Diddy Kong Racing! ❤

From Retro? Maybe it's that Star Fox racing...

Nintendo would release Mario kart 9 far from the holiday season. Because they can generate extra sales before it reaches at peak in the holiday.

Not strange for the series, Double Dash released for its respective holiday season.

You're all spelling tyres wrong.

Twats at NintendoLife, I thought they were British, just copied over the title.

So did DS & 7

Yeah, but I'm not giving them the benefit of the doubt. Especially after the asswipe that is Mario Kart Tour.

MK9 for Switch makes no sense. They should hold off until the next console. They are still selling buttloads of 8 that they would canabolize.

If they release Diddy Kong Racing 2 it would need to be vastly differentiated.

I guess tires rules out Starfox racing.

What makes no sense is leaving tons of money on the table that would also please a majority of the fanbase. I don't think Nintendo is going to ignore the fact that far more fans like Mario Kart than any other racer just cause a port already exist on the system. A 20+ million seller like MK9, even if it were to cut MK8D's legs to 0 (lol no), would still net a lot more profit than the 2-3 million sales Diddy Kong/F-Zero/Kirby Air Ride would generate. From both a consumer and business standpoint, MK9 should hold more priority than most other games let alone just racers.

I've read a rumor that Nintendo is strongly considering to delay Breath of the Wild 2 until 2025 because the first game is still selling so well.

I've also read another rumor that stated that Animal Crossing and the remake of Xenoblade Chronicles are the last first party releases in 2020 because there's no reason to release any more new games when so many of the old ones are still doing so well.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

As much as I'd like a brand new Mario Kart after so long, I would find it pretty odd to release at this point.

Wow people. Zelda had new story, making it a new experience. As does Xenoblade. Mario kart 9 won't really offer much more than 8, some new tracks and maybe some new characters mixed with a lot of re used tracks from older games, and it won't even look better being on the same system.

If they said all new tracks, tons of new characters, tons of new modes, redid the online to make it a proper esport, and added a story mode then that would be fine, but they won't do all that. Just adding new tracks is DLC to me, and a lot won't buy it already having 8 which will look just as good. 

They should wait until the next device so they can make a huge graphical leap forward with time to build tons of new features, 60fps, new online modes and give the Switch 2 the proper launch game it needs so that it won't repeat the success/failure cycle Nintendo has from one gen to the next. The long game is the only thing that matters.

I shouldn't even have to explain why a sequel to Zelda and XC would bring a lot more new elements than a sequel to a non-story mode kart racer.



I mean...they really only Initially released MK 8 deluxe on the switch as an early on method of filling a gap in game release schedules and probably weren’t necessarily anticipating it would become the Systems biggest seller...and game development takes a few years. So it’s possible, in fact highly probable they have been working on mk8 successor to some capacity for a few years now. So it’s possible in my mind that we’ll see an mk9 sooner rather than later.

Then why haven't they released multiple mario karts every generation? We know the answer, because they would just compete against each other. And most people who bought the first one wouldn't bother with the second one because they already have the Switch Mario Kart. Mario Kart isn't gonna happen. Deal with it. Mario Kart 9 will probably be Switch 2 launch title. It makes no business sense for them to try to cannibalize their best selling game with a sequel on the same system (which they've never done) that would no doubt be very similar, rather than spend those resources making a different game that will sell on its own and not cut into the sales of their biggest seller. The only people who want Nintendo to completely change their Mario Kart strategy and release two Mario Karts on a single system are some of the Wii U owners who already had 8 on the Wii U. Needless to say thats a very small percentage of Switch owners and Mario Kart 8D owners.

Mario Kart 9 isn't happened on Switch. It would be a stupid decision and would be totally changing Mario Kart from a one per system series. There would be no point in releasing another mario kart for the same system. Not gonna happen. Nobody wants this. What would you rather have, another very similar mario kart that we already have on the system, or a brand new game? 99% of people would prefer a new game.

lol 8.5 million wii u owners had Mario Kart 8, 23 million have it on Switch, I’m sure most of those wii u owners probably have re-bought it on switch that’s nearly 37% of MK8D Owners wanting a sequel, that’s a small percentage? 

I’d like a new mario kart at this point, Give me a new gimmick in it with new tracks, parts and characters etc. I’d buy it day one.
I agree it seems unlikely Nintendo will want to cut the legs shorter but still it would be nice!
