It is a little-known international law that every cartoon character must eventually star in a kart racer. Hello Kitty doesn’t want any trouble with the man, so now she and her very cute and very Japanese friends tear hell-bent for leather around very cute tracks in a very cute new game for iOS and Android.
Hello Kitty Kruisers from Bergsala Lightweight, Sanrio, and Scarab Entertainment sees Hello Kitty and her Sanrio friends racing on land, in the air, and on the water.
The game will feature a total of 10 characters, 16 tracks, and 20 adventure modes including a cupcake hunt, rainbow gates challenge, apple run, and time trial. There are also Hello Kitty takes on standard karting weapons, like cream pies for missiles and traffic cones to slow opponents down.
The game is available on the App Store or Google Play for $1.99, which gets you Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Badtz Maru, and Cinnamoroll, two of the game’s four racing tours, each featuring four tracks, and a selection of adventure races. Other characters, two more racing tours, and additional adventure races are available as in-app purchases.
