Mario Kart + Star Wars = Star Kart (Video)

Have you ever wondered what could make Mario Kart even better? Some of the funnest times I’ve ever had playing video games was with the many versions of Mario Kart of course. I’ve had countless hours of fun with my friends racing each other and shooting green and red shells at them. I can’t really think of how this game could be any more fun, that is until I saw this video. Adding Star Wars to the mix makes pretty much every thing better and Mario Kart is no exception.

I was never a big fan of the pod racing scenes from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace but this is sooooo much better. It’s actually really hard to believe that this is a fan film. The animation is so great, along with the sound effects, and character sounds. All around this is just entertaining and really makes me wish that Nintendo and Star Wars would do a cross over game, or even add Star Wars vehicles as downloadable content in the next Mario Kart game.

Things really pick up when they make the jump to light speed and race on that planet Tatooine, the ice planet Hoth, then make their way up to the Death Star. The great thing is that this feels like it could be a real thing. You really get the sense of excitement and intensity as if you were actually playing the game.

So check out the Star Kart video below and as always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. Does this look like a version of Mario Kart that you would like to play and how likely do you think it is that we would ever a get a crossover like this?
