Nintendo Switch Gets A Mario Kart 8 Port With Better Battle Mode

By Heather Alexandra on at

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will release on the Nintendo Switch. The updated version will include all Wii U DLC tracks as well as new characters. It will also add a revamped Battle Mode.

The game will add Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy from Splatoon, as well as King Boo, Dry Bones and Bowser Jr as new characters. A robust series of changes to Battle Mode will add new maps and allow players to carry two items at a time.

One of the new items added back into the game in the item-stealing Boo, giving players a chance to be even bigger pricks in what is supposedly a happy-go-lucky racing game and totally not a friendship destruction simulator.
