■ Story

From the Mayor

I’m the mayor. You see, I live to be revered by everyone. It’s the main reason I ever became mayor at all, really. If we Katz were in charge, the world would certainly be a more peaceful place. And I would be held on high!

Ruling the World?

Many tricks and traps are waiting for you on your adventure as you set off to obtain the seven world stones. Can someone really rule the world I wonder? Does anyone have a problem with that? Now, under my instructions, the hero “Kulu” and the beautiful goddess “Arika” shall depart on their adventure.

■ Characters


The young, chosen one of the Katz. Kulu sets off with Arika in search of the seven world stones that the Katz will use to rule the world.


A goddess summoned by the mayor. She has the power to rotate the ground, but she doesn’t remember anything about herself before being summoned. She agrees to help Kulu on his quest in return for being sent back to her world.

The Mayor

The head of the Katz village, who has his sights set on world domination. He has chosen Kulu as the brave adventurer to gather the world stones. He yearns to be respected by everyone and most recently had a stone statue of himself erected in the village.


A tribe living under the rule of the Wonder Labyrinth, Katz are regarded as the lowest of the low among living things. With so many Katz traveling to other lands, you are certain to bump into other Katz on your travels.

Kosuke Yakubi on ARMS updates, the blue shell and Mario Kart's next steps

This comes from an Eurogamer interview with Nintendo producer Kosuke Yabuki...

On the feeling of bringing constant updates
It is new for us, really – I kind of feel like it’s necessary, and it’s not so much that we’ve changed the way we do things, it’s that we’ve entered a different era. I worked on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as well as Arms – those regular updates and balance adjustments, it feels like something we have to keep doing. Something that’s a big consideration for us is that, in addition to supporting existing games with regular updates, we have to make new games. Working out the balance about how we do both of those things is a big consideration.

About Mario Kart's blue shell and if considered to remove it
We’re always experimenting with what new elements to introduce or what elements can be removed. We have tried – or we are trying – to see what the game’s like without the blue shell. When we’ve experimented without the blue shell, actually it feels like something’s missing. Like there’s something not quite enough in the game. So for now we’ve kept it in. You know, sometimes life isn’t fair. Sometimes in life you have something where you feel that’s not right, and that’s frustrating.

On the next step for Mario Kart
So firstly, yeah – there really is a lot of content in Mario Kart 8, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. And if you’re enjoying that and are satisfied, I’m happy to hear that. Definitely there’s no thought at all that the Mario Kart series might end! We have lots of things already that we’ve come up with that haven’t been used in games before. We’re already of course thinking about preparations for future Mario Kart games. That’s not saying that there’s going to be a new Mario Kart game on the Switch! But in general the research and development process for new Mario Kart content, that’s something we’re always doing. Sometimes that’s driven by new hardware and new technology ideas as well. The two are linked.

To go back to what I was saying earlier, with Mr. Miyamoto, Mr. Konno, they’re always saying that when we’re creating new games think about what new elements you can introduce, think about how you can make things fresh and exciting. And even if the new elements might at first not be liked by existing fans, or existing fans might not get it – the important thing is to keep trying new things. I’m flattered that you say with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe we’ve perfected Mario Kart – but there’s definitely room for the series to continue with a new Mario Kart, and a new Mario Kart will appear in the future. Of course, when a new Mario Kart comes out, it doesn’t mean the others disappear. I’d love fans to love all of them. 8 will still exist, 7 will still exist – if fans love every entry in the series in their own right, that’s the ideal situation for us.
