About this deal

Even on Xbox Series X|S the graphics are a little rough. We recently came from a review of Disney Speedstorm, and the difference is night and day. That game’s overblown visual flourishes and dynamism is completely absent here, and DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing ends up looking a little drab and basic as a result. Randall Duk Kim, the voice of Grand Master Oogway in the Kung Fu Panda films, is the only original voice actor to reprise his role for the game. The third time Eric Bauza voiced Puss in Boots in a major production following The Adventures of Puss in Boots, and The Trident.

DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing will be heading to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, and PC via Steam at some point in 2023. As for when in 2023 it’ll see the light of day remains a mystery, though it’s fair to say that it’ll be targeting a Q4 launch, perhaps to coincide with the pre-holiday season rush, if anything. The game features full voice acting, complete with banter between the characters. Many lines have the characters call each other out by name, or through name calling. AWESOME KARTS: Each kart draws its distinct design from the unique personality of its DreamWorks character-driver! Put your very own twist on the kart with hundreds of parts and accessory combinations to level up! The so-called DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing isn’t due out for a few months yet, but that hasn’t stopped DreamWorks and team from posting a trailer or two to give us a deeper insight into what’s to come. Kung Fu Panda in a tiny candy-popping kart? Sure, why not? But that’s not all it’ll bring, as made clear by the elevator pitch the studio posted earlier this week. Interested? If so, then here’s everything you will need to know before signing the waiver and getting behind the wheel. Take it away, Puss. What Is DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing? Two additional characters will be available as part of DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing’s Deluxe Edition: Master Oogway from Kung Fu Panda and Wolf from Puss in Boots: The Last Wish . Characters from the Troll movies will host each race, and players will be able to collect Trolls to race alongside them for added support. The game will also feature classic locations from the movies these characters hail from, such as the Kingdom of Far Far Away from the Shrek sequels, Bergen Town from Trolls, the Spirit Realm from Kung Fu Panda, Baby Corp from The Boss Baby, and New York City Zoo from Madagascar.Each character boasts their own uniquely styled kart to race,”‘the description continues. “Players can put their own twist on each ride with hundreds of customizable parts and accessory combinations.” Despite being revealed as Death in Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, he is still referred to as "Wolf" in the game. All-Star Racing Roster: Hit the kartway with 20 fan-favorite DreamWorks Animation characters, including Shrek, Po, Tigress, Boss Baby, Puss in Boots, Hiccup, Astrid and many more! Awesome Karts – Each character boasts their own uniquely styled kart to race. Players can put their own twist on each ride with hundreds of customisable parts and accessory combinations. The second overall appearance of Shrek and Donkey in the 2020's (third for Shrek including his cameo in The Pentaverate).

Death and Grand Master Oogway have access to a selection of custom parts designed to represent the famous DreamWorks logo (the blue clouds as the chassis and the Moon Child on the tires).So with all that said, I'm gonna take this review with a grain of salt. The gameplay looks solid, although I did see some footage of the Switch version, and it unfortunately does look way worse graphically than on other platforms. This is honestly a very pretty looking game on PS and Xbox from what I've seen, but some of the levels like the Madagascar one and Shrek's swamp have lots of missing grass and tree leaves, and what is there looks like something from an N64 game. So I'm really conflicted on this one. I don't want an ugly version of the game, but I also don't really want it on another platform. I might just wait for a sale since I already have the MK8 DX DLC that just dropped, as well as Disney Speedstorm to keep me busy for now. There are references to his true identity however, which includes quotes from The Last Wish, his kart being a coffin, and a new line, "I'm here Farquaad!" DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing is exactly what it sounds like — a kart racing game featuring none other than a collected bunch of friendly faces and misfits stripped directly from some of the animation studio’s most celebrated works. To this end, players can expect to dive into a Mario Kart-type experience as heroes such as Shrek, Po, Alex the Lion, and even Boss Baby, for crying out loud. Sound like your typical run-of-the-mill karting game with a touch of DreamWorks’ signature paint? That’s because it is — and it’s doing nothing to tell us otherwise. Not that it’s a problem, mind you. It’s about time we received a spiritual successor to 2009’s Shrek Kart, to be fair. DreamWorks Animation all-stars Shrek, Puss in Boots, Boss Baby, Hiccup, and a whole bunch of Trolls are getting the Mario Kart treatment for a new game: DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing. The crossover kart racer will span two decades of the DreamWorks cinematic catalog, borrowing characters from the Shrek and How to Train Your Dragon films, as well as Megamind and The Bad Guys. Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands) may take longer to reach you.

Whilst we will do everything we can to meet the delivery times above, there may be factors outside of our control and we cannot guarantee delivery within this time frame. This isn’t DreamWorks’ first foray into kart racing by a long shot. DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing stands on the shoulders of 2006’s Shrek Smash n’ Crash Racing, 2009’s Madagascar Kartz, and 2011’s DreamWorks Super Star Kartz, all of which featured a raceable Shrek. The courses are neatly undulating and make great use of the films they’re based on. Mongo stands astride the city of Far Far Away from Shrek, as you dodge the King and Queen’s stretch limo-carriage. The Cave of Lost Souls from Puss in Boots is stitched together with portals, taking you into a Ghost Train-like experience with Death staring at you from its walls.

At the time of writing, GameMill Entertainment hasn’t released any footage to showcase DreamWorks All-Star Kart Racing in all its glory. Needless to say that the likelihood of it getting a launch trailer at some point in the next several weeks seems pretty high. Until then, all we’ve got are the screenshots. Release Date, Platforms & Editions Meanwhile, there were several licensed Shrek video games released during the lovable (if crude) green ogre’s theatrical heyday. While most of these games were standard movie tie-in fare that was soon forgotten, there are still plenty of gamers with fond memories of playing the team-oriented Shrek 2 game or 2005’s Super Smash Bros. clone Shrek SuperSlam. In the years since Shrek’s last cinematic outing, gamers have kept his memory alive through memes and mods that inserted him into titles like Resident Evil 3 and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. To play this game on PS5, your system may need to be updated to the latest system software. Although this game is playable on PS5, some features available on PS4 may be absent. See PlayStation.com/bc for more details. ALL-STAR CAST OF DREAMWORKS CHARACTERS: Who will you choose? With favorites such as Shrek, Po, Tigress, Boss Baby, Puss in Boots, Hiccup, and Astrid, it’ll be hard to choose just one.
