Random: Nintendo Kart is all the rage on social media, following claims that Mario Kart 9 is “in active development”
Let’s not get us wrong, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an amazing game and arguably the best entry in the series to date, but it’s an upgraded port of a 2014 Wii U title – which means we’ve got technically has been playing the same game for a very long time now.
Fortunately, Nintendo could finally prepare to reveal a new entry – with claims from industry analyst Dr Serkan Toto earlier this week that “Mario Kart 9” is now in “active development” and could be teased. at some point in 2022. As usual, the latest game is expected to come with a “new twist” and that latest part is what sent the internet and social media into overdrive.
If the story of Mario Kart tells us anything, it’s likely a new game mechanic or some sort of gimmick, but that hasn’t stopped another idea from gaining traction online: Nintendo Kart.
Now, again, this is just fan speculation, but after the introduction of themed tracks and characters like Link from THE Legend of Zelda, the Inklings of Splatoon and Isabelle from Animal crossing in MK8 – many fans are starting to believe that the upcoming Mario Kart game might have a Super Smash Bros. moment and simply functionality all Nintendo franchise.
On Twitter, the hashtag ‘Nintendo Kart‘generated around 10,000 tweets. Here’s what some are saying:
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is Nintendo’s best Switch game – selling over 38 million units worldwide as of September 30, 2021.
With that in mind, if “Nintendo Kart” ended up becoming a thing at some point in the future, we can’t see the company moving away from the strong Mario Kart brand. Looking at all of this in a more positive light, perhaps Nintendo could also use an “all-star” Mario Kart game to introduce even more people to other Nintendo series.
