Who else thinks there should be a SSB-Kart game?

Postby EpicWolfOfDarkness » 04.09.14 3:56pm

Think about it: a Mario Kart-esque game featuring characters from SSB. That would be so awesome. :awesome:

Both of those series are really popular, so I think it would work out well for Nintendo. :)

What do you guys think?

Shhh youll give nintendo ideas.

Other than characters how would this differ from the battling kart game that is already established?

A good idea but unfortunately will never come to be. The minute such a product is revealed by Nintendo Mario Kart will lose its relevance immediately. I don't think Ninty want to take that chance, so they'll probably just going to stick with Mario Kart and Smash Bros respectively.

I've talked about the idea with friends, once even made a list of what we'd think each character would use as, or in place of a kart.

Some ideas..

Toon Link: Moterized King of red Lions

Samus: a miniture, hovering gunship that is commically to small for her (she sits with her knees up to her head), or just uses the Speed booster.

Star Fox Characters: Miniture Arwing, Landmaster or Great Fox Bike.

Kirby Characters: Vehicles from Kirby's Air Ride.

Sonic: Running, Car, or.. the hoverboard thingie they got in one racing game.

Link/Fire Emblem Characters: Horses?

Falcon: Mini Blue Falcon

Pokemon: Another Pokemon.



All I can remember off the top of my head.

I think this will end up like the Sonic/Kirby racing games I don't care to Google right now and the Mortal Kombat racing game titled 'Motor Kombat' in that only 10 people still remember it exists and nobody cares about it anymore. What MK did right, was make it an extra in Mortal Kombat Armageddon in a similar manner to how Metroid was put in both Metroid Zero Mission and Metroid Prime. I'd love to gun things down as Samus!Kart but the idea is a fusion of a fusion which generally leads to bad game design or it getting compared to the superior game (being Mario Kart) in the example of the Super Smash Bros. series itself and how Super Playstation Bros. tried a similar concept and crashed because people would rather play the superior option. Unless it had its own unique fun spin that drew in everyone, nobody would play it for more than a week if they even bother getting it at all.

Click for their theme song.


Proceed with whatever you were doing.


(Who said stage hazards and bosses can't participate in the racing too? :umad:)

SWEET BABY MARIO


SHIT GOT REAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL!


EDIT:

Mario Kart 8 Pack 1 - Released: November 2014

Pack 1 includes:

3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
4 Vehicles
8 Courses

Mario Kart 8 Pack 2 - Released: May 2015

Pack 2 includes:

3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
4 Vehicles
8 Courses




Annoyed that the first pack is ANOTHER mario and peach, but Link's still in it, so that's cool.
I just wonder how much these packs cost.

Well, the Nintendo UK store has them listed at £7.00 each, which is presently $11.60 USD, so I'd say a $10 USD final price seems 'bout right. Factor that into your regional equivalent.

I'd also like to say that HELL YES! It's about damn time Nintendo recognized the cross-franchise potential of their series outside of Smash brothers!

RIP F-Zero. :'(
EDIT: Link is hype, but Tanooki Mario? Cat Peach? Did they not learn anything? :facepalm:

I'm going to hold out this and wait for actual footage of the tracks to see if their worth getting. There's a very slim chance I'll actually buy it (like most DLC), but we'll see.

I wouldn't count a standalone F-Zero title out just yet. Nintendo should be smart enough to realize that they're both entirely different games appealing to very different audiences. Plus, Nintendo's been partnering like mad, so who's to say they won't license the franchise out? I bet SEGA'd be up for another whack at it.

Huh, I didn't even realize the F-Zero (probably Mute City) track. Nintendo pls, why you do this to me.

You are correct, this may spell good for some other Nintendo franchises. Sega/Nintendo on F-Zero would be amazing.

I wonder if Samus will ever be included in one of the DLC packs.

Currently no.
Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link, Villager, Isabelle, and Dry Bowser are the only ones.

But that's just for now. I'm pretty sure if these sell well enough they'll make more.

I just realized; stuff like this is what Amiibos are going to be used for.
