Nothing screams childhood quite like Mario Kart and Hot Wheels and today, the two worlds have collided to bring us a partnership that we’ve all been waiting for. Here’s what the companies said in the announcement:
The Hot Wheels replica line features 1:64th scale die-cast Mario Kart vehicles that can race, stunt and crash on a variety of Hot Wheels Mario Kart track sets that bring the gameplay to life. The die-cast karts are also compatible with existing Hot Wheels sets. At launch the Hot Wheels Mario Kart Replica Die-cast assortment will include Mario, Yoshi, Luigi and Bowser with many additional characters coming soon such as Princess Peach, Koopa Troopa and Toad.
Three game-inspired track sets will also be available, including:
- Hot Wheels Mario Kart Track Set Course-Inspired Assortments:
- Piranha Plant Slide Track Set
- Thwomp Ruins Track Set
- Hot Wheels Mario Kart Circuit Track Set
And we won’t have to wait long as they’re due to release this Summer.
