Nintendo 3DS Gets a New Kart Racer Based on Sanrio Franchise
It doesn’t matter if she’s a cat or an English girl, Hello Kitty is still our favorite Sanrio character, and it turns out she’s going to be part of a new kart racing game for the Nintendo 3DS, titled Hello Kitty & Sanrio Friends 3D Racing. Details are still sparse at the moment, but the existence of the project was made known after listings for the game were spotted at Gamefly.com and the ESRB website.
The Gamefly listing puts Hello Kitty & Sanrio Friends 3D Racing’s release date at November 11 and Majesco as the publisher, while the ESRB site goes more in depth with the following description:
This is a racing game in which players drive Hello Kitty and her friends in karts, boats, and planes around whimsical race courses. Some races contain power-up items (e.g., speed bursts, traffic cones, pies) that are tossed at other racers, causing them to briefly spin out of control.
