Mario Kart 8 is coming to the Nintendo Switch repackaged as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The Deluxe was added to the title because this version of the game will feature things not found in the original Wii U version of the game. Those new features include new racers, the ability to steal items, turn invisible, jumping obstacles, double items, 200cc mode, smart steering, a revamped battle mode and more.
I’m not sure if any of this is the reason of enough to purchase the game a second time, but if you never owned the original then go for it. Seems like a solid pick up. I’ll still be waiting on something that makes me want to pick up the Nintendo Switch. Check out the new features trailer below. Showcases the things I mentioned above.
