Earlier this month, during a special Comic-Con at home video stream, the Hot Wheels team revealed it would be bolstering its existing Mario Kart line with some new products - including the characters Cat Peach and Diddy Kong, glider karts and a special mystery Yoshi egg line.
Now, in the latest update, Famitsu has shared a glimpse of one of the upcoming sets launching in Japan (for 6,500 yen) at the end of this month. It contains a blue Yoshi racer, Mario racer, and a two-player track featuring Bowser. Here's a look:
It would appear that these products have actually already made their way to stores in the west, such as this listing found at Target in the US. Here's hoping even more come our way in the future.

Bowser looks like he was dipped in BBQ sause
Prepping for MK9?
Stop it, this is just cruel now. Let me buy the games I once played already on a new platform (seriously joking)
@Mallen001 That's the good thing about Lego and Hot Wheels sets — set it in a different place and voila, it's on the platform you want! 🤣
My wife and I bought this set a month ago at Target for my son. We live in TX.
I like mario kart soo ya this is for me.
I would love to have the entire roster.
Nintendo putting out more Mario Kart content in real life and on the Mario Kart Tour app rather then a new game.
@HotGoomba what kinda BBQ sauce you been getting? one with extra granite XD
I was about to comment that I feel like I've already gotten this...
My wallet: you don’t need this
My brain: you need this
This is a very cool set. Might have to get this & stash it away until X-mas (assuming it’s available before then)
MK9 needs a "story mode" like a rpg... with giant bosses and quests
@Krzysztof Yeah, I'm going to have to get this "for my kids".
@BrintaPap Making Mario Kart 9 right now would make zero sense. Most people are happy with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It's highly beloved, critically acclaimed and the best selling game on the system by far, in the top twenty best selling games every month since launch. If people want MK9, they need to stop buying up MK8D by the millions.
@Shamrock I'd like to see a hub world like Diddy Kong Racing and then bring back the cool mission system from Mario Kart DS.
@Deltath you are a 100% right sir. One can dream tho.
My son already has multiple cars of this series that he loves to play with. I don't think we need anymore!
@Nintendan_91 "what kinda BBQ sauce you been getting? one with extra granite XD"
You shouldn't take anything for granite!
I have a kid who would love this for his upcoming birthday! 🎂
