What If the Third Nintendo Exclusive Sonic Title is Actually Mario Kart Wii U?

A developer from Sumo Digital recently teased that the follow-up to Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed could settle a long dispute between rivals over who would win a kart race. Could the third title in the Nintendo/Sega Sonic partnership actually be Mario Kart Wii U?

GenGAME explores how such a game could not only be good for the Sonic brand, but also good for giving Mario Kart the creative kick it needs to propel itself into the HD generation. (Mario Kart, Sonic And All-Stars Racing Transformed, Wii U)

If this explains why obvious courses like Green Hill were avoided for Sonic & All-Stars Racing, I'd be very impressed. Would love to see a racing game featuring Sonic that doesn't spread itself too thin across multiple franchises.

"Mario vs. Sonic all-stars karting"
hmm... it has a certain ring to it

I think "Mario Kart vs. Sonic" sounds more likely. Short and sweet and sticks to the "Mario Kart" brand.

Listen it will be an exclusive SASR for the wiiu that's all i think it is i mean Nintendo have said they will show MarioKart so it wont be that,i think one of sega's games will be Sonic racing going off wiiu selling more units than the ps3/360 they only managed 250,000 between them and thats 140 million consoles worldwide ??? so i can see why Sega are backing wiiu.

Expanding the title of the Mario Kart name to include Sonic would be disrespectful to the franchise.

Mario Kart vs SONIC ALL STARS <-- sounds about right, right?

It look like Sonic & Mario are Bff now

It could be Excite Truck, that's up Sega's alley.

Would be exciting to see, i do like other racing games they have released as of late.

Mario & Sonic Team: All Stars Racing? hmm.. nah.

Whatever the 3 games are, hopefully they are good. A new game that's very similar to SA2 would be nice, as long as it aint like Sonic Heroes..

The Sonic Rush games were really good on DS, and the boss fights were actually challenging, unlike most of the Mario games.

yes bring game to the wii u love sonic characters silver is my favorite
jameson12345  +   691d ago
Nah, too soon after Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed. Plus, I would rather want a creative Mario Kart, not Super Smash Bros Kart.

remember when sonic was nintendo's enemy?

So is he saying it might be Mario & Sonic Kart, or a Sonic racer with MK gameplay?

Also, how come he doesn't consider Diddy Kong a major character?

Here's what I don't understand, if Nintendo and Sega announced a partnership for 3 exclusive Sonic titles. Why are we including Sonic&Mario in as one of the three? That game is exclusive by default because of Mario. So shouldn't we be expecting two more game announcements? I've been wondering about this from the very first statement in the ND.

That is what pisses me off. Apparently the next Mario and Sonic Olympics game is part of the deal. As if that game needed a contract to be exclusive.
legendoflex  +   690d ago
Sega confirmed it's part of the deal.
DivineAssault  +   690d ago
Sega needs a remake of Sonic R.. The R can stand for "Redemption" That game was horribly developed but im sure nintendo can make it right if rebooted as long as they have a hand in development..

Sonic & co racing on foot is how a sonic racing game should be.. Just like the genesis multiplayer was but modernized & balanced... Each with their own unique abilities & power ups to slow down & get in the way of other runners..
