It looks like the last entry in the Nickelodeon kart racer franchise was disclosed via a list of retailers from Best Buy. The sequel to Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix will be called Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway and will launch later this year on October 7, 2022.

It’s weird, isn’t it? Video games never leak..! Laugh!

Anyway, the news accelerated when it was reported by a known gaming enthusiast Wario64 and has since been reported by multiple outlets (thanks to GoNintendo for this one!):

As for what Slime Speedway will look like, we don’t know for sure yet, but we do have reasonably complete info on the game via the listing. Here are some of the highlights:

  • The game will feature a cast of over 40 characters
  • You can transform your kart or bike into a watercraft to cross various terrains
  • “Millions” of vaunted customization options
  • 36 different featured tracks
  • 90 crew members
  • Multiplayer via local or online split-screen play

The first two Nickelodeon Kart Racer titles are available on Switch, and while we thought the first entry was a bit of a stretch, the sequel did a lot to improve on the initial attempt, earning a respectable 7/10 in our review. No one can guess how fair the third entry will be at this point.

Hopefully we get an official announcement on Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway sooner rather than later.

What do you think? Are you ready for more Nickelodeon racing action? Let us know in the comments!
