Greetings Source Gaming fans, and welcome to another Dream Roster article. If you missed out on our previous entries, be sure to check out the articles looking at Nintendo Kart, as well as MvC4, Kellogg’s vs. Capcom, Fire Emblem Warriors and Konami-Smash.
Nintendo has never produced a cross-company themed Kart racing game before, but they have progressively taken the Mario Kart franchise away from being entirely Mario-centric. The Mario Kart 8 DLC contained characters and stages based on other Nintendo IPs such as The Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Excite Bike and F–Zero. Mario and co’ have also met Namco characters such as Pac-Man, Mametchi and Don-chan on the track in the Mario Kart Arcade GP games.
Mario and Mickey are two of the biggest pop culture icons of all time, and while they have never met under any official circumstances yet, Disney are enthusiastic about the idea of it happening sooner rather than later. So what better setting than a Kart racing game for these characters to finally shake hands? After all, they both have a history of appearing in racing games. Mickey’s first racing appearance was in Rare Ltd’s underrated Nintendo 64 game: Mickey’s Speedway USA. He has also gone on to star in Mickey’s Racing Adventure for the Game Boy Colour. Other notable Disney racing games include Disney Infinity 3.0, and Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour.
As you’ve probably guessed by now, this Dream Roster article will be focusing on Disney X Mario Kart.
