“All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts”

Fantendo - Riders is a 2015 arcade racer developed by Inora and the first Fantendoverse crossover done by Sr.Wario. A reboot of Fantendo Riders, the game features major Fantendoverse characters racing each other using X Boards in search of a legendary treasure.
All across the Fantendoverse, people begin to find X Riders, vehicles that have extreme power. Alongside them are a challenge to race to a wish granting treasure...
A blue, green, and red blur overtakes a black screen, revealing a circular course suspended in outer space. These blurs stop in their tracks, revealing Unten, Leah Needlenam, and 3.14. Unten takes out Fanti, blasting electricity at the other two, which is blocked by a giant pie. As 3.14 and Unten tussle, Leah secretly makes her way near the finish line, but she's knocked out of the way by Zerita. The four begin to race once more, showing a blue, green, red, and orange blur racing around a circle, revealing the game's logo.
Fantendo - Riders is a 3D arcade racing game that mixes elements from snowboarding titles, Sonic Riders, and Mario Kart. The core gameplay revolves around racing around 3 lap courses while avoiding hazards and collecting Items, which can be used to the player's advantage. The game features lots of drops and ramps, which lead in to the Trick mechanic of the game. When in mid-air do the on-screen button sequence before landing to pull of a Trick. Tricks fill up the X Meter, and when it is full, players can perform an X Technique, unique to every character.
Free Race is a race through the course of the player's choice just for fun. Here, races can be customized, and it can be played with multiple players, computers, or online.
The game's story mode, Riding on a Wish features consecutive races interspersed with missions and boss battles.
Grand Prix is basically Riding on a Wish without the variety and story, taking players through every course in a race to see the best.
Riders Tour features players roaming across a large area, collecting power-ups and completing randomized missions to power up their board for a race.
