Once upon a time, Ubisoft released a Mario Kart-style racing game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System that one-upped (two-upped?) the Nintendo classic by supporting up to 4 players competing simultaneously on a single screen.
The game itself wasn't terrible, but if the game's title, Street Racer, didn't necessarily imply a mashup of Street Fighter II and Speed Racer, the game's logo design certainly did:
Also note that the competitor featured here, Helmut von Pointenegger, borrows a page from Wario's book of taunts: "I'm gonna vin!"
I guess if you can't be Mario Kart, Street Fighter or Speed Racer, you might as well borrow a little from all three and hope you can confuse a few consumers into shelling out for your "original IP."
Go Street Racer! Go!
