It was a very wise decision by Nintendo to port the excellent Mario Kart 8 from the Wii U to the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo confirmed that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best-selling Nintendo Switch game.
The game has sold 15.02 million units globally and brings total Mario Kart 8 sales to 23 million (Nintendo Switch & Wii U).
About Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
With Nintendo Switch, fans can enjoy the definitive version of Mario Kart 8 anywhere, anytime, even with up to 8 friends in local wireless multiplayer.
All your favourite tracks and characters return from the Wii U version, plus all DLC tracks and characters, and new characters join the roster, too: Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl from Splatoon, King Boo, Dry Bones, and Bowser Jr.! Plus, battle Mode has been revamped and includes Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast, with all-new courses such as Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, and returning ones like (GCN) Luigi’s Mansion and (SNES) Battle Course 1.
Players can now carry two items at a time, including new items returning from previous Mario Kart games such as Boo, the item-stealing ghost, and the Feather, which gives you a high jump in battle mode. Players can even choose to use a new Smart Steering feature which makes driving and staying on the track easy for novice players and kids, even at 200cc. Play in TV mode in up to 1080p.
Now all we need is some downloadable content.
