Pick your own fantasy kart roster!

Post by The Laird » Sun Mar 11, 2018 11:02 am

The other day I was looking at a Mario Kart hack that changed all the characters to people from popular cartoon and it got me thinking about how I wished that Atari Karts on the Jaguar had featured more well-known Atari characters than just Bentley Bear from Crystal Castles, real missed opportunity in my opinion.

So if you could do your dream Mario Kart style game with 8 characters of your choice who would they be?

Themed ones are of course better, but anything goes really!

I wouldn’t mind a Nintendo all-stars karting game. Shake-up the Mario Kart formula somewhat. Mario Kart All-Stars or something.

I won’t make a list but you can probably guess who might be involved.

I wonder if a Mario x Sonic kart game would ever be feasible, I mean they’ve done Olympics games before

I don’t think Sonic in Mario Kart is an impossibility. I wouldn’t at all be surprised to see him appear as DLC in a future MK title.
