Shrek, Po, Hiccup, and More Will Speed Onto Switch In DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing

DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing, a new Switch racer from GameMill Entertainment, will take the residents of Far Far Away, the Isle of Berk, Troll Village, and Kung Fu Panda’s world to the track.

20 characters from Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, and more race around circuits inspired by these worlds. Each character has their own car and can use items to gain an advantage over opponents (sound familiar?).

Here, magical switches can be hit to unlock shortcuts, and there appear to be a variety of game modes for competitive racing, split-screen co-op, and sightseeing. This one doesn’t have a trailer yet, but the following information and screenshots can give you a taste.
