Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Update 1.1 download available now

Today Nintendo has released a new update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe that brings the title to version 1.1.


Many of you are likely to be enjoying the overall experience that Nintendo has been able to bring to the gaming community of this generation with the release of Switch, its latest platform, which recently received the release of one of the most successful titles in the market, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Despite being an improved version of the game previously released on Wii U and exclusive to the brand, the title released in late April still came with some minor bugs, which will be corrected over time, and Nintendo did not want to wait.
