Over the past few days, rumors about the next Mario Kart game have been circulating online, after Dr. Serkan Toto of Kantan Games told GamesIndustry.biz that a new game was in active development, and that it would have an evolution. Since then, fans have been speculating about what this development might be. Many believe that the game will offer a menu and locations based on characters outside the Mario family, including characters from the Kirby and Pokemon families. Others are hoping to see the return of karts players from double dash, or a return to each previous Mario Kart track.
Naturally, all this speculation led to the appearance of ‘Mario Kart 9’ on social media! There is no indication that it will be the title of the game, or when the official reveal of the game will occur. Mario Kart 8 It was first released in 2014 on Wii U, before it was ported to the Switch. It’s been almost eight years since fans have had the chance to play an all-new Mario Kart game, outside of casual games like Mario Kart Tour And Mario Kart Live: The Home Arena. After all this time, we may have come to the last lap!

No more rose gold variants.
Since you heard Mario Kart 9 is in development, please don’t make 10k Mario alts. Please add different icons instead of loading the list with the same character in different outfits.

Costumes will be a great new feature.
Everyone here is arguing about Nintendo kart or Mario kart 9 in the meantime I’m here hoping they add costumes for the contestants so that characters like Cat Peach and Metal Mario don’t take up a place in the character selection…looks amazing😩

Banjo and Kazooie have a lot of racing experience!
If Mario Kart 9 ever happens, I’d love to see Squid Sisters as contestants, that would be amazing 😊
It would be so cool if Banjo & Kazooie showed up as guest contestants, highly unlikely, but I can dream! 😄

Now that’s a bold idea!
For all the talk about “I want a Smash-sized list” in Mario Kart 9, what I honestly want is “everyone here” of tracks. Check out Smash Ultimate there. Recreate each track from every previous Mario Kart game.

Give us a Pokemon Kart, please.
It’d be better if Mario Kart had 9 Pokemon

Perhaps this man will be disappointed.
Mario Kart 9’s (pretend that the leak is true) A better new ‘evolution’ allegedly ‘Mario Kart 9’ is just the name of the project they are introducing to the undisclosed F-Zero game. # revivero #never give up # Mario Kart 9 #fzero
