Hey all, just came across the 2012 Wii U announcement (link to article below). As of now, according to the article Mario Kart as not been announced as a game option. As stated in the article:
"For the Wii U, Nintendo announced FIFA 12, Ninja Gaiden 3, Tekken, Darksiders II, Dirt, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Ghost Recon Online, Metro Last Light, and Batman: Arkham City."
I figure and certainly hope that Mario Kart will be refreshed for the new system. Quite frankly, it is the only game I play and I would really like to continue the FC friendships I've established the last few years here on any new version of Mario Kart and would really like it if the number of friends could be expended at least x 4.
Anyway, anyone read anything about a Mario Kart refresh for Wii U? Perhaps it is way to early to know.
I think that 2013 or 2014 is a fair estimation of when the next MK will be released. The series usually does not appear at launch and I 'm not too hungry for another home console MK, since we still play the awesome MKW.
I believe they are releasing a new mario kart for the 3DS this year, if you are in to handhelds. I still haven't decided if I want to get one of those yet or not, but the game lineup that was released is pretty tempting.
As for the Wii U, I'm sure it will be at least a few years before Mario Kart is released on it, but I will definitely be looking to add familiar faces when that comes out.
