Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 is a hugely successful game, first coming to the Wii U on May 29, 2014, and to the Nintendo Switch on April 28, 2017. Although it has been released for quite some time, it has been selling well, and according to statistical sales data, even in 2021 it was the best-selling game in the UK, beating FIFA 22. So far, Mario Kart 8 has sold more than 8 million copies on the Wii U and 37 million copies on the Nintendo Switch.

Perhaps “Mario Kart 8” was so successful that Nintendo did not plan to develop a sequel for a long time, and players also believed that there would not necessarily be a new game in the series in a short period of time. However, according to Gamesindustry, Nintendo is actively developing Mario Kart 9, and the game will have new changes, and may disclose relevant information within this year.

In addition, Nintendo may also take action on mobile platforms, launching new games in 2022. Since 2019’s Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo has been silent on mobile platforms for a long time. In the eyes of many people, it is not that Nintendo does not have enough development strength, and to a large extent it ignores the mobile game market.

Nintendo also has a long-awaited heavyweight for many game fans in 2022, which is “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2”, which may be one of the most anticipated games Nintendo has ever seen. The previous game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, was a huge success after launch, winning TGA Game of the Year, Best Game Design, and Best Action-Adventure Game.
