Rumors have been circulating for quite some time that Nintendo is already working on a new console. Fans have been excited to see what the company has in store for its highly anticipated Switch’s successor. Nintendo Switch has been a massive commercial success for the company because of its amazing game library with stellar titles. One of the best ways to replicate its success would be with the release of the next big game, the highly anticipated Mario Kart 9.

The Mario Kart franchise is one of the most popular series in Nintendo’s history, however, it has been more than a decade ever since the last mainline Mario Kart title was released. Thus, fans eagerly await the latest installment. Rumors have suggested that Mario Kart 9 is already in development, and there is a strong chance that it could lead Nintendo’s highly anticipated next console.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the latest iteration of the Mario Kart franchise, was a massive commercial success on the Nintendo Switch. Despite being a deluxe version of its Wii U prequel, it became the definitive Mario Kart experience since it featured all post-launch DLC from the original and fixed some of its longstanding issues. It currently holds the position of being the best-selling Nintendo Switch game of all time. Thus, Mario Kart franchise’s enduring popularity has been easy to see. The genre-defining game is a must-have for any Nintendo Switch owner, and its popularity remains with Nintendo Switch releases like Mario Kart Tour and Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit.

If Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s Booster Course Pass has taught us anything, it is that the Mario Kart brand is always growing stronger over the years, and it is here to stay. Since Mario Kart 8 was able to become the best-selling Wii U title, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was able to lead the Nintendo Switch era, it is safe to say that the long-awaited Mario Kart 9 will likely exceed the same success, especially if Nintendo’s Switch successor is released.

The community has been waiting for a new Mario Kart title to hit the shelves for almost a decade, and the wait will only add more excitement to its release. When the new console arrives, it will give companies the opportunity to come up with new, innovative ways to improve the Mario Kart franchise. If the studio ensures that Mario Kart 9 is as wild and thrilling as the previous games, then the fan base will probably flock to it.
