Miyamoto Talks Mario Kart
Nintendo's the creator of Donkey Kong, Super Mario Brothers, and The Legend Of Zelda has apologized for the delay in the arrival of GameCube in European stores and talks about Mario Kart!
He told Ananova (a news site): "We could have launched GameCube into Europe in March of this year, but we didn't. We are sorry that we are late in introducing the GameCube to Europe, but, we really wanted to have the right amount of hardware and by delaying the launch until May we are able to stock enough machines to be able to sell 500,000 consoles on day one.
Within two months of the launch we expect to shift 1,000,000 units of GameCube hardware across Europe. I think that we are better prepared for the launch of the next console into this market and will have prepared 20 titles for day one for Europe."
Miyamoto also said that he is currently working on the update of Nintendo classic Mario Kart for the GameCube.
These are his exact words: "The situation is that we are having a series of meetings about Mario Kart for GameCube and we have come to the point where we will be making some drastic changes to the last games. Sonic the Hedgehog might be one of the drivers!"
Good to hear that he is currently working on a new Mario Kart game. And the game might even have a few suprises! Sonic as one of the drivers? Can't wait to get my hands on some more details about this game!
