Two new DreamWorks Animation-inspired video games have been announced: DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing and DreamWorks Trolls Remix Rescue.
DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing includes 20 playable DreamWorks Animation characters, including Shrek, Po, Tigress, Boss Baby, Puss in Boots, Hiccup, Astrid and more. Each has their own unique kart to race, alongside customisation options.
It’s been 12 years since DreamWorks Super Star Kartz came out in 2011 on Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS. It was the last DreamWorks Animation game to be published by Activision.
Expect familiar locations inspired by DreamWorks Animation films, including The Kingdom of Far Far Away from Shrek, Bergen town from Trolls, Spirit Realm from Kung Fu Panda, Baby Corp from The Boss Baby, and New York City Zoo from Madagascar.
Poppy, Branch, Barb, Cooper, and others from Trolls host each race and help out with power-ups. There’s eight-player online and four-player local split-screen. Master Oogway from Kung Fu Panda and Wolf from Puss In Boots: The Last Wish are two exclusive characters in the Digital Deluxe Edition.
Speaking of Trolls, adventure game DreamWorks Trolls Remix Rescue lets you play as the characters from the franchise (Poppy, Branch, Guy Diamond etc) as well as create, customise, and play as a Troll of your own.
Both games are due out on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One and PC via Steam later in 2023, and are published by GameMill Entertainment. DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing is developed by Bamtang Games. DreamWorks Trolls Remix Rescue is developed by Petit Fabrik, the studio behind 3D platformer Kukoos: Lost Pets.
