Super Toy Cars is a new karting game announced for Wii U

Super Toy Cars is a new game in development that’s coming to the Wii U. Eclipse Games have announced they’re working on the title, which they’re describing as a mix between Mario Kart and micro machines. The game will feature 16 cars, 12 tracks, and a career mode for players with 48 events.

A local multiplayer mode is available in the PC version of the game, with up to 8 players able to face off against one another. Currently there’s no hint at whether this mode will make it into the Wii U version of the game, though. The game is in early access on Steam right now for $6.99, with no release date for the Wii U set. Check out the trailer above to see some of the gameplay in action.

Perhaps the biggest feature of the game is the fact that it will have a track editor when it launches, allowing players to build their own tracks and share them with other players.

  • 16BITDAVE

    I’ll buy it just because I love kart games

    • Skelterz

      You’ll regret it because you most likely enjoy ‘Good’ Kart games.

    Reminds me of Micro Machines.

  • http://valid.at val berger

    If I were like 27years younger and had my fathers creditcard, I’d buy it, because toycars and colors and racing and stuff. Nowadays I guess I need at least a playable Toad to be convinced. But I always appreciate Tech Demos of the Unity Engine. This one’s not the best of all, but not bad either.

  • Skelterz

    The game after watching it for 20 odd seconds looks shit everything about it the presentation the music to accompany the demo everything was poorly constructed,
    I worry when developers release stuff like this so close to AAA releases of the same genre it feels like a cash grab and poor attempt at one.

    • Einar

      It’s like when a popular mobile game is released, there’s sure to be 50 poorly made clones coming up the next week.

      • Skelterz

        literally the same i mean flappy bird came about and you had all sorts of games followed all shit including the game they copied

  • jjbredesen

    …..Wannabe Mario Kart, bad graphics, music etc. this does not look very good, and don’t expect it to sell well when MK8 is its competition. Very poor attempt at trying to make a breakthrough. Not going to buy.

    Where are the big AAA games?? we have only had small games like this for the past 2 months…

    • Skelterz

      Erm like serious stepping on my toes JJ scroll down braa XD

      • jjbredesen

        Sorry, did not see it :/ was under gamesplaywill gif when i wrote the comment.

        • Skelterz

          Dude i don’t care lol hahah no no wait one sec Ahem
          ” Well im just raise awareness you know”

          • jjbredesen

            Ok, but yeah i agree with you it looks really bad :/

          • Skelterz

            Yeah man it look so shit

    • http://Nintendo.com Nintendo of America

      Please understand that this is the new look of Mario Kart 8. It has been redesigned so that it is more in touch with the quality standards of today’s major games. Such as Call of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14 by our fantastic partners Activision and EA.

      • Einar

        I don’t know if you’re trying to be funny or not, but your comments, especially this one, are just sad..

        • linkzero65

          actually,i find these comments rather funny and entertaining than sad ones.

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        Did… Did you just reply to yourself? XD

        • http://Nintendo.com Nintendo of America

          Please understand that i did.

    • http://store.steampowered.com/ Gabe Newell

      Yeah it deserves a price slash!

      • linkzero65

        Hey gabe could you make Half life 3 exclusively on wii u? that would be great!

    • greengecko007

      It looks like a case of getting what you paid for. At almost a tenth of what Mario Kart 8 will cost, it’s a poor man’s kart racer.

      Still, I don’t think it looks terrible. That graphics aren’t fantastic, but again, what do you expect from a game priced at $6.99?

      • jjbredesen

        I expect that games that are released from any dev is a good one.

        Before devs tried to make a game as good as they could, not as much about the money as it is now. This is a lazy job no matter how you twist it.

        Mobile devs and devs that just make games for the money etc. are ruining the game industry, i have nothing against small games etc, but when it starts affecting big games it becomes a problem, just look at COD and BF. The first cod games where fantastic and did new stuff, but after Modern Warfare 2, it just became the same old thing just for the money.

        Then look at Battlefield, the games where good and the Bad Company games where great and BF 3 was not bad at all pretty good game once the server issues got fixed, but BF4 is the result of greedy publishers.

        Same goes for FIFA, and i am really afraid that it will happen to Assassins creed to, Ubisoft is making it a yearly franchise and now there are coming 2 games in 1 year! Lets hope that money does not ruin it. Not saying it will, but you know what i mean.

        The list continues, but my point is games that are not great should not be encouraged regardless of price etc.

        Have nothing against time wasters, but when everyone makes them it becomes boring.

        And the graphics could be made a lot better, the game simply looks like a lazy job to make money.

        • greengecko007

          “And the graphics could be made a lot better, the game simply looks like a lazy job to make money.”

          Sorry, I just don’t agree with this. It’s an indie game, so you can’t expect it too look as good as Mario Kart 8 graphically. I understand that the lack of AAA 3rd party support on the Wii U is frustrating, but judging an indie game the same way you’d judge a AAA is silly.

          Again, this is a $6.99 game, it’s almost a tenth the price of what Mario Kart 8 will be. I’m not saying that this looks amazing, or that I plan on getting it, but for kart racing fans, and people that want a track editor to mess around with, it hardly looks horrible.

          Unless we’re going to call every indie game the Wii U gets from now on shit for not being a AAA high budget, $60 priced game, I see no reason to call this shit for that same reason.

          • jjbredesen

            Well that was not my point i am not saying that every non AAA game is shit, i buy indie games a lot and appreciate them, but this one just looks lazy. I know what you are saying, but i simply don’t think it looks good, and yes devs can make it look better, Unity games can look better than this, just give me the game in Unity and il make it look better, you may say that is a stupid statement, but its true.

            But i get your point its just a small indie game for $6.99, but it could still be made better.

            And no i do not support pricing games 60 etc, just think THIS game looks like a lazy job, but i have not played it so i can’t judge.

          • greengecko007

            It’s perfectly fine with me if you don’t like the game. I’m not saying that I like it either. I’m mostly talking about your comment that just says, “Yup, looks like shit”.

            I don’t like The Wonderful 101 at all because I hate the graphics, but I don’t call it shit.

            I’m fine with agreeing to disagree. Everyone has their opinions.

          • jjbredesen

            Agreed :)

    • Officer Raichu

      um if you look in the comments they said they upgraded the graphics and this trailer was made months ago :P

      • jjbredesen

        Still does not look good :P

        • Officer Raichu

          well it is an indie not a multi million or billion dollar first or 3rd party maker

  • gamesplayswill

    Oh dear lord

    • Capt. Smoker

      What did I do to deserve to see that?….. `….`

  • Gameonfool

    Pathetic Nintendo shovlewarewiiu

    • Skelterz

      If we take away M E O N and add a Y to your game what are we left with.

      • Gameonfool

        We’d be left with what you are

        • Skelterz

          The wound created is so large i’m going to need a plaster the size of a sandal.

          • Gameonfool

            Same as, your so offensive

          • Skelterz

            Am I, The counselling isn’t working i’m going to get my stress ball.

          • Gameonfool

            Just play a dudebro game, that’ll get some stress out

          • jjbredesen

            Please keep the arguing to a minimum, clean comments thank you :)

          • Skelterz

            Yeah I’m going to put COD Ghost’s in

          • linkzero65

            you clearly need this new product :p

          • Skelterz

            HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH

  • Ducked

    Nintendo fanboy: OMG this game looks amazing, can’t wait to buy it! It sure is a great day to own a Wii U!

    Reality: This game sucks.

    • jjbredesen

      Yup, looks like shit.

      • Ducked

        I know, I mean these are the kind of games we played on PC like fourteen years ago.

        • jjbredesen

          Yeah it is a lazy game made with Unity from a new dev, so i think the dev just thought they could be lazy make a game for Nintendo and make a breakthrough with a medicore product that does not even look close to as good as it could, and just generally looks like a lazy job.

          • Gameonfool

            Allot of devs seem to think they can be lazy on Nintendo consoles. What are they thinking putting out these games on a Nintendo who happen to make some of the best games in the world

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah its really sad, but a lot of indie games are really good, its just that there is to much now, think the indie trend is dying down a bit now.

          • Ducked

            Well their laziness will be eating money, I don’t think anyone is dumb enough to buy this, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

          • jjbredesen

            Perhaps 50K? Don’t think gamers have become that dumb…, but then again they did buy Battlefield 4 :/

          • Wren Justin Umlauf

            Ok, Battlefield 3 was an amazing game and DICE is an amazing developer, unfortunately EA forced a release of a game not ready to released to the public. I dont think it’s fair to call people dumb because they bought a sequel to a game many people loved. And no I didn’t buy the game either

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah Battlefield 3 was a great game, but you should still wait for reviews etc. before buying and the direction Battlefield is going is to close to COD, its trying to take the COD audience…

            Bad company was great, but thee is to much lag etc. The multiplayer is still broken and yes i have played both the PS3 and PS4 version for about 5-6 hours each, can’t comment on the story, but have heard it was pretty decent, but nothing special.

            BF3 was better, and my point was that people will buy a game just because of the name…the gaming industry may have never been stronger, but the quality of games on all systems the last years have not felt that good to be honest.

            DICE is a good dev and i have nothing against them, but the way publishers are ruining games makes me really angry.

          • Wren Justin Umlauf

            Agreed. And thats the reason I didn’t buy BF4. Mostly because I wasnt going to buy a gimped version on my 360 for full price. I dont have a good enough PC. And I thought the game resembled BF3 too closely. I mean all the menus and everything look almost identical with the blue and orange theme.
            I hate the fact that Nintendo takes so long to make games, but at least we don’t get broken releases =/

            I wish I owned a good one

      • Marko Kuku

        are you serious jjbredesen? i Think the ingame footage looks fun!

        • jjbredesen

          Feel free to think what you want, i am not saying that it is shit, but i personally don’t think it looks like a good job.

      • Rinslowe

        Dev’s need all the friends one can get. The internet has a long memory especially for the guy who rains down on another mans hard work.
        No hate bro, just sayin. That could be you one day…

        The game isn’t very appealing visually but…

        • jjbredesen

          Yeah i understand that and i don’t want to make this guy look bad etc, but i do feel like it looks like a lazy game, and he could put more time in to it, but as i said further down, i have not tried it yet so i can’t judge.

          • Rinslowe

            I don’t think it looks very good either. And constructive criticism is impossible in the professional world to openly hold a grudge against. But I know I wouldn’t forget a guy who said my project was shit, lol…
            Just sayin bro.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah i completely agree, but was in a bad mood when i wrote it, so i let all my anger go to bashing the game, so it was kind of uncalled for. And yes i would not forget if someone called my game shit.

          • Rinslowe

            So when is your first game coming out? -_o
            I’ll be the first to call it awesome…
            Ha. :)

          • jjbredesen

            Well so far i have only experimented with Unity and made some first person survival/explore stuff, but nothing worth publishing just simple levels etc, don’t think i will be releasing a game before i have learned Java and C++ at an advance enough level, i am pretty much a noob now, just following youtube tutorials etc and trying to do my own stuff, but i will not have anything worth showing before next year if i actually have the time etc. Starting High School next year so i have to focus on that :/

          • Rinslowe

            Weren’t you in High School already?
            If not then dude, you’re like a kid genius…

          • jjbredesen

            I am 15, in Norway we do 7 years in Primary (5-13), 3 years Secondary (Junior High)(13-15) and then we do 3 years of High School (15-18) Still got 3months left.

            But nah would not call myself a kid genius there are kids that know like all the programming languages in the world and work for large companies like Microsoft etc.

    • Einar

      I’d look at the comments if I were you… I haven’t seen anyone thinking this looks good yet.

      • Ducked

        Well its not happening on this game. But I’ve been on Wii U Daily for over a year, and trust me fanboys have acted like this when the Wii U receives a cruddy game.

        • nexxus6

          The only one making over the top generalizations and ridiculous statements is you. You encounter one person who likes a game that you think is subpar and you paint a broad stroke to cover anyone that doesn’t view things the same as you.

    • greengecko007

      Actual Nintendo fanboy: OMG this is such a Mario Kart ripoff it looks so bad!

      Reality: It’s a $6.99 game, and it actually comes with a track editor, something Mario Kart does not have.

      I’m not saying it looks great, but calling it shit because it looks like a cheap game (which it is) seems a little silly to me.

      • Officer Raichu

        they upgraded the graphics they just made this trailer like a year ago the owner said

      • Ducked

        I thought it said $6.99 on STEAM? Unless I’m reading it wrong. And Nintendo fanboys think everything is copying their franchises lol.

        • greengecko007

          I’d imagine that it would be priced the same on all online stores. It doesn’t say that it is part of a sale.

    • nexxus6

      Where did anyone say that? Don’t answer that, because I know you are going to respond with, “One guy said it about this one game this one day, typical fanboys.”

  • Einar

    Why even bother making this?

    • Skelterz

      Desperation mario kart 8 is round the corner they think they can quickly cash in on a cheap clone whilst people wait but us Wii U owners are probably by now all black belts in the art on patience so nobody is going to buy it.

    • greengecko007

      I know right? It’s like that don’t understand that kart racing fans only want to play Mario Kart and not have any variety.

  • Curtis Hofer

    That game is for 5 year olds

    • Skelterz

      Even most 5 year olds will be like fuck this im gonna wait for mario kart.

      • Guest

        Exactly

      • Ducked

        That’s because parents spoil them to death…Literally..

  • Einar

    Regarding the track editor, I remember hearing about that coming to MK8 as well. Am I correct?

    • Enumerating Wishes

      There won’t be a track editor in MK8. It was considered but they decided not to add one.

      • Nostalgic_Chaos

        I’m totally okay with that. The game already looks beast the way it is, so much so that it doesn’t even need a damn track editor.

      • Einar

        Ah. That’s a shame.

    • greengecko007

      They’ve already confirmed it will not have a track editor.

      http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/04/03/why-mario-kart-8-doesnt-let-players-design-tracks

  • Enumerating Wishes

    This wouldn’t be a bad game if it had A LOT more polish. To me it kind of looks like it’s in the alpha stages (but apparently it’s not.)

    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      In all honesty, it looks over 10 years old, even if it had extra amounts of polishing. I’d still play Super Mario Kart over this, any day

      • Enumerating Wishes

        Polish would include graphics too, I agree with you that the graphics and presentation looks rather aged by today’s standards. Though comparing it to Mario Kart wouldn’t exactly be fair to the game like most other kart racers. I second your point on playing Super Mario Kart, but I don’t want to judge this one too harshly for being in the same genre.

      • FutureFox

        Sony had their own Mario Kart like game (forget the name) with a track editor. You don’t hear about that game anymore. These indie guys have no chance. Its an old looking game with a feature that is expected at best and outdated at the worst.

          • Suraj Alexander

            oh yh that’s it. i remember seeing the trailer for ps vita when it was announced

  • Nostalgic_Chaos

    This looks so much better than Mario Kart 8!

    …..Seriously, though. With Mario Kart 8 arriving in less than 40 days, what were they thinking? Almost nobody is going to buy this game.

    I do feel genuinely sorry for these kind of Indie developers though. This game will be a very, very small fish in a huge pond when Mario Kart 8 hits the shelves.

  • Wren Justin Umlauf

    Maybe its the nostalgia talking, because I used to play countless hours of Micro Machines on my gameboy color, but I think this game could be pretty fun. It obviously needs some work. Graphics, sound effects and that one singe crash flipping animation are the first things I’ve noticed, but if they touch these things up by the time of the release, they might see a sale from me. I like to support small developers as well, but I do need a game that I’ll actually play.

  • http://sites.google.com/site/wiinupro Justin

    You know this actually looks quite decent for what I’m assuming is an indie dev that is using Unity and it’s probably their first Unity game. You guys can hate but considering the amount of work that goes into this for a small tea, I say good job so far. A little bit of polish and a better UI will improve it. Not a game for me but ims sure there is a small audience that will enjoy it. I did have a lot of fun with the micro machines game on 64 when I was a kid.

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    Definitely not for me but yeah I can imagine that some people are willing to buy it for 7,- but seems to me the kind of game for casuals unlike other kart games like MK and Sonic’s version of MK, then there was long ago something like DK racing or something which fitted again in this category. That’s my two cents really…

  • Purple
  • David Horowitz

    This does not help the Wii U.

  • Ninjatendo_forever

    I think it sucks you guys are bitching….

    be glad people are making games for the Wii U. I think this game looks cool. has some great ideas, and if any of you remember REVOLT! this game should be cool in that way or concept anyway; revolt was fun a a while, but just not enough environment variables occurring for such a large world. anyway, stop your bitching or make a game yourself if you think your constant bitching will make any difference there…

  • TheGamerGeek128

    Maybe it’s because I’m not too big on racers in the first place, but this game looks VERY sub-par, not necessarily bad, but not very good either.

  • wiimenonowiiu

    What did i just watch the only things this adds to wii u is a 3rd party game this game will not sell
