Oh yes, look at those stunning environments.

That being said, my 4 year old son would probably love this.

There's nothing inexplicable about it.
When consumers demand a sequel, you give it to them

Why not the farm animals as characters?

I want GarfieldMinusGarfield Kart. Just Jon, driving in circles, forever.

It could be the next Desert Bus!

I'm a sucker for kart racers so I will probably play it, regardless of the meme status of the first game. Fight me.

Can't wait to play the midnight release and eat all my favorite Garfield themed and shaped snacks.

Ah yes, the very iconic settings and places of the Garfield universe like...the Arbuckle house? And...I think there was a farm in that Garfield & Friends TV show?

...how the hell did they come up with SIXTEEN locations?

Lol, and here was me thinking CTR would be the best-selling kart racing game of the year.

Well that's what you get when Nintendo isn't releasing more MK or Diddy Kong racing, leaving money on the table :P

One has to wonder how much the 1st one sold to get a sequel, probably the game didnt cost a lot of money to make.

The world is strange, where sequels are being developed from "meme money" where people are ironically buying bad games causing them to be profitable.

Same thing happened to Bubsy, I kind of love it.

Why? Because it became a meme and got stuff like wario64 always warning about sales =P

Same reason Bad Rats got a sequel
