Topic: The Possibility of more then one Smash or Kart on Switch

I think there is a very real possibility of getting both ports of the Wii U games and new installments on the Switch. What leads me to believe this is the fact that Nintendo seems bent on porting as many Wii U games as possible in the future and the fact that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was released and a half after the Switch came out. No matter what you say, a Mario Kart never came out so early in the console's life. It's not much but it's enough to convince me of the possibility. I personally think releasing both a port and a new game would be a great idea to double profits and give players something old and new. What do you guys think?

It would be ok. They should wait at least a couple of years of course but since Mario Kart 8 was ported so early it could be possible.

I expect Mario Kart 9 to be released on the Switch, but not before 2020

What would be the point of a new Smash? A complete edition of the last game with some additional content (perhaps a single player campaign) is all it needs, really. Nintendo will definitely not release two Smash games on a single console. I'm sure Mario Kart 9 is in development, but it probably won't be out for another couple of years.

I do think we will get a Mario Kart 9, always have, but when it releases for the Switch (either current or future version of the system) will be determined by whether Mario Kart 8 gets any more DLC, which right now Nintendo are kinda on the fence about, and how much life the sales for the game will have going forward. The more legs it has the longer we will have to wait for the next installment, but there is certainly a small team already working on the pre-development for the next game most definitely.

Switch will get a new Smash, but not anytime soon.

@sillygostly Yeah - they could tweak the balance a little then add in Splatoon, ARMS, Snipperclips, Mario with Cappy ability, Ice Climbers and Waluigi and people would be thrilled. I'd bet on a revamped and reworked AMAZING Mario Party before I'd expect another Kart though.

@sillygostly There's a lot of things that could be explored in a new Smash. New mechanics, a proper single player mode, hazardless stages, tag team mode, more online functions, the list goes on. There's a lot more to Smash Bros then just the number of characters. It seems inevitable that the series is going have to go the Street Fighter IV/ Guilty Gear Xrd new entry at some point. Why not both that AND a re-release of the old game so players won't be too dissapointed if a feature or character they liked was cut.

Why is it that all Smash games since Melee have such terrible soundtracks?!

I would prefer Sakurai to make something else than Smash. He's a talented game designer. I wouldn't mind a port of the last Smash. It's the perfect Smash to me. Only way to improve it would be to inject more money in it to put more CGI cinematics but it doesn't need more developers work imo.

@bitleman I think the best idea would be to get a new director for the next Smash game. I think we're at the point where some new blood is what the series needs most.

I don't think we'll get a new Mario Kart this gen. The last thing Nintendo wants is to fragment the user base, specially when you finally got all players on the same playing field.

At this point, maybe we'll get a new Smash or a modified version but with the same engine.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I think a Mario Kart 9 on Switch is pretty likely.

Of course 2017 Nintendo won't leave that money on the table. However, they have to wait a year or two to let 8D's legacy sales play out before releasing 9 at the height of the Switch's popularity.

I think Smash needs new physics personally, that's why I want a new one. They should make a brand new game with maybe not as many characters, but one where every one feels more responsive and less floaty when jumping.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

I'd bet my house on Smash being a DX version of the Wii U game, maybe with added stages from the 3DS, and possibly some new characters (inklings seem a safe bet)
As for MK9, I honestly don't know what Nintendo can do with it that they can't achieve through DLC for MK8DX. Remember when they teased Kalimari Desset? Makes me think that they had more Cups ready but held off for Switch and a decent install base!

I really don't think we'll see a new Kart or Smash this gen. I think a Smash 4 port next year is inevitable and there will be probably be Kart DLC too. I'll be happy with no new Kart if it means we get something like F-Zero or perhaps a different style of racing game where they can experiment more,something like Donkey Kong Racing. Smash I enjoy but I'm not a huge fan. A deluxe port with improved online will be more than enough for me.

There is already a Mario Kart on the Switch, I rather see a new F-Zero instead.

@Snaplocket If it happens you will regret Sakurai. This guy is the real deal. One of the few big game designer who dedicates his entire life to videogames, including his free time. I don't know how much time he spent beta testing the Smash games but it can probably be counted in thousand hours considering he can play the game with each of his hand on one controller.

Ports and DLC are the way forward. MK9 and Smash 5 don't need to exist until the next generation of consoles at the earliest.
