Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix will be arriving on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch this October. It will have 30 racers and 28 tracks.
The title doesn't have a release date yet other than this October, but it is coming, and it will have 30 playable characters. Here is the official statement below:
Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix is ready to help players indulge in all their ‘90s nostalgia as players race around the slime-covered tracks as famous Nickelodeon cartoon characters like Spongebob Squarepants, Chucky from Rugrats, Arnold from Hey Arnold, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and many more.
There will also be 70 companion characters, 28 tracks, 2 arenas, online support for 8 players, and local split-screen multiplayer support for 4 players. That's a lot packed into a game that's a sequel to a thoroughly mediocre kart racer. Although one of the biggest problems with the first game was the number of racers and tracks, which was 12 and 4 respectively. That definitely seems to be rectified now.
Kart racing is one of those genres where people don't really mind if a ton of games release for it. It's a relatively simple genre but there's a lot that can be done with it. While the first game was a disaster, people seem to be somewhat interested in this game, which is a lot more than what anyone could say about the first game. Will be it any good though? We'll see.
What do you think of this announcement? Do you have a favorite character that has been included in this kart racer? Are you interested in playing another one of these games? Let us know in the comments!
