It's a day for kart racers, it seems, with confirmation now that Horrid Henry's Krazy Karts arrives on the Switch eShop on 21st January; in the UK it'll be priced at £24.99. As the name makes clear it features characters and settings from the cartoon of the same name, so this one is primarily targeting young children.

There's no trailer at present, but we've included some screenshots and official details below. We're a little confused by the side-on perspective, but it'll no doubt make more sense once some video footage emerges.

Join Henry in the ultimate Kart Race and compete against friends, family or ride solo as you swerve past obstacles in your path and splodge your opponents to get ahead. Choose from a range of pranks from Henry’s Trunk of Tricks including Slime Squirt, Fizzy Foam, Gross Goo, Snot Bag and more, plus hilarious sound effects such as a mighty megaphone, fearsome fart, a T-Rex roar, fabulous fairy dust and marvellous music to pip your pals to the post and whizz your way to that winner’s podium!

In this hilariously horrid game, you can pick from one of six characters including Horrid Henry, Perfect Peter, Brainy Brian and Moody Margaret with a choice of 6 karts to race in which can be customised in the workshop with a spectacular fun selection of engines, wheels and colours. There are 10 tournament cups, 4 race locations, 40 levels and even an option to create your own illustrious level to share with friends... the entertainment is endless!

It may be worth exploring for parents of young children, certainly; let us know what you think, as always, in the comments.
