Default Konami's Mario-Kart Styled Racer; With Multiplayer


Video (German)

From what I could make out, it is a Konami-franchise-skinned Mario Kart. With Multiplayer.





Quote:
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has revved up a fun new iPhone/iPod touch game entitled Krazy Kart Racing, which is available from the Apple App Store in August. The game uses a 3D cartoon style, and aims to be the most extensive available kart racing game, offering a wealth of content for long-lasting play-fun.
Produced and overseen by Konami’s European Development Studio in Paris, Krazy Kart Racing brings ten classic Konami gaming heroes to the track, as they battle it out across 16 themed circuits. Using the traditional third-person view, players guide their chosen character around the laps, using whatever they can to steal an advantage over their CPU or multi-player rivals. Nitro boosts can give a welcome burst of speed, while a wide range of extras that can be picked up during the race and can be used to slow down opposing karts
Control and speed are everything in Krazy Kart Racing, and the dynamically balanced camera keeps track of the player and those around them as they compete to be first past the line. The game features five single-player modes, and also allows friends to compete against each other in linked multi-player races and competitions.
“We have deliberately kept this game under wraps for a while to surprise the audience at the most important European game show,” commented Florian Stronk, Head of the Network Business Development Department for Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH.“It’s another fun-focused title, which combines Konami’s rich IPs and use of the best developer talent in Europe, including our external partner Polarbit. We look forward to people getting to grips with it, either here at gamescom in Cologne or wherever they choose on their personal device.”
2009 Konami Digital Entertainment. Developed by Polarbit AB. Published by Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. KONAMI is a registered trademark of KONAMI CORPORATION.

Looks like a konami skinned Crash Kart with multi-player instead. I would love to see a game that is like mario cart but this doesnt look like it.

This game is developed by polarbit for Konami and I think they had something to do with Crash Nitro Cart too. So the engine is already there they just maybe tweaked and cleaned up the graphics something they should have done with Nitro Cart.

Well I have high-hopes for this!
I have been dying for a good Mario Kart clone on my iPod. I surely hope it isnt just a reskined Crash because that game had a lot of issues with me. Can't wait to see some videos of gameplay.
