Nintendo should have pushed harder to release mario kart in december.

Releasing in march makes no sense at all.

Eh. This is best. MK7 was rushed a bit, and I think it did itself a disservice as a result.

It does when you're trying to stagger your releases.

Don't want to blow your load all at once, especially before the dreaded spring/summer drought period.

Besides, SM3DW will likely be enough to entice the numbers Nintendo wants to see for the holidays and beyond.

I just hope MK8 will have more to offer than 7. Single-player missions were sorely missed.

Agreed, I would have rushed it out to be near the 3D Mario coming in December. Those two, along with a price cut, would be the perfect setup to repeat the 3DS comeback.

I can't begin to understand the logic behind taking their time and making the game better instead of going for more profits, but I won't complain, I accept their decision.
I'm not a gamer, I'm a Nintendrone. Here's proof I live to serve Nintendo:

I don't get why you guys assume I meant a rushed game. I didn't. They should have started development earlier, or put more people on it, whatever. Mario kart in the holiday season would move wii Us like crazy.

But still where did you get March? They said Spring, which is roughly Q2, so most likely April -June.
Gentlemen, we tnodah now!

I agree with TC. Also the game looks very far along, IMO Nintendo could be intentionally holding it back, which is a mistake.

I don't think my wallet could have handled another $60 game. There's already 4 Wii U games I want between october and decmember.
