If only one Nickelodeon Kart Racers had been released, we’d say okay, one Mario Kart clone for the cartoon channel… but three?
The game will be published by GameMill Entertainment and developed by Bamtang Games. It’s a given that it’ll be a cross-gen title, and it’ll be on all consoles, so at least in that respect, there won’t be any omissions (and since the visuals aren’t always groundbreaking for these IPs aimed at kids, it’s no wonder they were able to make the game run on the Nintendo Switch).
The latest instalment of Nickelodeon Kart Racers has been rebuilt and remade from the ground up, according to a press release from GameMill Entertainment. More than forty iconic characters will be in the game with full voice-overs. They’ll drift, slide and boost around tracks inspired by legendary Nickelodeon shows (SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Ninja Turtles, Avatar: The Last Airbender, these three mentioned).
Our gokarts or bikes can be transformed into vehicles travelling on the water to take us to new areas (it doesn’t remind us of Mario Kart 8, oh no). A new level of customisation is also promised. You can repaint your vehicle, add new parts, and supposedly millions of combinations will result. Our team is not to be neglected either: we have ninety team members to choose from to provide specific abilities to suit our play style on the thirty-six tracks spiked with slime (which was a Nickelodeon staple back in the eighties). These can be played in split-screen local or online multiplayer.
As we’ve written, Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway will be a cross-gen game, so in addition to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC (Steam) triple, it will also be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. We don’t know when exactly, as the publisher says it will be released sometime in the autumn, and it won’t get much attention outside of fans.
