Everyone has their own favorite video game, and now we know what Scarlett Johansson's is.

Speaking to IGN, Johannson said Nintendo's iconic racing game Mario Kart is her favorite, though she didn't say which one. Her favorite character is Toad. Why? "He's so cute," Johannson said.

Also in the interview, Johannson reveals that "New York State of Mind" is her go-to song for karaoke. "I slay every time," she said. Johannson was also asked if Black Widow from The Avengers or Major from Ghost in the Shell would win in a fight. "It's like Sophie's choice...I just can't [choose]," she said.

Johannson plays Major in the long-awaited Ghost in the Shell. Her character is a cyborg who leads a futuristic anti-terrorist taskforce known as Section 9. The 2017 movie's first trailer was released on Sunday and can be seen in the embed above.

Last year, it was reported that Johansson could star in a movie about online gaming harassment. She would play game developer Zoe Quinn, who faced death threats and other forms of harassment after a blog post written by her ex-boyfriend circulated around the Internet.
