      Mario Kart is financially successful and soulful as is. No need to fix what isn't broken unless you're an investor and not a true fan.

        Is Mario Kart their most successful internally created spinoff? I never saw golf or soccer sell as much as this

          Yes with 175.29 million which is second place in comparison to the mainline franchise.

            Obviously the Mario name holds weight but do you think people buy it because it’s a racing game? I’ve never seen Kart games or racing games pull these numbers. If PC or PS had their own good racer, it’ll never achieve half of its success

              It's really just both. Not only is Mario Kart the most mainstream-friendly Mario spinoff to get into but the brand itself is seen as an actual family member to many people to where it even gets passed down to the children of its fans. Plus, Mario Kart is more popular than ever right now simply because of its easy accessibility in being on the Switch, a console that parents buy multiple of.

      You can keep the Mario branding and still include other characters. Mario Kart X (cross) makes the most sense.

    There's literally nowhere else for the series to go. Crossover autism is all it has left. It and smash will go full fortnite because spergs want to see peter griffin racing goku while keanu reeves blasts a big chungus to pass them.

                Gimmicks and retreads. They can bring back double dash's two characters per kart and it's old enough that people will think it's fresh.

            It's hilarious how 8 never uses its rainbow road for promotion shots. It's always N64. Hope they never do the rainbow space station shit ever again since.

                What I'm asking for is for them not to waste time on another broken unbalanced exploitative piece of shit and stick with the unbalanced exploitative piece of shit they already have a solid foundation with. Are you dumb or just intentionally ignoring that? Same shit with platoon, 2 and 3 had no reason to exist outside of engine changes. Now 3 is a perfect foundation amd needs to be left the frick alone

    The non-Mario characters in Mario Kart 8 are plenty, maybe they could add Captain Falcon and Samus, but that's it. What Mario Kart really needs is more characters from the Wario games and Mario RPGs like Captain Syrup and Fawful.

      yeah there's still loads of mario series reps they can put in. Heck tour alone has a good bit. We're nowhere near the bottom of the barrel for character reps.

      Chargin Chuck
      Monty Mole
      Hammer/Fire/Boomerand/Ice Bros
      Dixie
      Poochie
      Captain Toad
      King Bob-omb
      Nabbit

    Ganker is the minority and like 99% of people fricking love crossovers. So expect considerably more in MK9/10/however they decide to count it.

    People want to piggyback F-listers onto the biggest video game character of all time, it's basically rostergays that treat Smash Bros as a magical franchise hospital but now in a racing game and tied to Mario.
    Zelda, Splatoon and Animal Crossing at least past muster because those are the other big franchises. They have nothing to prove to associate with Mario.

    Because Mario doesn't have enough characters and any attempt to expand the roster as it is only produces more barrel scraping garbage. Nobody wants to play Koopa Troopa, Toad, babies, metals, Koopalings.

    F-Zero should be the franchise to add more characters from outside itself, like it did with James McCloud.
