Revving It Up with Hello Kitty Kruisers on Nintendo Switch

Hello Kitty has revved up and zoomed her way into our living room in the form of Hello Kitty Kruisers on the Nintendo Switch which is published by Rising Star Games.

The game was released digitally via Nintendo eShop yesterday (26th April) priced at £24.99 and is now available from physical retailers across Europe and beyond from today (27th April) for £29.99. Hello Kitty fans who purchase the UK English-language physical version of Hello Kitty Kruisers are in for an added treat with one of six adorable official Sanrio iron-on badges inside.

Ready to Race with Hello Kitty Kruisers

My first impression of this games is how fantastically fun and colourful it is with cute characters racing about in their imaginative world. The kids couldn't wait to get playing, first customising their characters and choosing their vehicles.

There are 10 characters in total in the game with 6 available to choose from immediately and 4 waiting to be unlocked. There are four Tours, with each Tour having 4 courses allowing you to race on land, over water and even through the air. You can race in single-player or with up to three friends, and unlock new outfits and vehicles for your favourite characters. You can even challenge your racing skills in the super-exciting Adventure mode.

Our Verdict

My 8-year-old son and his friend were first to play, choosing Keroppi and Badtz-Maru as their characters and heading straight for Cosmic Way Fly-By where they raced through a rainbow coloured track in their brightly coloured planes. 

We are really enjoying playing Hello Kitty Kruisers, the kids got the hang of the game really quickly and were off the marks racing about the tracks pretty much straight away. They all said that the game reminds them of Mario Kart with items such as cupcakes being flung at them, and others such as traffic cones being dropped along the way, in addition to speed boosts. Zoey was super excited that she could play as Hello Kitty, and the boys were equally pleased with the other Sanrio character options. 

This is definitely a fun-for-all-the-family type game, the controls are easy to get the hang of (even for me), the varied courses over land, sea and air keep it engaging and interesting and we love the challenge of trying to unlock new outfits and vehicles. Hello Kitty Kruisers gets a big thumbs up from us.
