While Sonic's most recent kart racer outings in Sega All Stars Racing and it's sequel were pretty good, they are still no match for the king of the kart racer mountain, Mario Kart, but fear not, as you can now play as Sonic The Hedgehog in Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U thanks to this mod!
While Mario Kart has already played host to other characters from various other Nintendo franchises, it's never featured characters from third parties, unlike Super Smash Bros. for example. One modder has decided not to wait, however, and has managed to port SEGA's famous blue hedgehog into the game on Wii U.
The mod author, CorBond57, has replaced the Metal Mario character with that of the blue blur. The character model looks perfect, however, as the mod is not yet finished, sounds are still that of Metal Mario at the moment.
While somewhat amusing to hear Mario's voice come from Sonic, the author has promised to release updates in the near future.
