Maro Kart 9 Could Cross the Finish Line in 2022
In a GamesIndustry.biz article about gaming predictions for 2022, Toto said the following: “I am aware Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still selling very well on the Nintendo Switch, but Mario Kart 9 is in active development (and comes with a new twist) and Nintendo could tease it this year.”

Double Dash had two drivers for each kart as well as Mario Kart Wii featured motion controls, and Mario Kart 8 featured the anti-gravity sections of course tracks.
Toto further went on to say that they believe a brand new mobile game may be in the pipeline from Nintendo that is based on one of their IPs that they have established.
The last mobile game released by the company included Mario Kart Tour in 2019.
