According to a game industry analyst, Nintendo is working on Mario Kart 9 and will probably unveil it this year.
According to the latest game news, سِرکان توتو, A Tokyo-based gaming industry analyst, recently wrote an article for the Games Industry website, outlining what he predicts will happen in the video game industry in 2022. He, meanwhile, claims that Mario Kart 9, the next version of the Mario Kart racing and arcade series, is in the process of being built on Nintendo.
“I know Mario Kart 8 Deluxe still sells well on the Nintendo Switch, but Tutu says,” [بهنظر میرسد که] “Mario Kart 9 is seriously under construction.” He also points out that Nintendo may unveil the Mario Card 9 this year.
Tutu also says that the latest version of this popular series will be available to fans with a “new change”. Of course, this is not a new issue, and each of the new versions of Mario Card will change the formula of the secret karting tournament. For example, in one version, two characters ride in a karting car at the same time and can use the Double Dash feature. Or in Mario Card 8, we saw parts in the tracks that were anti-gravity.
Tutu, of course, did not provide further details on the new change. However, fans are already working on it and speculating on social media. For example, a user believes that in Mario Kart 9 we are going to see the presence of characters from other game series, including Sonic Team Racing. Meanwhile, another user speculates that the next Mario Card game will have gameplay mechanics inspired by Codemasters studio F1 Race Stars.
In addition to the development of Mario Kart 9, Tutu says 2022 will probably be the year that Nintendo brings another set of games to mobile platforms. “Nintendo has not been active in the mobile business since 2019, when it launched the Mario Kart Tour,” he said. “But I think in 2022 we’re going to see a new game from an old Nintendo series on smartphones and tablets once again.”
In 2021, Mario Kart 8 became the best-selling racing game in American history. In fact, in late April of last year, Mario Kart 8 managed to overtake Mario Kart Wii in terms of sales statistics and sold more than 40 million copies in the United States. This statistic is the sum of the sold versions of Mario Card 8 on both Wii U and Nintendo Switch consoles (which of course is called the Mario Card 8 Deluxe Switch version).
