Konami announced at GamesCon that they are releasing the "the definitive kart racer" for the iPhone with up to 6 person multiplayer (presumed to be local). The game offers a 3D cartoon style and brings ten classic Konami gaming heroes to the track across 16 themed circuits.
Using the traditional third-person view, players guide their chosen character around the laps, using whatever they can to steal an advantage over their CPU or multi-player rivals. Nitro boosts can give a welcome burst of speed, while a wide range of extras that can be picked up during the race and can be used to slow down opposing karts.<
There are five single-player modes and linked multi-player races and competitions. The press release also mentions a partnership with Polarbit who was responsible for the early and popular Crash Bandikoot Nitro Kart 3D kart racer for the iPhone.
Here's a trailer of the game which is due for release in August:
