Hank Hill is getting behind the wheel. And he’s not alone. Many other characters from shows like American Dad, Family Guy!, and more are joining the King of the Hill team to race for the gold in a new Apple Arcade game. Basically, we’re looking at Mario Kart but populated by the denizens of 20th Television’s animated shows. It’s a lot to take in, but we feel good about it… We think.
Warped Kart Racers certainly fits the mood of this game. The beloved characters of the Mario Kart world offer us a certain kind of nostalgia, a wholesome, brightly-colored kind. And this game offers us nostalgia, but of a different brand. Mario Kart drivers can play dirty, but we feel like they won’t hold a candle to this crew.
The Warped Kart Racers teaser shares more about the game itself. It notes:
Get warped into the ultimate kart racing game – by yourself, or multiplayer – featuring the stars of 20th Television’s hit animated shows: American Dad!, Family Guy, King of the Hill and Solar Opposites! Experience iconic locations and even some surprise ones in your quest for karting glory!

Master RACING AND BATTLING across 16 maps drawn from fan-favorite episodes.

According to The Verge, this King of the Hill meets Mario Kart adventure will come to Apple’s subscription gaming service. It’s expected to release on May 20.
Could this be the greatest crossover of all time? We guess it very well may be for some of us out there.
