Prediction: Mario Kart 9 won't release until a decade or more after MK8

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Prediction: Mario Kart 9 won't release until a decade or more after MK8

Prediction: You're wrong.

Nintendo likes money.

Mario Kart 9 is being developed right now as you're reading this post.

I don't know, I can easily see MK9 around 2020.



No way, OP. There's always been a new Mario Kart game on Nintendo platforms since the SNES. It would be a big mistake to not make a new one for the Switch.

So far, it's one MK per device. A new one announced so recently after the release of MK8D would split the community or make MK8D obsllete too fast. I don't count on a next MK for the next 3-4 years.

 

I also don't believe in a genre change.

I MK8D cross compatible online with the Wii U version?

I don't think so.

And that's not splitting the community?

Not a decade but I can see MK9 being an early title the Switch's successor.

Which would make it about a decade after MK8, unless you think Switch is having a 4 year life cycle or less.

Then every new console generation is a community split for you? OK. I just don't want that to happen during one console generation. I didn't even liked the moment valve announced L4D2 shortly after L4D1. 

But to be honest, even DLC can split the community, because you have the people playing only the vanilla version and the people playing the DLC one. It's annoying, but this is what happens. I also see DLC as a smaller investment compared to a MK9 full game release.

It does feel like MK has little elsewhere to go in its traditional format. 8 pretty much maximized it. Where could they go from here? Diddy Kong Racing 2. Of course Mario has far more brand recognition than Diddy does, so they'll call it MK9 or some offshoot. ~3 years from now, one can hope. There's my big prediction for the day.



A decade is too long between mk releases,mk9 probably will be released in 2018-2020



Surly new MK is in production as we speak. I'd say anywhere from three to five years from now. Probably by the end of switch's lifespan.
