If a Mario Kart title is happening this year then it is a rare opportunity for Nintendo to radically experiment with the fundamentals of the series with zero risk of hurting the IP. If it fails, they can just go back to promoting Mario Kart 8:Deluxe but if it succeeds, they'll be able to expand their well of options for future Mario Kart iterations. If they play their cards right, they could create a kart game that's different enough to warrant making it its own series alongside Mario Kart without any risk of cannibalization.
