Gamestop has Nintendo Switch Consoles in Stock Right Now in Stores


27 April, 2017

Not only does the deluxe version of Mario Kart 8 comes with all DLC characters and courses unlocked (whether you purchased them on the Wii U or not), the game also comes with new characters and a new course already available in Battle Mode as well. And who would've guessed, it's still fantastic. Even though the Wii U could only handle the game at 720p, it was visually striking, and it played like a dream. Those outside of the USA may have better luck. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe lets you do that twice thanks to the addition of a second item slot. Stunningly handsome across 32 exciting tracks. That's an impressive leap forward in cultural relevance made all the more unusual by Mario Kart's true origin. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still that same gorgeous game filled with great courses, characters, and karts.

Much like its predecessors, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a racing game featuring some of Nintendo's most iconic characters such as Mario, Luigi, and Bowser.

Each race in Mario Kart is full of split-second decisions.

If you know other people with the Nintendo Switch, those consoles can be linked. Making decisions at the drop of a hat will decide your race, as well as a bit of random chance when you're waiting for your new item to be revealed.

For the first time ever, Target stores are getting the "Super Target Kart" treatment in honor of the April 28 Nintendo Switch release of Mario Kart 8. Unlocking auto customization options are still hidden away until you've grabbed an appropriate amount of coins but you won't be at too much of a disadvantage as the regular kart will do the job. For instance, you can now hold two items at any time, which means that you'll nearly always have an item at your disposal. While the game has gotten a couple of updates here and there, for the most part it is still largely the same with nothing major being introduced, save for now.

Trump says he will release tax reform package next week
On Thursday, Mnuchin acknowledged that eliminating loopholes and deductions will finance only a portion of Mr. House Republicans are also working to loosen Dodd-Frank regulations.

The new Battle Mode options are the most compelling reasons to pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. While both are optional, the site claims they can feel "jarring" and take much of the game's fun away from the player. It's nearly enough to forgive Nintendo for leaving it out the first time. nearly.

So has the popular racing series stood the test of time?

According to one team member, "Our original plan didn't include Mario or karts". Besides the higher resolution, you won't find any extra pizzaz. Nor is one person able to use a Pro Controller while the other goes the double Joy-Con route.

Overall, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an excellent package.

The Express Online gave the ported Wii U Kart Racer 5/5, with Liam Martin reporting: "Nintendo's new console is all about versatility, and nothing showcases this quite like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - not even Zelda Breath of the Wild". Share your comments below!
