El Chavo Kart is like Mario Kart if it was based on a 70s Mexican sitcom

Wednesday, 11th September 2013 04:21 GMT By Ewan Miller

In more Latin America news, Mexican studio Slang are developing a game based on a immensely popular Latin sitcom from the 70s called El Chavo, which centres around the adventures of a young boy in an apartment complex played by a grown man. There’s a surprisingly impressive video of the game below the jump and it’s apparently coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Vita.

Now the game appears to be based not primarily on the old sitcom but rather a children’s cartoon version that’s been made for the last few years, but I’m still impressed by the level of polish that’s gone into a game that will probably never touch either the English of Japanese markets.

Although it has been rated by the ESRB, so who knows?

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    Well, the cartoon is pretty bad. But El Chavo (Chaves in brazil) is a classic here in latin america, to this day it’s still airing in the free tv.

    The game is looking really fun, but that cartoon creates a lot of hate… I doubt this is going to be a success, sadly.

    @2 Great news for us brazilians! Chaves is a classic here, one of the most popular TV Show of all-time. But I had to admit: the cartoon is so bad!

    It would have been a TON BETTER if it was based on the original TV series somehow. The cartoon is pretty meh… the original series is an international, immortal source of entertainment.

    That doesn’t look like Mario Kart. It looks like a clone of Sega and Sonic Allstars.

    More than should be reasonable in my opinion. I hope Sega are on the ball.

    A lot of memories came into my head when I started to play El Chavo Kart. It is a decent game for a decent price and it can be play by anyone at any age. This video game is the first one published by a Latin Publisher (Slang) the only non-American publisher approved by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) AWSOME!
