Gameplay[edit]

Nickelodeon Kart Racers features a selection of 12 playable characters from four different Nicktoons. 24 race tracks from different locations from the shows are included in the game.[3]

It also has a co-op mode, where the player can "pull off devastating fused attacks, and local free-for-all multiplayer." The karts can be customized in the shop and power-ups can be picked up from the tracks.

Players can choose from twelve playable racers drawn from four Nickelodeon animated series.

The game received generally negative reviews from critics, with Metacritic giving the PS4 version a 42/100,[7] the Nintendo Switch version a 39/100[8] and the Xbox One version with a 49/100.[9] Nintendo Life gave the game 3/10 stars, criticizing it for the roster size which only consists of two to four characters from the four different cartoons while lacking other characters from the other popular Nickelodeon cartoons of the likes of The Fairly OddParents, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Invader Zim and Avatar: The Last Airbender.[10]
