Hearts flash across your eyes as you speed into the lead position, leaving your jolly, smug, and shocked competitors in the dust. That’s not just a flowery turn of phrase. It’s emoji Kart Racer, the first official emoji video game from the emoji Company and hit casual game maker Joindots GmbH, and it’s available on PS4 and PS5 now.
The emoji Kart Racer game will also launch on Xbox consoles and Nintendo Switch in February 2023.
Players can put on a happy face – or their triumph or sweary faces – and get behind the wheel to race through four cups and 16 fiendishly tricky speedways. Pull off sick turns in a world made of cake, dodge giant snowmen while rocketing through the snow, and soar through the air on a road made of clouds. If skills alone aren’t enough to put victory into the grasp of players, they can unleash a bevy of obstacles and hazards on their opponents to get the upper hand.
Players can choose their driver from a broad range of officially licensed emoji icons, or use the detailed generator to create their own unique character from over 20,000 combinations. If in the mood for some friendly competition, a player and up to three other friends can join in the fun in splitscreen multiplayer.
