It looks like the latest entry to the Nickelodeon Kart Racer franchise has been leaked via a retailer listing from Best Buy. The sequel to Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix will be called Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway and will launch later this year on October 7th, 2022.
That’s weird, right? videogames never leak..! Guffaw!
Anyway, the news gathered speed when it was reported by known game enthusiasts wario64 and has since been reported by multiple outlets (thanks to GoNintendo for this one!):
As for what Slime Speedway will look like, we don’t quite know yet, but we do have reasonably extensive information on the game via the listing. Here are a few of the highlights:
- The game will include a cast of over 40 characters
- You can transform your kart or bike into watercrafts to traverse various terrain
- “Millions” of customization options boasted
- 36 different tracks featured
- 90 Crew Members
- Multiplayer via split-screen local or online play
The first two Nickelodeon Kart Racer titles are available on Switch, and while we thought the first entry was kinda pants, the sequel did a heck of a lot to improve on the initial attempt, getting a respectable 7/10 in our review. How the third entry will fair is anyone’s guess at this stage.
Hopefully we’ll get an official announcement on Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway sooner rather than later.
