Nintendo All-Stars Racing is a kart racing game developed Hybrid Co. and GemGames Co.. It will release in late 2012 and will be for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.


The gameplay is a mascot kart racer similar to the Mario Kart and Sonic and SEGA series. Racers try to get first place on a variety of tracks with obstacles and items to help or hinder. Some tracks will have unique aspects to their series such as F-Zeroboosters, where the boost can be activated as a item. In the overworld, however, it is much more like Diddy Kong Racing. Characters will work together to save N-Isle from the evil Dark Mist.
