Mario Kart 9 Release Date: Latest news and rumours
M Mario Kart 9 will be the next instalment in the Mario Kart Series. This will be the first exclusive Mario Kart Switch game. It’s also the first Mario Kart-specific game for Switch. It’ll be the 16th instalment in the overall series and the tenth in the main series. We already know a lot about the game, according to rumours and leaks. These rumours are not to be taken lightly.
There are new features that make Mario Kart games stand out from the rest. Mario Kart 9 is no different.
New mechanics in Mario Kart 9
We know of two new mechanics in this game.
- Water Ski Mechanic allows skiers to race on water surfaces or other liquids. We will likely see water-based tracks.
- Time Flow Mechanism: This mechanic allows racers to slow down the time and objects around them, making navigation and movement simpler. You can also dodge objects thrown at you, narrowing the gap between obstacles and items.
It will be compatible with Amiibos, just like Mario Kart 8
Mario Kart 9 release date
Mario Kart 9 is believed to be coming to Switch at the end of 2021. Despite this, it’s still mid-November, and we have not yet heard anything concrete. I am now unsure if we will see a 2021 release.
