Doesn't seem to be much sense in Mario Kart. Would much rather see a new entry in either F-Zero or Kirby Air Ride, since those appeal, theoretically, to a different audience.
Neither of those sound like a major title. One is a niche racer from a niche genre, and the other a spin-off.
I am not saying it’s a DKR game, but it’s the best theory I’ve read so far, IMO. It’s a game with potential of 10M+ given its original sold over 4.8m on the N64, and the poorly received and limited port on DS still managed to get 1.6m. Although, I wonder what kind of hook it could have? 12 player local and up to 64 via WiFi/online? DKR was a nice distraction from Mario Kart, but only surpassed it for a short time in sales on the N64; also, while people played MK64 regularly all the way up to Mario Kart Wii, DKR did fall out of favour by the end of the PSX/N64 generation.
So, a new DKR can’t sell fully on legacy, IMO. It needs a big hook.Last edited by Jumpin - on 17 February 2020
