KartRider falls into the casual arcade racer genre. The casual audience will most likely play Item mode instead of Speed mode because it is more of a fun party race filled with random action. The only way Nexon brings this back solely relies on Item mode because those players are more likely to spend money on microtransactions which is what they are aiming to make a profit on.
Yeah, I agree! That's why the implementation of item into the KR league was a pretty good idea. I think if item was taken more seriously, kart could be bigger in the next iteration of NAKR - if it happens!
