Nintendo should really drop Mario Kart as a series...

...and start making 'Nintendo Kart' instead. I don't really see any reason why it should just be Mario.

This has become apparent to me while playing Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

Rather good idea, although it's a misleading title. You'll mostly attract people who hate Mario Kart and want an excuse to bash it or rabid fans who will defend the usability of the Blooper against CPUs. If you wanted moderates, you should have suggested changing it to a Nintendo-wide franchise in the title.

Nothing against the idea; it's a great idea.

Gen VI in 2013? I'll believe that when Iris becomes Champion!
Official Pokemon #678 of the Pokemon X boards. What?

The Mario name sells the game.

Agreed. They're really grasping for characters now - Funky Kong, generic female Toad, generic enemies, etc... and the 3DS one is even worse. A random character from Mario Galaxy called Honey Queen is an unlockable racer...why.

I have to agree, especially if it means getting some new items from the other series as well. And courses from places like Hyrule or Planet Zebes would be awesome.

Then it just sounds odd.

Mario Kart is fine, Nintendo karting or something along those lines would make more sense though.

I think they generally need to get more ambitious with it too. Playing the Skies of Arcadia track on Sonic & All-Stars in which the big battle plays out around you, transforming the track as you go along, is pretty awesome - it puts Mario Kart to shame.
