I know it sounds crazy, but there are plenty of people who didn't think Kirby Air Ride or Diddy Kong Racing would work, but they ended up being great games, the former being wildly unappreciated when it came out.

Now that we've seen Link make his way into Mario Kart, and the introduction of the Master Cycle Zero in Breath of The Wild, who says we can't have a Legend of Zelda racing spin-off? :)

It shouldn't just be another kart racer though. The game would have to change things up enough that it's own thing, instead of being just another Mario Kart clone. Having the Master Cycle be Link's vehicle for the game would be an absolute must, and since it's Zelda-related it would need a story and hub world like Diddy Kong Racing. Most likely the story would be something involving a plot by Ganon to AGAIN get all three Tri-Force segments, but story mode would let you change characters.

Maybe give the racing it's own combat system, like striking other characters with iconic Zelda weapons, and use Rupees to buy vehicle upgrades.

Well, those are my thoughts on how a Zelda racing game could work, what about you? :)

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I think having Link in Mario Kart is enough. They could add Zelda and Ganondorf next time



Nothing to see here, move along

At that point then it might as well be Nintendo Kart instead of Mario Kart though.

They could make Nintendo Kart, but probably still call it Mario Kart because that brand-name is probably too big at this point

It practically already is.  Last I checked...

 

Link

Animal Crossing Characters

Inklings

 

...are not Mario characters.  I honestly see Mario Kart being more like Smash in terms of characters by the next mainline release.

Which is why we should do a non-Mario Nintendo racing spin-off, like for Zelda.



Can't be less like Zelda than Breath of the Wild was.



I am currently sigless.

Of course it could work, but what's the point?
