Yes, I know. You have two thousand facebook friends to play Mario Kart with, but hey it’s not that bad!
A recent article at Joystiq features a little interview with Mario Kart 3DS producer Hideki Konno.
Obviously, the game lets you play online with your friends, but if you had planned to make a big party of 64 players as I’m sure many of you had, it may not work that way.
Hideki Konno says: “our goal right now is to have the same number of players for both local wireless and multiplayer over wi-fi.”. You can easily recognize Nintendo’s strategy to bring the best experience possible to the player. How does it relate to the topic?
Mario Kart 3DS producer wants the game to run as smooth as possible. In other words, he wants to make sure it runs at a 60 FPS frame rate both online and offline, 2D and 3D, providing a smooth gameplay experience. That being said, I don’t think anyone will complain unless any of you wanted a Mario Kart Double Dash 16-players online experience.
Here we are waiting for Mario Kart 3DS, but I’m also excited for what Wii U could bring to the table. By the way, I wonder if they could make a Super Mario 128 on Wii U, featuring online – 128 players on the screen? Wouldn’t that be amazing? No? Well, at least you’d have a hell of a party. Anyway, Mario Kart 3DS should be released by the end of the year.
