Description

With Nintendo Switch, fans can enjoy the definitive version of Mario Kart 8 anywhere, anytime, even with up to eight friends in local wireless multiplayer. All your favourite tracks and characters return from the Wii U version, plus all DLC tracks and characters, and new characters join the roster, too: Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl from Splatoon, King Boo, Dry Bones, and Bowser Jr.! Plus, battle mode has been revamped and includes Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast, with all-new courses such as Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, and returning ones like (GCN) Luigi’s Mansion and (SNES) Battle Course 1 from Super Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Players can now carry two items at a time, including new items returning from previous Mario Kart games such as Boo, the item-stealing ghost, and the Feather, which gives you a high jump in battle mode. Players can even choose to use a new Smart Steering feature which makes driving and staying on the track easy for novice players and kids, even at 200cc. Play in TV mode in up to 1080p.

Capabilities:
Multiplayer splitscreen: 2-4 players (3-4 requires extra Joy-Con's)
Multiplayer local: 2-8 players
Multiplayer online: 2-12 players

An even better version of a masterpiece

Reviewed by on

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is amazing. It still seems fresh after hundreds of hours of gameplay on the original version. The additions may seem like nothing at first, but once they are experienced, the Deluxe subtitle becomes clear. The new battle mode arenas are much more respectable than the original, which were just the tracks from the normal game. Here, we see 8 amazing new arenas that are incredibly fun to play on with CPU or friends. The five modes available in the battle mode are all a blast and kept me wanting more.
