Nintendo Switch Brings "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" With High-Octane New Features

Given the portability of Nintendo Switch, the "Mario Kart 8" players are expected to bring the game's anti-gravity action anywhere, as every track, kart and character from the Wii U version will now be experienced in the new console. In fact, reports also suggest that aside from the previously released DLC, more content will also be added.

Nintendo Switch version of "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" is reported to come with loads of new content, with the five new characters, bringing a total of 42 racers, which is now a record for the series. According to reports, the new karts that have been inspired by Splatoon, returning items such as the jumping Feather and item-stealing Boo, a new Smart Steering control feature and the ability to hold two items at once make the game the definitive version of the classic franchise.

Moreover, the Nintendo Switch version also includes the revamped Battle mode, which can be played online and locally. This multiplayer mode brings different fun options across the eight well-designed Battle courses, SKNR reported.

According to reports, the highly awaited fourth installment in the franchise overs 25 years old is confirmed to come to the new console. Moreover, the latest entry in the game series is expected to feel like a reboot of the 1991 original with so much fan, beginning in the shape of the first island, to the speed and the rhythm with which the Funktronians walk, Polygon reported.
