Mario Kart X Will Release In 2025.
Now that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Booster Course Pass has finally come to an end, in spectacular fashion I might add, now the question being asked is "Well, what's next?"
Well, I finally have some more insight on that. The tenth (no, not ninth) installment of the Mario Kart series will release in 2025, which will be Switch 2's second year on the market. The intention is to release the title sometime before the system's second holiday on the market.
The title is being developed primarily by Nintendo EPD Production Group 9, with Bandai Namco Studios once again co-developing.
Additionally, Nintendo are sparring absolutely no expense with this game. This is apparently one of the most expensive games Nintendo has ever put into production. The next 3D Mario title is said to be "absolutely dropping" and this apparently looks even better. The game's visual fidelity is said to be a very high priority for them, meaning the game is gonna look good, damn good.
2025 is going to be a massive year for the Mario franchise in general. Nintendo are making extensive plans for the franchise's 40th anniversary in all sectors, so expect a lot of plumber goodness not just next year, but even more the year after. MKX will be one of the main celebratory titles of the anniversary.
That said, this is still two years away, so don't expect to hear about anything for quite awhile. Once again, next year, the focus will be on the launch of the system alongside that new 3D Mario. Mario Kart will come in due time, friends.
