It made so much sense that we still wonder why it didn’t happen before. But the truth is that Paw Patrol’s kart racing game will finally be released on September 30 across all platforms. We participated in a few races on Gamescom (as Rubble, but of course), and also spoke to Loz Doyle, Outright Games’ production manager, to learn more about the game.
You can use split-screen controls, items, jumps and boosts, as well as customisation and traps. As we approached the finish line, we were naturally overtaken.
“We made a few Paw Patrol games now, they’re very, very popular, it’s a massive brand for kids. And we thought, well, look, in the TV show they’re always in their vehicles. They’re always going on rescue missions, they’re always driving around. So, there’s always something having to do with the vehicles and that would make for a perfect racing game. So that was the reason we went for it. We’ve got a studio, 3DClouds, they are really good at making this kind of racing games, they’re really enthusiastic”.

Additional elements of racing
We saw Mayor HumdingerIt’s okay to not be as organized and disciplined as you would like. ChickalettaWe wanted to find out what other activities children would enjoy, besides racing.
“It’s fun just racing around the track, but it’s more fun when there are more things to do. And you can pick up different power-ups that are on the track, and then you can use those to take out your
enemies, rivals, and you can also can pick up pup treats, and once you’ve get your own collection of pup treats that’s when you can activate your pup skills. For example, Marshall has a water balloon”.
Story Mode, unlockable pups
We saw the usual suspects, but the last couple was greyed out… Don’t expect! LibertyUnfortunately, the article’s focus is on TV series, not movies.

“We wanted to make sure that the kids could play as their favourite character straight away so all the main characters are there from the beginning, and then as you play through the adventure that’s when you start to unlock a few of the extra karts really fast. But then, on top of that, you have customisation options for your characters. You can wear different hats, you can get different boost trails, different skins for the vehicles. And that’s what you unlock as go through the story. It’s a fun way to enhance your vehicle”.
Paw Patrol: Grand Prix functions in the same manner as Mario Kart on Switch. This is a great feature, but it’s not for people who are new to video gaming.
“The autodrive… If you are really young… Cause Paw Patrol is appealing to two and three years old as well, and maybe they’ve never played before but they can still have a game they can put on autodrive and they’ll still have a great time. You can let the game control the vehicle and they can just use the power-ups. It’s really nice. And then you can have the parents playing without the assist on and it gives that nice little balance. Would they let the children win, who knows?”
But we won’t. We won’t. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Team Sonic RacingOr Crash Team RacingIt is clearer than the previous and less confusing. Chocobo GPIt could be a hit with both parents and children due to its aids and target audience.
