We're really thinking that we'll get a Mario Kart 9 on Switch???
I'm the only one whose skeptical of the idea???
Why fix what isn't broken???

Because if they don't make Mario Kart 9 on Switch, then there would be a 6+ year gap between Mario Kart releases, and 9+ years between brand new versions. This would be utterly ridiculous considering that Mario Kart is Nintendo's most popular franchise as of right now. It's the top game on both 3DS and Wii U, and it's number 2 on Switch despite just being a port of the Wii U version. We haven't gone three years without a Mario Kart game being released since 2002.

I predicted this last year that we might get a decade gap between new MK games, bc there really is no need for MK9 when MK8D perfected the series so well and it's essentially a brand new MK game to most Switch owners. Why waste the dev time and resources on another MK game which would likely just be new tracks and not much else? They can do DLC for that. They should invest that into other games which can offer fresher experiences and then when we finally get MK9 on the Switch's successor it will be a true next step in the franchise opposed to just a minor upgrade.
