Legendary game designer and director of the Super Smash Bros. series, Masahiro Sakurai, has been playing Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit this weekend, and like other cats, his own seems to be equally as intrigued by Nintendo's latest release.
He shared the following image over on his Twitter account yesterday. This cat in the world of Mario Kart takes on the form of "demon beast" according to Google translate, so we're guessing it's not going great. Maybe this feline thinks the kart is a mouse!
The real name of this cat is actually called Fukura. It's not the first time it's been sighted, either. In fact, Source Gaming has an entire page dedicated to this cat's history - it's a female Scottish Fold.

What do you think of all these cat and animal-related reactions to the new Mario Kart game? Have you been playing this new game yourself over the past few days? Tell us down below.
All cats are demon beasts! True form! 😆 I have three. Between them, they have scratched and smashed the hell out of just about everything in the house. Including me.
Sakurai's cat for Smash
Rare pictures of Sakurai actually relaxing and not buried in work.
Hoo? you're approaching me?
Cats should be an item or a part of the design of a circuit in the next Mario Kart XD!!!
We need an actual new IP involving this cat.
No. No! Demon beast is actually quite accurate
I remember doing my own research on Sakurai's cat back in 2014. Everyone in the Smash community was spreading the rumor about the cat in Brawl but the face didn't look the same and I found she wasn't even born when Brawl released.
@mariomaster96 : Beat me to the punch.
Perhaps it can be the final boss in one of the Fighter Pass character’s classic modes.
Mario Kart 9 should definitely have a house interior themed track as a nod to this side game.
Imagine racers looking like RC toys zipping past pots, books, underneath couches, etc.with pets as obstacles.
Twisted Metal: Small Brawl was fun that way.
Nice Scottish feline, be getting told next that's its actually a british fold
The next Mario Kart game should have giant cats chasing the racers as a stage hazard.
This cat better be the next unlockable Smash boss. Master Hand and Crazy Hand don't have anything on this feline!
Still waiting for the day where Fukura crashes one of the Smash Bros. character showcases because Sakurai forgot to close the door.
@Ooyah they are demon little children
The true angel ones are rare on earth!
@SmileMan64 Or have puppies and kittens in the map play with their toys and playing with each other. Because it could be Nintendo Dogs+Cats map
Sakurais cat: vroom vroom make good food
Sakurai: if u dont eat luigi i put u in smash
Sakurais cat: deal
Fukura for Smash comfirmed.
Forget the cat piano I want to see that cat playing smash!
My cat really liked Mario Kart Live. He chased it around the house lol (Just search for scottish fold cat mario kart live if you want to see)
@RendellDraw Ribbon Road in MK8 sort of did that, at least with the toy look. Could use some cats.
The real inspiration of the cat photos in the jump rope game!
I'd be like 'for Fukura's sake!'
@Ooyah Or you are treating them wrong lol
@Antraxx777 How did I forget this? 😂
Enjoyed a lot out of Bloodstained
I am amazed that someone made a webpage dedicated to Sakurai's cat. The cat is very cute!
I swear this is the best idea ever made
