I was actually kind of surprised to see Blur attack Mario Kart in this trailer, but it’s pretty funny. I figured Bizarre Creations would go more of the homage route, but let’s face it, the kart formula needed to be punched in the gut. Stick around for the end of the trailer for a pretty good zinger of a tag line. Blur comes out next week (5/25) for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
The real question is which racer will win out with Blur, Split/Second, and ModNation Racers all coming out this month. Interestingly enough, none of them use the traditional racing formula. Of course, if you’re like me, this just whet your appetite to go back and play some more Burnout Paradise while I wait for the dust to settle.
