Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a Phenomenal Performer on the Switch

Remember that you can always add your reasons why in our comments section.

Combine that with the Switch's relatively meagre storage space, not to mention the fact that Zelda's never managed to reach any higher than No.8 on Nintendo's Switch eShop charts, and it's clear that the vast majority of Zelda copies are being bought in a box. Some of these modes are very familiar, such as the standard Balloon Battle that we've always played in Battle Mode.

It turns out that Mario Kart owes a hell of a lot more to F-Zero than mere anti-gravity tracks, however.

Mario Kart fans, get pumped!

The Nintendo Switch system and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are available for individual purchase.

When we first reviewed Mario Kart 8 when it launched on the Wii U in 2014, our reviewer gave the title an excellent critique.

"It still looks great and some smart new features make the game not only more welcoming for complete beginners but equally more challenging for the game's most hardcore fanbase". As they enter the store, they'll trigger motion sensors that fire up flashing lights and the unmistakable "beep beep beeeeeeeeeeep" sound that's signaled the start of the race for generations of Mario Kart fans. However, you can not switch between any two particular items. Jonathan noted that Mario Kart 8 doesn't reinvent any wheel, but it, like almost every Mario Kart that came before it, was a wonderful multiplayer kart racer that would be enjoyed by fans for years to come.

Twenty-five years later, we're gearing up for the Switch re-release of Mario Kart 8; a game that many feel was the Wii U's best title.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes the best and makes it better. The upcoming Nintendo Switch gaming title can even have several gamers play against each other during the game's Wireless Play mode where two players can compete in a single split-screen battle or have up to eight Switch consoles connect with each other for a multiplayer bout.

However, it appears that players will have limited controller options when participating in a multiplayer game with friends. Your other option is for each player to use one Joy-Con controller - horizontally, or for each to sync their Pro Controllers.
