GameMill Entertainment is known for its licensed games, like 2021’s Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl and the recently announced Cobra Kai 2: Dojos Rising. And according to a press release that followed a recent premature retail listing, the company is continuing to publish Nickelodeon games with the upcoming Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway.
The listing was first found on places like Reddit, as the kart racer popped up on Best Buy’s website with an October 7, 2022 release date. Listings showed up for Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One versions, all of which were $49.99.
However, Gematsu followed up with a press release from GameMill corroborating its existence, even though the publisher has yet to formally tweet about it or mention in any sort of capacity. The press release does track with the listing and confirms that it is launching on PC, too. However, while the Best Buy store page says the game is launching on October 7, the press release just says “fall.” Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix was also announced in June 2020 and released in October 2020, showing that an October release after a summer announcement is possible. The first game was also announced in July 2018 and came out that same September.
Slime Speedway will include over 40 characters, voice acting, new terrain, transformable karts (to navigate said new terrain), more customization, 90 crew members, 36 tracks, and split-screen and online multiplayer. Calling out voice acting may sound strange, but Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl shipped with silent characters before a big patch added vocals. The press release also said the game has been “rebuilt and reimagined from the ground up” and will have tracks inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and more.
GameMill hasn’t released any screen shots or trailers for the game, which, in addition to its lack of a formal announcement tweet, is strange. However, it seems like those assets (and a more robust reveal) are probably coming sooner rather than later.
