The Windows version of the Kart Rider has been a little bit better compared to the previous arcade release. In the arcade release, you only get one track to play, and that is quite enough. With the Windows version, players have a lot more freedom when creating their own tracks. They can even create realistic tracks as they wish. There are a lot of karts to choose from as well, allowing multiple players to pick the one that suits them the best.
The story behind the Windows and mobile versions of the kart rider is about a boy named Lightning, who travels across the country in order to defeat some evil boss and become the best racer in the land. In the previous version, you could unlock some of the costumes for Lightning such as his trademark flame-like outfit or his light-purifying suit. This time around, the boy must defeat the evil Dr. Darkkan in order to obtain the ultimate costume. Although, it's unclear whether or not these costumes will be included in the mobile version of the game, they still make for a cool-looking costume.
It makes perfect sense that both versions of the game were developed by the two major franchises that created the formula; Nintendo and Nexon. Both companies have a lot of experience in developing these types of games, so it's no surprise that both versions look, sound, and feel pretty good. The controls for both versions of the game are very similar, which also means that all who played either version of the PC game, will easily be able to transition to the mobile version with no trouble. You can also purchase the mobile version through online retailers such as Gear Quest, if you don't have a Windows Mobile device. If you are planning on playing the PC version of this addictive online video game, then you owe it to yourself to check out the new versions that are now available.
