With Nintendo Switch, the players will enjoy the final version of Mario Kart 8 wherever and when they want, with support for local multiplayer for up to eight players.
All your favorite characters and circuits of the Wii U version make their return, along with all the downloadable content. And there’s also new characters arriving: the Inkling boy and the Inkling girl of Splatoon, King Boo, Dry Bones and Bowser Jr.
In addition, the battle mode has been expanded and includes the Battle balloons and Bob-omb Blast, with all new circuits like Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, as well as to any returns such as the Palace of Louis of Mario Kart: Double Dash for Nintendo GameCube and the war path 1 of Super Mario Kart for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
Now players can bring two objects at a time, some of which make their way back from previous games such as Boo (the item-stealing ghost) and the Feather, which gives players a high jump in Battle mode. Players can also choose to use the all-new driving assistant, which makes it easier to stay on track for beginners and children, also for the 200cc class. Play locally or online in the TV mode with up to 1080p resolution.
Recall that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be available in April 2017 on Nintendo Switch.
