Mario Kart 8which is a game released for the first time ten years ago On Wii U, it still hasn’t been done. The 2017 Switch version of the game is currently in the midst of a series of downloadable content that not only brings new courses to the game but also new drivers.
We welcomed Perdue (along with A Yoshi’s Island turn) In the latest update, released today, but this new screenshot taken after the install shows that there is still room for five more:
Five more! Five mysterious characters in Nintendo’s popular first-party game! You know what that means, everyone. This means that the time has come speculation.
While the series previously liked to keep things in the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario Kart 8 Updates slowly introduced characters from other Nintendo franchises, starting with zelda to Splatoon. The meaning of these five characters, in fact Smash Bros. Fashion comes from Anywhere.

Maybe it will be someone new, but to be expected. Samus is an obvious choice here, especially since a vehicle based on his ship would be an obvious combination (and a MetroidA themed course that will also kick ass).
Maybe it will be different than an existing character. There are many Marios programs here… is there room for a second link? a Wind Wicker Link maybe? If that’s good enough for Super Smash Bros. UltimateWell, it’s good enough Mario Kart 8.
However, it could be someone else. Nintendo has a long history, after all. It is curious that the characters from F-zeroNintendo’s series about racing cars is not featured here Mario Kart 8, a Nintendo game about car racing. Captain Falcon will go right in, especially since he’s already there F-zero Of course (and the vehicle!) in the game.
Maybe it’s time for some Pikmin? punch out? He is arms Too fuzzy a reference in the year 2023? Maybe the space is left for movie versions of some famous people Mario Characters?
Maybe you should take charge now. Speculation regarding Nintendo is hard work.
to update: This may help narrow it down. “Two upcoming waves of DLC are still in the future, featuring more courses and returning characters from the Mario Kart series,” Nintendo says in a press release accompanying the downloadable content today.
The Return of Characters sure kills some of the wild suggestions above! And leaves us with possibilities like Petey Piranha and … Wiggler?
