Mario Kart 9 with new twist in 2022
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was re-released for Switch in 2017, and remains the last major instalment in the venerable series. Sure, Mario Kart Tour hit mobile in 2019, and Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit brought augmented reality to kart racing, but it has been a long time since an all-new Mario Kart.
Kantan Games' Dr. Serkan Toto and a number of other industry analysts have offered their predictions for 2022, and Toto believes that Mario Kart 9 is in active development and “comes with a new twist”.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was enhanced for Switch
- Included all DLC, tweaks, and 1080p graphics
- Mario Kart Tour received a mixed reception from players
More mobile: Toto would not be surprised if Nintendo starts unveiling Mario Kart 9 this year, and he also believes Nintendo is working to introduce another major franchise to mobile.
Long wait: The new Mario Kart has allegedly been in development for three years, and might come out this year. It has been over half a decade since the original Mario Kart 8 launched for Wii U in 2014.
