Activision Superstar Kartz is a crossover racing game published by Activision and developed by Vicarious Visions, and Beenox releasing on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, as well as PC (through Steam). The game has a similar name to DreamWorks Superstar Kartz, which was Activision's last video games based on the intellectual properties of DreamWorks Animation SKG.



The game uses gameplay elements from Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing, Crash Team Racing, and Skylanders Superchargers. Players race in vehicles under the categories of Land, Sea, and Sky. Which vehicle is used depends on the course. The default vehicles, which can all be used by all characters, have similar designs, but these vehicles have a size, color, and symbol that vary by character. Other vehicles, as well as characters and courses, can be unlocked as players progress, but the unlockable vehicles can only be used by a specific character. Local and Online Multiplayer modes are also included.


Characters and courses represent many Activision games and franchises including Call of Duty, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon/Skylanders, Pitfall!, and even Destiny, among others. Guest characters are also present; some of which come from movies and television shows Activision owned a license to make video games based on.

The Nintendo Switch version includes an exclusive local wireless Multiplayer mode.
