Fan mashup of 'Mario Kart' and 'Star Wars' is a gaming dream

'Star Kart' would be an instant pre-order... if it were real.

If you're like me, you spent your youth imagining what it'd be like if your favorite fictional universes got together -- heck, Aliens vs. Predator and Kingdom Hearts are practically kids' dreams made real. Well, some fans weren't willing to keep their fantasy locked in their heads. YouTube team Dark Pixel made Star Kart, a video mashup of Mario Kart and Star Wars that's pretty much the blend you'd hope it would be. The project (which took a year to produce) has Mario, Yoshi and crew racing Star Wars ships across a galaxy far, far away, complete with cute touches: shells replace laser cannons, getting knocked out means leaving hyperspace... and of course there's a Death Star trench race. Frankly, we wish Disney and Nintendo would find a way to make this a proper game, even if it's just a Mario Kart 8 add-on.
