Wacky Races Preview

The Hanna-Barbera cartoon is coming home courtesy of Infogrames. Catch up with Dick Dastardly, Penelope Pitstop, and the rest of the Wacky Races gang.

Mario's done it. South Park's done it. Crash Bandicoot's done it. So it makes sense that Infogrames is taking characters from the popular Wacky Races cartoon and stuffing them into go-karts. Wacky Races, being developed for the Dreamcast, PlayStation, and Game Boy Color consoles should race into stores sometime this summer.

If you're a fan of the Wacky Races cartoon, you'll be happy to hear that all your favorite characters from the show will be in the game. Penelope Pitstop, Dick Dastardly, and even Muttley make an appearance on the racetrack, and there's sure to be plenty more selectable and even hidden characters.

The game will feature at least five game modes - Arcade, Championship, TimeTrial, Endurance, and Versus. The Versus mode shows promise as an excellent multiplayer experience, as you battle it out with spiffy gadgets and funny items, a la Super Mario Kart.

The PlayStation version is being developed by Appaloosa and should hit shelves this summer. We'll have more information for you as soon as we get it, but in the meantime check out these screenshots of the game in action.
