongeBob games. I hope it is good and not just a cash grab but the Gamemill label isn't reassuring.
ehhh if it’s just these four shows ill have to pass til it’s in the bargain bin
Being able to race as Donatello is quite tempting, but it looks like a poor man's Mario Kart.
I was hoping that it will be THQ made game but it’s from other developer.
Seems like it won't be winning any awards for the character selection or franchise rep (expected at least 1 or 2 more franchise reps) let's see how it plays October.
No Ren & Stimpy?
No sir, I don't like it.
The return to popularity of Nintendo marks the return of the franchise kart racer.
It's been eightteen years since Nicktoons Racing, which featured largely the same characters. So a return is less exciting than it may sound. And this is coming out ten days from now? With character materials and lighting looking like that?
Needs more cartoon franchises
But, PS4 & Xbox1 will also get Nickelodeon Kart Race.
Guess, PS4 & Xbox1 also have shovelwares too.
There's something very "Madagascar Kartz" on Wii about it.
IMO, this look like a Mario Kart clone, from the powers to the way they jump ... It Could be good regardless...
I was hoping for Invader Zim to make an appearance, but I'm kinda glad they don't have him or Gir in there... the environments look too basic, and the animations are rather stiff.
Certainly a cash grab, although whose kids still watch Rugrats or Hey Arnold! ?
@ReaderRagfish is it more though? the way they push those four in the trailer makes me think there isnt much at all beyond these
y no Zim tho?
The racer this game NEEDS!
You know what would have been a great idea? Instead of making a new game that won't sell for obvious reasons, why not strike a deal with Nickelodeon to add their characters as DLC to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? I know Nintendo is still getting the hang of the DLC thing but I think that it would be incredibly successful, and in this case appropriate. Smash is a completely different beast as I think its best reserved for video game icons, but I don't see the harm in bringing in characters outside of video games for Kart.
Very dated visuals...but nostalgia may get me. If it’s priced decent.
The graphics look pretty terrible, but that’s not the most important thing at the end of the day. I love TMNT and kart racing games, so I’m looking forward to trying this out. At least it can’t be worse than All-Star Fruit Racing...
£59.99 AAA goodness right there
Oh! Oh! Now THIS is the game we've been waiting for! A system-seller for sure!
Yes, I'm being sarcastic.
@foodmetaphors It would be a case of very crappy and a bit deceptive advertising if that is the case. However, we have seen cases (even in gaming) where the advertising doesn't necessarily reflect the final product for whatever reasons
BOOYAKABUNGALA!! (Or Booyakasha + Cowabunga + Goongala for those who are playing along.)
No Jimmy Neutron?
Angelica is in it! And it looks like the Dreamcast Wacky Racers. Please be decent as more interested than Sonic Kart...
Going to get this for my wife and me we love all the nicktoon characters featured in the game.
i got mario kart on the wii u so this will be something good for my switch if the gameplay is as good as mario kart.
This better have AAAHH Real Monsters characters...
@SheldonRandoms while the show regulars like patrick, squidward, spongebob, and his ole gal sandy are definitely the most obvious and best picks, i wouldn't mind mermaid man and barnacle boy, seeing as we actually see them drive a few times.
This might be as good as the old Nicktoons Racing game I had for PC.
Still looking forward to this, some of my most favorite cartoon characters in one game. I know its not going to be mario kart level quality but just hoping it fun enough to enjoy and possibly lead to a bigger and better sequel.
Does anyone in that series drive? (aside from Mr. Handicapable, Leo)
Well they could, just as easily as the Rugrats can, I suppose.
And in Korra, everyone drives.
No Zim = No interest
I hope it is good (even though we know it probably won't be). Old Nickelodeon was the stuff.
Wild Thornberries, Fairy OddParents, Avatar, and Zim are needed. Just overall variety in show representation is needed.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is so much prettier than this!
This is a game I'm expecting to be bad but hope it surprises me. Like the Teen Titans Go to the Movies of video games
@rjejr As a kid, I played Madagascar Kartz on the DS, thank you.
Reptar god tier
@Pod Well we could have Aang ride his, um, Air Sphere.
@PlusUltra Indeed, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy would probably get the invisible boat mobile over Fred Rechid, but if Fred manages to break a leg somewhere in the game, then that's.....sniff would be SWELL!
Or be on Appa, hovering just above ground.
Wait... first time ever? That’s not true.. I remember playing the original on my PS1
@MH4 You're welcome?
@SheldonRandoms ohhhh fred is the ...................leg...........................guy. My leg guy in the game would be pretty swell, everytime someone bumps into or hits his car, mmmmmmyyyyyyyy llllllleeeeeeeggg. And if we're lucky, game over man game over, but I think that's a totally different guy....perhaps?
This game is going to suck. The graphics look like a ps2 game.
@menzo1986 There is no chance the gameplay will be as good as Mario Kart. This is a budget title made by a company most known for shovelware, so quality and gameplay wise, this won’t be anywhere near Mario Kart. There’s still a chance this will be a decent, good and fun kart racer and I really look forward to trying it out, but if you’re expecting the same quality as Mario Kart you’re gonna be very disappointed.
I don't really see TMNT as Nickelodeon characters, but whatever. I think I'll just stick with new Sonic Racer that is coming out.
I has TMNT and Reptar, so I will be trying it out.
Also it looks more like a Sonic Transformed ripoff than a Mario Kart one which is a plus for me.
Hopefully, this game also includes some Avatar and Danny Phantom love.
