A Possible Release Date Window For The Next MARIO KART Game Has Been Revealed

We know that Mario Kart is coming to the Nintendo Switch, but when exactly will it be released? Well, some new details have surfaced which offer up an idea of when we should expect to see it hit the new platform.

According to Videogamer, the next Mario Kart game will be released within the first THREE MONTHS of the Nintendo Switch's launch. Unfortunately, rather than being a ninth instalment of the franchise, it will actually be an updated version of the Wii U's Mario Kart 8 containing all of the DLC content released for that title. This is still obviously just a rumour for now, but the news is disappointing. 

However, it's not all bad as the site goes on to mention that this version of the game will contain quite a lot of exclusive content which will only be for the Switch. That means more tracks, new characters, and even an updated Battle Mode. The latter received a lot of criticism, so Nintendo reworking it is definitely a relief, though there's no denying that a Mario Kart 9 would have still been more exciting! 

More details about the Switch will be released in January, so for now, stay tuned for updates.
