  1. Nintendo, for the love of Mother Mila, just make DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe already! You’ve literally made DLC for 4 of the games in the top 5 and yet you’ve ignored the best selling game on the system.
    Just do it, we can wait till the next system for a new Mario Kart.

    1. No, we can’t lmao. Mario Kart 8 has spanned almost two entire generations of gaming now, you REALLY want to delay it even further? The game already got it’s DLC almost half a decade ago.
      It’s time for something new.

      1. No more Mario Karts. Make Nintendo Kart. They already started with MK8 DLC and using other Nintendo characters is better than Baby Pink Gold Donkey Kong Jr.

          1. See the thing is; The NS is now in it’s final phase with at most 3 years and that’s likely being too generous.
            If we were in the beginning of the NS’s lifespan I would 100% agree that Mario Kart 9 should happen but considering it’s almost been 5 years since the system dropped, it’s better they just save it until the next system.
            As for in the meantime; May as well scratch that itch and just build on MK8D. Another thing to consider is if they make a Mario Kart 9 now, it will be at the ending point of the NS’s lifespan so when the next system drops, we’d be sitting on our butts for 2-3 years just waiting for them to release a new Mario Kart. Do you guys really want a rerun of what happened with the Wii U? Cause I sure as heck do not, still blows my mind that it took 1 and half years for them to release Mario Kart 8 after the system dropped when in reality it should have been 6 months, tops.
