Mario Kart 8 has been out of the limelight since it first struck internet gold with Luigi’s Death Stare. However, a recent collaboration with Disney is hoping to bring the critically-acclaimed kart racer to the forefront.

Nintendo announced a brand new TV special, “Clash of Karts: Mario Kart 8” will be airing on Disney XD beginning December 5 at 8 PM ET. The series will pit some of the top young gamers with YouTube personalities racing for the finish line. Some of the announced YouTubers are Andre (Black Nerd Comedy), AtomicMari, Sethbling, and Strawburry 17, with eight other unannounced guests pending. Little else besides this is known, though hopefully they are able to capture the magic of the 2015 Nintendo World Championship.
