Originally, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a Nintendo Wii U titles, but it isn’t necessarily the best game on it. Based on the results on Nintendo Switch, it literally feels like this particular game was made for the Nintendo Switch.
The Nintendo Switch is all about versatility, and no game could deliver such versatility to the console but the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Not even Zelda: Breath of the Wild could do that.
This unique game allows you to play it on TV, see the online lobbies, enjoy taking part in races, and enjoy the Multiplayer tournament. As Mario Kart 8 is a multiplayer-oriented game, it was designed to play it with friends. 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.
The Mario Kart 8 offer tons of new and old content. It features 48 total courses of which 32 come with the original game. The remaining 16 courses are downloadable as DLCs. There are over 40 unique characters in the game, tons of unlockable car parts, over two dozen weapons, and a number of battle modes.
Almost all of the Wii U battle modes are revamped for Nintendo Switch and they now offer more playability with friends. The Shine thief mode allows the players to hold on to the crown until the time runs out. However, the Coin runner tasks the players to collect more and more coins. Similarly, the Renegade Round-Up tasks the players to play in teams and chose sides between the Outlaws and the Piranha Plant Police.
Bob-omb and the Balloon Thief are still the most thrilling modes you’ll ever enjoy on Nintendo Switch. A number of new arenas are now part of the game including an arena that takes inspiration from Splatoon Urchin Underpass.
The Versus races are the most fun part of the game. Time Trials, Grand Prix, and the ultra difficult 200cc mode are some of the most challenging in the game.
Some of the new additions are not that catchy. These new additions include the auto accelerate and smart steering features. These features are for younger players for better fighting chances.
Another fantastic feature is the ability to hold two items at once. However, you cannot switch between any two particular items. For long drifts, there is another level boost present in the game, but it has its own downsides.
When Mario Kart8 Deluxe released in 2014, it was one of the best classics, it’s even better now on Switch. With a timeless action and thrill, amazing visuals, and versatility make this game a perfect candidate for Nintendo Switch. As a multiplayer classic, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe proves it’s worth on the new hybrid console.
