May 30th marks seven years since Mario Kart 8 released on Nintendo Wii U. While the game performed well on the console, it wouldn’t become a massive success until a few years later when it was ported to Nintendo Switch as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Unfortunately, the game’s continued success has seemingly meant that Nintendo is in no hurry to make a new entry in the series. There have been rumors about a ninth Mario Kart game in development, but that isn’t enough for fans that have been waiting seven years for a wholly new Mario Kart. In honor of the game’s anniversary, many took to Twitter to ask Nintendo for a new entry in the beloved racing franchise.

Some are skeptical it’ll happen.
Would I absolutely love if Mario Kart 9 happened?
Do I think it’ll happen? No!
Although, people thought the same about Splatoon 3. We thought Splatoon was a one game per console deal, so if Splatoon 3 is on Switch, maybe MK9 could be too…

None of us did!
I never realized that Nintendo named it Mario Kart 8 because it would be 8 years before they would release another one
