In the latest issue of Nintendo Power (Feb 2006,) they interview Mario Kart producer Hideki Konno. Mr. Konno notes that it would only be the logical step for Mario Kart to appear on the Revolution, and my logic would suggest it would be extremely fun.
Nintendo Power: What do you like most about the Revolution controller?
Hideki 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.
