Minecraft isn’t really known for its racing mechanics, but one fan rectifies that by incorporating Mario Kart, which includes vehicles and a race track.
From newcomers to the industry to veteran gamers who have grown up with technology, it seems like Minecraft is a game that has universal appeal. Released in 2009, it’s surprising that it’s still going strong, but as one of the most played video games of that year, it’s clear that Mojang’s open-world sandbox IP is still pulling players in despite his age. Part of that is down to the fans themselves, who always come up with interesting projects and also add their own flavor.
More on the Minecraft subreddit, user Cirelectric introduced something to the game that isn’t featured often, at least not officially. That is to say, they brought elements of Mario Kart, specifically the vehicles themselves, in a new resource pack they just completed. If that wasn’t enough, a short video on the wire shows the karts actually working and they even managed to build a circuit. The vehicles are fairly faithful to their original Nintendo designs, and the user has made them available for download.
Although it’s not known as a racing game, it’s interesting to see someone incorporate it into Minecraftand if it’s gonna be a runner, Mario Kart looks like it would be the perfect fit. After all, the series is a long-standing tradition in gaming, with the first installment released way back in 1992 for the SNES. It still proves popular some three decades later, with Mario Kart 8 being the best-selling racing game of all time. Cirelectric’s Resource Pack shows how beloved Nintendo’s classic franchise is, but also demonstrates the continued possibilities of Minecraft.
Even without fan additions, the sandbox title would likely still be so beloved. That said, there are plenty of texture packs and mods for Minecraft that inject a lot more longevity into the already chunky game. Hopefully Nintendo won’t have any problems with Cirelectric Mario Kart pack, because the user says it’s completely free, so they don’t enjoy it.
With Minecraft Legends now officially announced, which is an RTS spin-off of the game, Mojang Studios looks set to take things to new heights. There have already been tastes of Minecraft Dungeonsbut Legends is just another way of showing that the original game has a lot more to offer, despite it already being one of the biggest IPs in gaming history.
Minecraft is now available for Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
