As many of us know the Mario Kart series has been popular since the early 90’s on many Nintendo based consoles for over the past two decades. As time progressed each Mario Kart game had improved in both quality and gameplay. While some people might argue that some of the classic games such as Mario Kart 64, Double Dash, Mario Kart Wii and many others were amazing they must also be anxious about the future in regards to the series. In terms of visual display Mario Kart 8 was fantastic when Nintendo released this game for the Nintendo Wii-U back in 2014. Shortly, after the release of Mario Kart 8 it had sold at least 8 million units worldwide on the Nintendo Wii-U. Despite, the amount of success that Mario Kart 8 had on the Wii-U it still paled in comparison to the Mario Kart game for the original Nintendo Wii which sold over 36 million units worldwide. As of right now Mario Kart Wii is known as the best selling game within its series along with being one of the most successful game titles for the Nintendo Wii.
Even though, Mario Kart 8 did not sell nearly as much as Mario Kart Wii many people still consider the game to be a huge success and wonder if Nintendo can producer a sequel that would exceed their expectations for the Nintendo Switch. While some of the best Mario Kart games were released on home based consoles such as the SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii and the Wii-U Nintendo had released some memorable handheld games such as Mario Kart Super Circuit and Mario Kart 7. Anyone who owned a Nintendo 3DS can understand how impressive Mario Kart 7 following it release five years ago. Since Mario Kart 7 was such a great game it makes us question whether there will be a new game for the New Nintendo 3DS XL or the Nintendo Switch. Some people probably would not mind seeing another Mario Kart game for the New Nintendo 3DS XL but if another Mario Kart title is released for the Nintendo Switch it could definitely contribute in a positive way to the overall sales of the console itself.
