10 Kart Racing Games You Won't Believe Exist 

10. Mega Man: Battle & Chase

Capcom

We start with a game so obscure, it didn't reach the US until almost a decade after it was first released.

Mega Man has been delighting gamers since the late 80s, and was one of the first mascots for both Capcom and Nintendo.

Alongside over a dozen games, Mega Man has appeared in TV shows, comic books, and is destined for the big screen some time very soon.

One of the blue hero's lesser-known spin-offs came in 1997 with the release of Mega Man: Battle & Chase. The game featured ten playable characters from the series and players could win special items and customisation options by defeating certain characters or winning certain races.

The game was only released in Japan and the PAL region originally, leaving out North America. This changed in 2006, when the title was included as part of the Mega Man X Collection. This was the first time American audiences could enjoy the racer but, if they'd read the reviews beforehand, they may not have even bothered to boot it up.

The game's reviews were mixed with many calling it a simple Mario Kart rip-off. So definitely worth that nine year wait, then?
