KartRider Drift Arrvies on Console

Welcome to Season 1 of KartRider: Drift! We're racing ahead with full console crossplay and a huge update filled with new tracks to race on, new karts to collect and customize, new looks for the expanding cast of racers, and more!

Console Play and Account Linking

KartRider: Drift is now available on console! You can head to the PlayStation Store or Xbox Store to download KartRider: Drift on your console.

Racers wishing to start playing immediately will not be required to create or link to a Nexon account, and will be able to race freely on their platform of choice. A guest account will be created, and remain linked to your PlayStation or Xbox account.

If you wish to keep your progression from PC or Mobile play, or make that an option for later, you can link your account via the Account Linking page. You can also unlink your Nexon account either at that page, or in-game in the [Settings -> Manage Account -> Unlink] menu.

Learn more about Account Linking in the forum post here.
