Nintendo considered completing Mario Kart 7 on 3DS by the end of this year "an act of emergency", the game's producer has admitted.

Mario Kart 7 initially started life as an internal project staffed by eight people, producer Hideki Konno revealed in a new Iwata Asks interview

But several production designers were moved to work on 3DS launch title Nintendogs + Cats to ensure that game was ready for the handheld's release line-up.

Nintendo eventually called on the services of Metroid Prime Trilogy and Donkey Kong Country developer Retro Studios to make sure Mario Kart 7 was finished this year.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

This is something. I see that they really needed to have the 3DS to sell really well and apparently mario 3D land wasn't enough. Also this means retro just got their game delayed -_-

Looks like at least somebody inside Nintendo realized that the easy times are a thing of the past. Now the only question is how consequent Nintendo will be in the coming years.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I would've preferred that they waited and put in single player vs mode.



It should have been treated as such even before it got to this point. They should have known from the system's launch that they needed Super Mario 3D Land and MK7 by the first holiday season. Having these two games available will put most doom critics to rest. Forcing them into hibernation only to have them return next spring with their usual spew of misinformation.

Hmm. I wonder what this says for what Retro Studios is up to, if they were called away from something for this.

By next spring the PS Vita will be available worldwide and struggle, so the only doom the 3DS is going to face in the near future is the one called by the people who want to see dedicated handhelds gone altogether.

It's pretty cool that retro studios did all the classic courses. Now that Mario Kart is completed both companies can work on new games. So this article confirms 2 new games are in production. =3

i am excited too play this game :)
