Het was natuurlijk te verwachten. Mario Kart is op elke Nintendo console verschenen sinds de SNES. De game staat altijd garant voor succes en spelplezier.In een interview met Nintendo Power liet Hideko Konno, de man achter Mario Kart, al doorschemeren dat er een Mario Kart op de Revolution zal verschijnen. OOk geeft hij even zijn mening over de controller voor Nintendo's nieuwste console.

NP: What do you like most about the Revolution controller? Konno: We're doing a lot of experiments right now with the Revolution controller and obviously with the direct pointing device (DPD) and its ability to track movement and distance. You know, that's huge, because that's a brand-new thing that we've never seen before in any controller. Trying to envision all the different things we could do with that motion sensor, that DPD, is a little mind-boggling. NP: Where do you think the Mario Kart series can go from here? Konno: As you know, Mario Kart has appeared on all of Nintendo's platforms so far, and I think it's done its job on the DS, or at least I hope it will with what's new. So the next logical step, of course, is the Revolution. Really what we hope to do is continue to bring new and creative things to the franchise that appeal not only to our established user base, but also bring new people into the game.
