We’re kind of surprised that Captain Falcon hasn’t already made a surprise appearance in Mario Kart. Sure, he’s not a citizen of the Mushroom Kingdom, but that didn’t stop Link, Animal Crossing’s Isabelle, and the Splatoon folk from crashing the party in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Plus, he’s the mascot for Nintendo’s other racing franchise. It’s a match made in heaven.
Of course, he’d bring his own ride. A kart version of the Blue Falcon sounds perfect for drifting around Rainbow Road. Throw in a kart-friendly version of Big Blue as his home location and we’ve got a perfect addition to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s roster. I mean, we’d take another F-Zero game too… Hear us Nintendo!
