Rumor: One rumored Wii U port for Switch is not actually a port, Mario Kart Switch features 16 new tracks

Posted on January 12, 2017 by in News

The Switch event is only hours away, but there’s still room for more rumors. Emily Rogers previously reported on some of the upcoming content for Mario Kart on Switch, and she is now stating that the Mario Kart 8 port will feature at least 16 new tracks. She also states that one of the Switch titles that was rumored to be a Wii U port is actually not a port, though she does not clarify which.

      Why?

      • MagcargoMan

        Probably because we still have sites post rumours from people who have been discredited before.

        • Roto Prime

          We do we for the lulz…

  • Mr Ninty

    The other one will be Splatoon i quess, but we will see.
    I want to buy the Mario kart 8 port if its unique enough, but new games first.

  • Roto Prime

    This is lining up perfectly with that 4chan leak….Bomberman anyone?!

    • What?!?! Bomberman? Are you serious?

      • Roto Prime

        Yah, the leaker said he was setting up the Switch test event thingy in EU…..if true OMG!! BOMBERMAN IS BACK, i will cry ;____;

        • Wow. I will lose. my. mind.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          Like you even need to ask what my opinion is on such a glorious rumor. I certainly hope it’s true.

          • Vigilante_blade

            I’d want 8 player mode. It would be glorious.

          • Roto Prime

            Best Bomber Man was the DS one, with the two screens and download play and so many maps! Konami why!!!

  • I hope we get a new rumor a half hour before the event.

    • Bradley

      two minutes before

  • γ‚­γƒ­

    At this rate we’ll get rumors during the live presentation itself. xD

    • ForeVision

      It will give me a reason to laugh, since they’re wasting their time to make that rumor and missing the presentation.

  • Folks. Don’t believe any RUMOR today…….like seriously just wait 17 hours.

    • ben

      Looking at splatoon that was no port. the people who said it was have probably not played that much Splatoon.. Even the smallest fragment revealed too many changes.

      • hi v3.0

        Graphics wise its still the same which is probably why some thinks it’s port with new features

        • SM

          No even the Graphics were improved, look at the Inklings design

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            There was someone on GAF who also compared the tree model detail in the maps. The maps themselves and the background foliage have increased detail. This Splatoon game is either no port or it’s a very highly advanced one.

        • The graphics are much more refined….hell the damn trees are even more detailed lol

  • ben

    Splatoon is probably not a port.. come on how hard would it have been for them to advance what they learned?

  • awng781

    Spla2oon!…

    • hi v3.0

      Yessss

    • SpectralDynamite

      Splat-two-oon?

      • awng781

        lol I see…
        “Spla2oon” looks better as a title on the boxart than “Spla2n.”
        Making the title of a game that cryptic isn’t going to do any favors.

        • SpectralDynamite

          “Splatoon 2” beats both. Keep it simple.

  • 18 more hours…18 more hours…18 more hours…

  • Jack Red

    On a slightly unrelated note. Is anyone watching Etika’s stream?

    • hi v3.0

      I will tonight….maybe
      JOYCONBOYZ

    • Blanco8x8

      I’ll wait until he post his reactions on YouTube.

    • MagcargoMan

      No, I’m not a memer.

      • Jack Red

        It had nothing to do with memes. The dude had alot of his viewers scared.

        • MagcargoMan

          Scared?

          • Jack Red

            He had did a thing where everytime he got a donation, he’d take a shot. He got drunk and was going to take his bike to a 7-11 to get a sandwich, but ended up not doing it, but passed out and no one knew where he was at, he didn’t even respond to his girlfriend’s phone calls.

          • MagcargoMan

            Wow. But what does this have to do with me saying Etika’s basically a memer?

    • JasonBall

      No, I’m not black.

      • Jack Red

        You don’t have to be black to watch his videos.

  • bugman83

    Nintendo can do the something that MS does with Forza. Just release the same game with little updates every year.

    • MagcargoMan

  • Stuart

    To be clear, she said in the past that the ports were going to be Mario Kart 8, Splatoon, Mario Maker and Smash 4. Of course, that sounds to me more a “back off” that soon before the presentation,like that “Zelda delayed-wait no lol” of Laura Kate. But anyway,just a few hours left is not even worth it discussing that so much right now.

  • Canyarion

    I’ve been saying this since the beginning: Make it Mario Kart ∞ Infinite. Turn it into a game platform, with constant updates and DLC.

    It’s perfect because they could turn the 8 from the logo on its side and suddenly it’s a ∞. (And I’ve been talking about this long before that recent rumor had the same idea. :))

    • Kenshin0011

      Yo! That’s an amazing idea!!!

  • Tlink7

    Yes, get that final shred of attention, for tomorrow nobody will give a flying frigg anymore :3

  • Filipe Santos

    One of the games is not a port??? Please be Smash!!!!

    • It’s gonna be Splatoon however…..too many changes were made for it to be just a Wii U port

      • Filipe Santos

        This could be true! I forgot Splatoon for a minute! Hahaha

  • Kenshin0011

    Mario Kart games don’t necessarily have to be made from the ground up anymore. Nintendo truly got so much right with Mario Kart 8 in graphics, gameplay, features, etc., so all they need to do is build upon that.
    Same goes for Smash Bros. It’s much more efficient to build upon these games, not make entirely new ones from scratch.

    • MagcargoMan

      “Same goes for Smash Bros.”

      No, having what is essentially the same game on three different platforms would make Smash get boring fast. It’ll be New Super Mario Bros. all over again.

      • Kenshin0011

        Are you saying the game engine and fighting mechanics need another revamp?

        Smash Bros for Wii U is arguably the most solid and popular fighting mechanic build of the Smash Bros franchise.

        With that said, if their intentions are to keep this build with the next entry (unlike the changes/revisions going from N64>GC>Wii), then this gives Sakurai the opportunity to not build the game from scratch, but spend time on making more new content

        • MagcargoMan

          Yes it does. Smash Wii U already started to feel stale after playing it so much on 3DS. Playing the same game on Switch would feel like I’ve played it already.

          I don’t really care what Sakurai does. He already blew it with Smash 4. I want a new director.

          • Kenshin0011

            Well then your hopes and desires are largely unreasonable. You’re certainly allowed your opinion and viewpoint, but that won’t change the overall reception the game has had with the masses, and it won’t change what Nintendo will decide for the franchise. What’s likely is that they’re very pleased with the game itself and its reception, so they’ll have Sakurai continue to be at the helm.

          • ForeVision

            What kind of changes would you like to see for the Smash Bros franchise?

          • MagcargoMan

            It’s not so much the gameplay I had a problem with but more so what was cut and what dumb decisions were made. Also splitting development between two versions had a huge impact on the game, especially But for the next Smash Bros that isn’t a port, I’d like:
            – A proper Classic mode again. Melee style would be most desired, but even Brawl style would be an improvement over Smash 4’s.
            – Adventure Mode coming back. Smash 4 felt light on singleplayer content compared to Brawl.
            – Target Test coming back instead of that awful Target Blast mode
            – Smash Run to be in the home console version instead of that crappy Smash Tour mode and for it to have less overpowered enemies and be able to encounter other fighters in the maze like originally intended
            – Alternate costumes for every character, something that pretty much every fighting game besides Smash does.
            – All clones decloned or cut (Luigi’s the only one I can tolerate remaining a semi-clone). Ganondorf especially should have a proper moveset built from the ground up that is faithful to how he is in the games.
            – No more Fire Emblem/Kid Icarus overrepresentation.

    Of course she wasn’t specific, she’s making it up

  • JasonBall

    I guess that’s the problem with putting out new installments in the same franchise too often: they get to where they look the same. Someone probably saw a screenshot of a game and said “woah thats a port of the ___ game on Wii U!” but it turns out to be a totally new game in the same franchise.
