Renaming Mario Kart?
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe boasts a huge roster of 42 playable characters, which includes a handful of non-Mario characters. Some people are now asking, “Should Mario Kart still be called Mario Kart when there are so many non-Mario characters?” The proposed names around the Internet are Nintendo Kart and Super Smash Kart.
A full name change might not be the best solution to this problem, as even Super Smash Bros. has a Mario-esque connotation with the title due to the “Bros.” part. Even with the addition of non-Mario and even non-Nintendo characters to the lineup, there has never been a name change to the Super Smash Bros. games, other than appending a subtitle like Melee or Brawl.
