Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Rumour: The Major Switch Title This Holiday Season Could Have "Tyres" In It

I think it would be silly to release another Mario Kart. 8 Deluxe sold another 4M units in the latest report. You're just going to shoot the sales of that game in the foot. But I can't think of any other Nintendo game with tires that could take a holiday spot.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love a new Kart, who wouldn't at this point but 8 Deluxe is still selling so well.

Mario Kart 8 is old, it came out 6 years ago.

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.

Mario Kart 8 is a Wii U game, it was designed around the Wii U's various hardware nuances, it isn't putting the Switchs 3x extra Ram, double the memory bandwidth, increased geometry, texturing and shader and streaming capabilities to full use.

Mario Kart 9 can take things allot further on the visuals front.

Uhh...I know how old 8 is. Which is why I said "I'd love a new Kart, who wouldn't at this point". Yes, it's obvious it's an old game but the fact remains that it's still selling like a new game. 



My guess would be:

"Excite" (Bike/Truck) Series

Thats fine as a smaller support title but it wouldnt be "the major holiday title" like the rumor suggests.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

If Tyres is an NPC in the new Metroid, then great.

Doesn't help that the game gets bundled heavily as well.

Either way, I think a new entry could be fitting, Mario Kart 8 has shifted 22.96 million copies across WiiU and Switch (Granted there is some double dipping in that number, but who gives a shit.)
That is 22.96 million~ potential customers that a Mario Kart 9 could be very tempting for, so while yes... Mario Kart 8 is still selling, still priced high, Mario Kart 8 could help shift more consoles like it did for the WiiU.

Quit playing with my emotions!

I don't understand how people can't be excited for this... Like, I literally loved the game so much that I could even say I liked it more than MK, at least when I was little... 

I would be extremely happy if this was true.

Super underrated in the sense that it got massively overshadowed by Mario Kart. I would say MK64 was a little better overall but I loved the single player campaign in DKR and the fact that you could choose between 3 different types of vehicles. 

Brand new online DKR for Switch would be epic

Assuming it works, it's a great sell over more Mario Kart. 

That's why it hasn't been made, because F-Zero isn't a great sell over most of their other series let alone Mario Kart. Just doesn't make sense to go with an unproven seller over a guaranteed 20+ million seller. Not saying F-Zero should never be given another chance, but it definitely should be low on the priority list. It's not to be made if it'll take resources away from bigger games.

Let me clarify. We already have a Mario Kart title on Switch, so another Mario Kart isn't going to move the needle. F-Zero offers something the Switch does have and can offer a difference experience. It can also be used in conjunction with their online. Not even saying they can't have both. They could easily outsource it to another studio which is what they did with F-Zero GX. Then you'd have your cake and eat it too. Comparing to Mario Kart was probably a bad idea. Nonetheless, it's silly they haven't had another one.

It actually sold 22.96M on Switch alone. With a further 8.5M on WiiU give or take.

Isn't it the top selling Switch game period?
