The Mario Kart series has not seen any new life in recent memory. While the sales of the Nintendo Switch have been on the rise, there has not been anything new for the fans since Mario Kart 8. Recently, a source reported something on twitter about a new Mario Kart game.
The source in question is a person by the name of Sabi who claims to be an insider to Nintendo’s inner circle. Sabi has had a hand in leaking other news before. This rumor, though unproven, might just be what fans were looking for.
As suggested by Sabi, Nintendo is all set for the release of a new game this year on the Nintendo Switch. This game will heavily feature, ‘tires’, which led many to believe that it will be a new Mario Kart game.
It does align with the fact that it is about time that Nintendo did something in Mario Kart franchise. After the poor reception of Mario Kart: Tour, a new game would definitely be a breath of fresh air for the fans.
The rumor in question could hold some validity considering the fact that Sabi was the one who also leaked rumors about Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. The insider claimed that Breath of the Wild 2’s release date would be delayed due to the game taking too much time to develop. Though the rumor could also mean that Nintendo might announce a release date for Speedway racing.
A new Mario Kart game would certainly fill the void that Breath of Wild 2’s delay would leave behind. Sabi is well known for the leaks that have proven to be legitimate. Keep in mind that there is no official confirmation from Nintendo. Either way, fans should keep their eyes open for upcoming announcements.
