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.

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

Nintendo & The Switch At Their Best

Reviewed by on

What's to say about Mario Kart that people don't know already? This is the complete package, ported over from the Wii U with all DLC tracks and characters, plus some new characters like the Splatoon chars, Ghost and others. There's standard racing, time trials, battle modes and multiplayer to get into. This was the first game I bought on the Switch, and what I loved most about it was that I could enjoy it with my wife and with kids in the family with next to no learning required, as the auto-steering and drive assist features really helped newbies and smaller folk. The game works perfectly whether playing alone or splitting the joycons, plus there's a fantastic online mode to play that works like a charm. Getting in and out of games was easy and quick, with barely any delay in races. I spend dozens upon dozens of hours with this game and I always kept going back to it for some quick bursts of fun or to pass the time while waiting for other releases. It just doesn't get old, and playing with friends anywhere at any time is amazing for this type of game. This is Nintendo and the Switch at their best.

Awesome port of an already great WiiU game

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

This is the best version of Mario Kart 8 you can get. Already includes all of the DLC that the WiiU version had, and the unlockable vehicles and parts keep you coming back to play alone or with friends.

Unlimited Hours of Competitive Fun

Whether alone or with friends you will constantly try and prove your racing prowess to those who dare challenge you and those who may beat you. Fun and immersive. Love it!

Great multiplayer fun!

Reviewed by on

If you love cart racers and want a local multiplayer game, this is the best cart racer with fun tracks and weapons to use. This version even includes options to help out new players that might go off a cliff when going around those tricky bends. There are 48 tracks to race on as well as new battle mode arenas!

An even better version of a masterpiece

Reviewed by on (Verified Buyer)

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.
