Nintendo have been reassuring us that its biggest franchises (Zelda, Star Fox, Mario Kart, Super Mario) were hitting the 3DS this year. In a recent interview, Shigeru Miyamoto did back up these claims for all except one of these titles: Mario Kart 3D. Discussing his focus on the 3DS and its triple-A titles planned for release now through the end of the year, Kart was dissappointingly forgotten from his mention:
“The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time will be released in June, Starfox this summer and Super Mario 3D, which is completely original, is coming this year. I am involved with these titles and Mario Kart.”
I won’t complain about lack of titles, since at least those three are planned, but could this mean we won’t be playing a Mario Kart 3D until 2012?
