  1. Nintendo is quiet too quiet. They got a plan. Something in their R&D kept from spies and rumors so rivalscwont copy them.

    But how is Nintendo going to do it by keeping 3rd party support yet still support 50 million install base at the same time? How will they do it? The Switch Pro would have to be more expensive. But at the same time people are buying Switch and Switch Mini. But no telling no one what the strategy is when those powerful consoles come out is great because Sony wont know. Sony is good at letting others go first do they can make corrections before they unveil their console. Nintendo is probably waiting for Sony to unveil their PS5 first.

  2. Either they’ve been making Mario Kart 9 all this time, or they are still complete fools to have not done DLC for 8 Deluxe. If that many people (myself included) bought the game, imagine how many of them would also spring for any additional content.

    1. They’re very much due a brand new Mario Kart game. They’ve historically released one about every 3 years. After Mario Kart 8, it took 3 years for them to rerelease it on the Switch, and now it’s been almost 3 years since then. So it really has been 6 years since MK8 came out. I’m hoping that Mario Kart Tour isn’t interfering with the mainline games.

    2. DLC is def the way to go but the game is now too old provided that it’s a port and stuff. Why patch an old thing with additional content that may not run well rather than release MK9 and have the DLC phased out over two years like Ultimate.

  3. This is what I like to see!!! Yall know this ain’t it right? They got something in their R&D they dont want to show yet. I think they have a solution to the Xbox series X and PS5 to not affect their hardware and software sells.

    They up to something. I bet Nintendo executives been having tons of R&D meetings and traveling from Japan to Europe to America .

    I know they have a plan in order to keep 3rd party intrested also.

    But no one in Nintendo is saying nothing not a bloody thing.
