Mario Kart Modder Adds Mouthful Mode Kirby To MK8

After the reveal of Mouthful Mode in the latest Kirby and the Forgotten Land trailer, someone has added Carby into Mario Kart 8.

Do you remember last week when Kirby swallowed a whole car? Yeah, we haven’t stopped thinking about it either. And apparently, neither has modder RiazorMC.

On February 11, RiazorMC posted a video on Twitter sharing the monstrosity that is Carby in Mario Kart 8. As much as Kirby enveloping various objects is the stuff of an eldritch nightmare, this is an incredibly good mod. It’s also impressive how quickly the mod was put into action, only two days after last week’s Nintendo Direct.

The video, also posted to RiazorMC’s YouTube channel, shows off the mod in action. It is of course set to the best Kirby theme too, Gourmet Race. Which is the only appropriate track to use in Mario Kart. Though the car Kirby has his mouth wrapped around isn’t the same one from Kirby and the Forgotten Land, the pink puffball’s proportions do look the same.

The only way the mod could be improved is if Kirby would blink. As the thousand yard stare does kind of add to the nightmare fuel that is Mouthful Mode. Unfortunately, the mod doesn’t seem publicly available to download as of yet. RiazorMC hasn’t commented on whether they plan to release the mod or not. 

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is available March 25 on Nintendo Switch. So you don’t have to wait too long to get a taste of Mouthful Mode.
