A creative fan designs a cardboard arcade Mario kart machine along with a driving kart from the popular Nintendo series.
the Mario Kart Series remains one of the most popular and successful around the world. Mario Kart 8 deluxe recently became the best-selling game in the series as the franchise as a whole has sold over 160 million copies worldwide. It’s easy to wonder what it would be like to drive a kart from the games in real life, and one creative fan wanted to try it for themselves, with amazing results.
DanCreator’s recent video has received a lot of attention. In the video, DanCreator takes everyday cardboard and turns it into a Mario Kart Slot machine and a driving kart. The functionality of these creations is impressive to say the least, but the visual design can be even more impressive.
The video begins with DanCreator creating a Nintendo Labo-like arcade version of it Mario Kart. Some parts of the design are extremely complicated, e.g. B. Making an actual gas pedal that uses the Joy-Con along with a cardboard wheel that uses another to steer. Meanwhile, the massive arcade base that holds the TV and Switch, and a comfortable seat are also part of the creation. The YouTuber then polishes the design with colors, speakers attached to the chair, LED lights, and more.
As impressive as that Mario Kart Arcade machine is, DanCreator one gears up in the second half of the video by demonstrating a drivable kart. The YouTuber uses inflatable pool tubes and a vacuum that forces air out to create a floating effect. While the base of the kart is those pool tubes and plywood, the rest of the creation is cardboard. DanCreator pimps the kart again with LED lights, beautiful colors and more. Finally, the kart is tested in a large gym where the cardboard creation appears to float above the smooth surface.
The video on YouTube has more than a million and a half views as the comments are filled with Nintendo fans who would love their own cardboard karts. DanCreator Cardboard Arcade seems like a great way to enjoy the frenzied racer as well as the new DLC for Mario Kart 8 deluxe. And the wheeled machine might not have many features, but it does look pretty stunning.
DanCreator’s construction isn’t the first time someone has combined Labo-like cardboard and Mario Kart. The Nintendo fanbase is certainly a resourceful group. Nintendo games have always been about innovation and smiles, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that fans are constantly inspired by Mario and co. to create true masterpieces.
Mario Kart 8 deluxe is available now for Nintendo Switch.
