Mario Kart Makeover to Turn Target Into a Lawless Racetrack

Twenty-five years later, we're gearing up for the Switch re-release of Mario Kart 8; a game that many feel was the Wii U's best title.

But if you want to get an early start to your Mario Kart-racing weekend you'll want to get to your local GameStop or Best Buy at midnight to get your copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

For a console that's had the biggest hardware launch in Nintendo's history across Europe, the USA and Australia, the platform holder has been surprisingly coy about releasing concrete sales data for its recently released Switch.

All of that is true of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe but slightly smoother graphics, an awesome Battle Mode, and extra content adds icing to a cake that's already overflowing with frosting. Whether it's played in tabletop mode while waiting for food at a restaurant, in handheld mode in the back of a auto, or in TV mode at a party, there are plenty of ways for budding racers and veteran battlers to get stuck into wheel-to-wheel action. Furthermore, the detachable parts such as Joy-Con controllers, the Split Screen and Kickstand are the elements that make the game run smoothly and flawlessly. That's the best support ever for a game like this. "The game was designed for single-player gameplay because of our focus on getting across the sense of speed and the size of the courses". As it turns out, the original version of that game did have a conceptual multiplayer mode - and that eventually became Mario Kart. Any game sold in any region is playable on the Nintendo Switch. If you are someone who looks for a more serious challenge, you have the 200cc difficulty option.

The new Battle Mode options are the most compelling reasons to pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. So, this makes it a total of eight arenas. Time Trials, Grand Prix, and the ultra hard 200cc mode are some of the most challenging in the game.

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. This isn't a fully fool-proof method and you'll rarely find yourself tumbling off the world, especially if an attack sends you flying that way. The stores are decorated with Mario theme, the shopping cart depicts the game vehicle, and the theme music is played. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Online Play mode allows both players use of the double Joy-Con method.
