So there have been rumours going around for maybe an hour now (coming from a tweet) that a Mario and Sonic racing title is in the works. So, if this happends, will it be a good thing for Nintendo (I'm not even going to bother to as if it is for SEGA)? Since I'm pretty sure that the title would be for Wii U (only one mario kart pr. console), it will of cource sell systems. But will it do more than a stand alone Mario Kart? Nintendo would get help on developing the title, but they would also need to share the revenue of the software (remind you, MK on ds sold close to 30 million, the Wii game sold over 30 million), which is a lot of money. But the game woud be out sooner (probably) with the help of SEGA, and Nintendo needs to get stuff out this christmas.  

 

What do you think? How much would such a game sell? Would it do more than just a Mario Kart U? Will Nintendo benefit from this?

 

And here is a link to the MK/Sonic racing story: http://mynintendonews.com/2013/05/17/could-there-be-a-mario-kart-and-sonic-racing-crossover-on-the-way/

Ofcourse they will benefit. Just like they did with the Olympics threads.

SEGA would surely benefit from this. The Mario Kart franchise might benefit from a little kick in the pants. Whether or not Nintendo would benefit may depend on how much (worthwhile) support they manage to wrangle from SEGA from this deal.

The thing is, that when they made the Mario and Sonic Olympics games, they didn't replace anything. If Mario and Sonic Racing get's released this  christmas do you believe tht Nintendo will make a Mario Kart for the same Christmas/next year? I think they will make one of them, and this is where my question in the OP comes in.

But wouldn't SEGA demand say 30% of the income of the game? That is a massive blow for a series were you sell at least 10 millions, maybe more. That is a lot of income lost for Nintendo right there.

There might also be the possibility that the rivalry billing could drive sales up substantially. Who's to say? Nintendo works in mysterious ways.

I say this is enough. why make another one? Just add in Sonic characters and locations and call it a day.
