The American car company Tesla, Inc. (formerly Tesla Motors) is about making electric vehicles more viable and affordable. Elon Musk, co-founder, CEO and technological entrepreneur behind it – who is also responsible for the SpaceX program – is known to think outside the box.
According to IGN, Musk tried to get Nintendo to collaborate with Tesla and release a car version of Mario Kart . This was discovered during a short Twitter Exchange when Musk was questioned to make special video games playable within the Tesla bill while the cars were charging. When a user asked about the Mario Kart series, Musk said that the manufacturer had approached Nintendo, but the Japanese company would not license it to them. Apparently, Musk is open to the idea that Valve’s digital steam service will eventually be.
Unfortunately, Musk did not reveal why Nintendo denied Tesla. We will guess and say that Nintendo would be loyal to German car manufacturer Mercedes after special DLC released in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe a few years ago.
Car racing aren It is not completely new. In fact, Musk as previously announced classic Atari titles such as Missile Command and Centipede could be played in Tesla cars and it became a reality in October. Thanks to Nintendo’s past system and current system, nobody needs to sit there wondering what Mario Kart would be like in a car as it has already been possible for several years now. For the record it is crowded, and if the car is moving it can be a rather nauseous experience for some people. We will probably get an even better idea of what it’s like when Mario Kart Tour comes to mobile in 2019.
What do you think of Elon’s idea to add Mario Kart to Tesla cars? Do you think it would have been good publicity for Nintendo? Or do you think it made the right decision? Tell us below.
