It was only a matter of time: the pink puffball himself has been added to the roster of Mario Kart 8 for the Wii U, though only unofficially, of course. Like Sonic the Hedgehog and Captain Olimar before him, Kirby has been shown off on YouTube racing against the Mushroom Kingdom's finest.

Modded over Koopa Troopa, Kirby displays his trademark cuteness in racing action once again thanks to YouTube user Reyes Rosas. The biddybuggy kart has been transformed into a Warp Star kart for this mod too, and anyone can download it for some Kirby Air Ride feels.
