Nintendo wants to develop Mario Kart Wii U

Posted By | On 10th, Nov. 2011

It’s pretty obvious that Nintendo will develop a Mario Kart game with their upcoming home console, the Wii U, but having had no official information on it yet makes this news pretty interesting.

Mario Kart producer Hideki Konno said in an interview with gaming mag Nintendo Power that he’s interesting in developing a game from the series for the upcoming home console. “I can’t get into the specifics, but I do want to create a new and enjoyable Mario Kart that uses the unique functions of the Wii U,” he said. “Anything beyond that I have to keep secret. Please bear with me for now!”

When asked if the Mario Kart series will ever include characters from Nintendo series other than Mario, he said: “We’ve never seriously considered that.”

He was also asked to confirm what Retro’s involvement in Mario Kart 7’s development exactly was, to which he replied by saying: “Knowing that Retro Studios had a strong track record and a long history of creating quality products with Nintendo, I asked them to collaborate with us on aspects like course and character design. The course designers and artists at both EAD and Retro Studios worked closely together to create what I consider to be very prolific and high-quality work.”

Mario Kart 7 releases on the 3DS in December. Stay tuned for more info.
