Mario Kart 9 is an upcoming Mario Kart game for the Nintendo Switch and will
Mario Kart 9

The game's logo

be released in 2017.  This game will be the second Mario Kart game for the Switch, the fourteenth installment in the overall series, and the ninth in the main series. The Hang Glider and Underwater mechanics return from Mario Kart 7, the Anti Gravity mechanic returns from Mario Kart 8, and this game will introduce new mechanic known as the Water Ski Mechanic which allows racers to now race on the surface of water.  Just like Mario Kart 8/Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, this game will be compatible with Amiibo Figurines.


The gameplay is the same as Mario Kart Wii, Mario Kart 7, and Mario Kart 8/Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.  Tricks, stunts, bikes returns from Mario Kart Wii, the Hang Glider mechanic, the Underwater mechanic, vehicle customization, and the option to race in first person view returns from Mario Kart 7, the Anti Gravity mechanic, spin boosts, ATV bodies, and Mario Kart TV returns from Mario Kart 8/Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and 10 racers in the same time like in Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed. Players can collect coins to increase their top speed just like in Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8/Mario Kart 8 Deluxe except players can now don't have limit of coins per race and if they get hit by an item or fall in a pit, they lose 2 coins, such as in Super Mario Kart.  The new feature in this game are the Water Ski mechanic.  The Water Ski mechanic allows racers to drive on the surface of water or any liquid matter and just like in Anti Gravity mode when racers bump into each other, they also get a spin boost.  The entire gameplay is in HD just like Mario Kart 8 but now the courses look more realistic due to the use of Unreal Engine 4.
