Tired of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? Want a kart racer in the vein of Road Rash with a horror twist? You might be interested in checking out Wales Interactive and Milky Tea Studios’ Coffin Dodgers, which is headed to the Nintendo Switch on March 13th.
The game is more of a lighthearted affair, as the Grim Reaper himself has taken up residence in a retirement village called Sunny Pines, looking to harvest some souls. Players will choose from one of seven of the residents as their racer, each with their own unique mobility scooter. Armed with a variety of upgradable homemade weapons and gadgets, the player must avoid losing to the Reaper and his zombie minions.
Coffin Dodgers includes a selection of 13 unique tracks, a 2-4 player local multiplayer mode, a Story Mode, a “Crazy Granddad” Mode where you race against the clock in the entire Sunny Pines district, and the ability to customize your racer’s scooter. Yeah, it’s not the gorefest of Carmageddon or the intensity of Twisted Metal, but sometimes you just want something light.
