I loved Mario Kart back in the day, but boy could the game piss me off. Getting nailed with a turtle shell and off the track waiting for a tow that seemed to take forever was a ticket to throw-the-controller-land. Fans of Mario Kart and Star Wars will want to check out this fun video by Dark Pixel.
It mixes Mario Kart gameplay and tracks with Star Wars spaceships and locations. The result is a very cool mashup that has Mario and crew racing in X-Wings and TIE fighters. They pick up power-ups like turtle shells, boosts, and others that they can fling about.
The video looks very nice and I can’t help but expect this to draw the ire of Disney or Nintendo legal. Watch the video while you can, I expect a cease and desist to pull the video down at any moment. Then, expect them to come out with a game you can pay them money for sometime in 2018.
