Why doesn't Nintendo drop Mario Kart in favor of Nintendo Kart?

You know, like Smash Bros.?

I love Mario Kart but I would love to see the awesome game with other Nintendo characters. I really don't like any of the Mario characters when I play Mario Kart. I mean, Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Ghost, Random Turtle #20983, Baby Bowser, Birdo, Skelleton Turtle, etc. are all stupid. Nintendo should put real characters not baby versions and common enemies.

That's always been my major complaint. Imagine playing as say Samus! She can have her own unique special just like every character would.

Now that would be a blast even though I love Mario Kart Wii! (hated Mario Kart DS and Double Dash)

Because Captain Falcon and Fox would be much better drivers than the others, giving an unfair advantage.

Most likely because "Mario Kart" was established as a franchise long ago and now has the brand recognition.

Because Samus, Fox, and Captain Falcon refuse to ride carts and a gunship, arwing, and racecar zooming at 400mph would be really broken.

You see, unlike SSB, most Nintendo characters aren't really fitting for a kart racing game. You aren't going to see Samus and Link driving small, little karts. Mario Kart is really only appropriate for Mario and Donkey Kong characters.
