Nintendo should port the Mario Kart Arcade games to the Wii U

Wii U Only suggests Nintendo could make their new console more attractive by developing home versions of the Mario Kart Arcade games. The author gives a number of reasons he believes this would be a great idea, including a few ways the Wii U GamePad could be used to enhance the experience. (Mario Kart, Mario Kart Arcade GP, Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, Mario Kart U, Nintendo, Wii U)

Without a doubt. Why just sit on them?

Wow... didn't know there was a Mario Kart arcade game. Looked it up online. This would be a great port to test the Nintendo Network with.

My thoughts exactly. Such a waste.

Yea they should have some old classic N64 games available on Wii U cause i really miss Pokemon Stadium and Super Mario 64.

oh we'll have them allright, the fact that we are able to transfer the stuff bought on the wii to the wiiu is evidence enough

Watch some videos of the game, it's really not that great.

Came here to say this. Might be fun for an arcade game but it would really just water down the Mario Kart brand.

They're decent enough games, I always hated having to put in another credit to play on even if you win by a mile.. also the courses were really repetitive.

Anyway, these games are quite old now and it would probably be better if Nintendo just focused on a new, Wii U-based MK.

How about the F-Zero AX ?

I think Nintendo's attitude is that Mario Kart is a once a gen franchise.

Though would be nice if they bought this and their other arcade titles home on like their downloadable service.
