Novel Entertainment has partnered with P2 Games to create a new racing game for its Horrid Henry brand. Targeting kids ages 6 and up and families, “Horrid Henry’s Krazy Karts” will initially be available exclusively from the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch worldwide starting Jan. 21.   

Based on Novel Entertainment’s TV series, “Horrid Henry,” the new game will enable players to race as Horrid Henry or go head-to-head with him as Rude Ralph, Moody Margaret, Perfect Peter, Brainy Brian or Singing Soraya, gaining cups and upgrades to become the ultimate Horrid Hero.  

The game features 40 levels set across four themed locations: Gross World, Ashton Town, Ashton Primary and the Park. During the races, players control their racing karts to swoop over jumps and dodge obstacles, goo and slime. Fans are also able to customize their kart in the Wacky Workshop for extra advantage and win perfect power-up tokens.  

“Horrid Henry’s Krazy Karts” will be available to play in single and multiplayer modes as well as offering both a tournament and race mode option. The game also features a level design editor, letting users create and share their own horridly tricky challenges. 

 “There continues to be a high expectation from Horrid Henry’s extensive international fan base for engaging ways to experience the brand across a multitude of formats and platforms,” says Lucinda Whiteley, co-founder, creative director, Novel Entertainment. “As such, it’s fantastic to once again team up with P2 Games and bring fans a new action-packed racing game, which incorporates all the ‘Horrid Henry’ elements they know and love. As one of the first character and entertainment brands to be brought to life for both kids and family audiences on Nintendo Switch, we’re confident ‘Horrid Henry’s Krazy Karts’ is going to be a huge hit with gamers of all ages and keep them entertained for a long time to come.”  

 “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Novel Entertainment once again to introduce the hugely successful Horrid Henry brand to Nintendo Switch,” says Gerry Whiteside, co-director, P2. “This is the first game that P2, in collaboration with Mobile Pie, has developed for this device and we believe there’s a huge gap in the market for high-quality kids’ gaming content. Producing a racing game centered around Horrid Henry and his friends has been so much fun and we’re really excited to offer fans across the globe the chance to play this action-packed, family-friendly game.”
