The website GamesIndustry regularly asks analysts and industry experts about their predictions for the new year around the turn of the year. The point is, analysts need to know. GamesIndustry is therefore also putting its statements of the previous year to the test.
Dr. Serkan Toto (Kantan Games) predictions have largely come true. It remains to be seen whether his predictions for 2022 will do the same. They get special attention thanks to Mario Kart 9.
That Nintendo would announce a new Mario Kart so soon should actually be considered unlikely. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe still sells so well that you could just torpedo yourself with it.
Dr. Toto on the other hand has at least one teaser Mario Kart 9 probably this year. Because: “Mario Kart 9 is in full development and comes with a new twist,” says Toto. And it’s not worded like that’s a guess. Dr. Toto with introductions like “very likely to see”, “I think we’ll see” or something like that.
Incidentally, these other predictions also include “a newly established IP” from Nintendo on mobile devices. The last publication on this was in 2019 with Mario Kart Tour. “I think,” says Dr. Toto — unlike Mario Kart 9.
Will we see Mario Kart 9 on Switch again? What do you mean?
