As we all know, Kirby can inhale pretty much anything and take on its features or form. In one of the trailers for the latest game, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, we saw him take the shape of a car. Modder Gary J Paterson has taken this to its logical conclusion and added a Kirby car mod to the racing game Assetto Corsa, and it's just as amazing as you'd expect. He's also been added to Mario Kart 8.
The mod can be downloaded from RaceDepartment, and is the fourth in a line of annual mods Paterson puts up. They say the mod was a rushed job they only spent two and a half days on, but it honestly looks pretty amazing considering that was all the time it took.
The work in progress photos shared by Paterson are excellent because not only do they show Kirby looking adorably cross, but they also show how his cute little feet dangle over the exhaust. It's just so damn cute. Apparently the brakes on the car handle like shit though, so watch out for that.
Assetto Corsa Competizione, to use its full name, is an Italian racing simulator developed and published by Kunos Simulazioni. It's available on Steam and this Kirby mod seems to be doing wonders for its marketing. The No Context Kirby tweet has already been shared almost 25,000 times and will likely inspire a few people to pick up the game and enter the Kirby equivalent of NASCAR. The game is also available on consoles, but if you're here for the Kirby mod the PC version is the way to go.
People love to make outlandish car designs in video games. While none quite reach the same levels of weird as the Kirby car, some come close, and have even gotten people banned from games. One Forza Horizon 5 player got banned for 8,000 years for making a car with a Kim Jong-Un livery.
