The curious kart racer collection

GamesAsylum: "Mario Kart has a lot of answer for, and we aren’t talking about how Toad manages to reach the pedals. Nope – we’re talking about how Mario Kart’s immense popularity has spawned numerous soulless clones over the years.

Many of these lifeless imitators were released not during the 16-bit heyday but rather the turn of the millennium. Arguably, this can be attributed not just the success of system-seller Mario Kart 64 but also the PSone’s Crash Team Racing. The PSone was also starting to appear to a far younger age group at the time – a perfect target for licensed trash.

With Mario Kart 8 just weeks away, we’ve rounded-up an assortment of kart racers that have faded into obscurity." (El Chavo Kart, Retro)
