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.
