Like middle-aged men and golf, big-name videogame characters – regardless of their backgrounds or god-killing aptitudes – just can’t seem to stay away from cutesy kart-racing games. First there was Mario, then Sonic (and Banjo), and now Kratos, Ratchet and Clank, and Nathan Drake have undergone the necessary cranium-enlargement surgery to ride in tiny cars.

The Sony-centric trio (and Clank) are coming to ModNation Racers as part of a pre-order program. Pre-ordering from GameStop gets you the closest thing we’ll ever get to “Honey, I Shrunk The God of War,” Amazon nets you Ratchet and Clank, and Best Buy’s handing out Nathan Drake.

The game’s out on May 25, according to the PlayStation Blog.
