The single player story mode is an adventure starring King, Dragon, Ninja and a host of other Raskulls, as they trek across three massive worlds in search of the mystical Shiny Stones. The Stones possess huge amounts of power, and as King himself says, they are “very important to the plot.” The game is full of tongue-in-cheek humor and visual gags, all the more effective when delivered by the contagiously cute Raskulls.
Up to four players can jump straight in on the same console via split-screen local multiplayer, and also online via a simple matchmaking system. The core focus is racing, as the Raskulls jump, swim and bounce their way through block-filled environments. However, the game reaches a new level of intensity with the introduction of combat items such as Flame Charge and Thunder Staff, along with the constant collection of Boosties to fill the Frenzy bar, which activates super speed for short bursts.
Throughout the main adventure, over ten original gameplay types will be available in addition to the normal racing events. This include Ammo Scrooge, where players have limited shots to navigate a complex maze of blocks, and Bomb Diffusion, in which a number of bombs are placed throughout each level, and must be carefully navigated and disarmed.
The best of the best Raskulls players will compete for the fastest times and highest scores via global leaderboards. The online component will be incredibly deep, with intense Grand Prix matches and Quick Race events. With alternate paths to take, varying block formations and array of powerups, no two races will be the same.
