Mario Kart 8 director “not ruling out” Smash Bros.-like expansion of franchise’s roster
Nintendo is all set to give Mario Kart 8 the green light this Friday, May 30. But before you dig in to the Wii U debut of the series, you should check out this Nintendo Life interview with the game’s director, Kosuke Yabuki. Yabuki is proud of his work on Mario Kart 8, but he’s already thinking ahead to Mario Kart 9. And there’s a strong possibility that the racer lineup in the next entry could be expanded to include characters from other Nintendo franchises, Super Smash Bros.-style.
“We’re always considering ways to make the Mario Kart games more appealing, but I don’t think that just increasing the number of characters would make the game better,” Yabuki said. “Of course, I’m not ruling out the possibility of [a Super Smash Bros. approach to the roster] in the future though.”
Obviously, this is far from a done deal. If development on the next Mario Kart game has even begun, it’s likely still in the very early stages. But a Nintendo-wide expansion to the game’s character roster, a “Super Smash Kart” if you will, would be very interesting.
Yup… Very. Interesting.
