Mario Kart 8 Deluxe art points to five different Battle Mode types

Posted on January 21, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe appears to feature five different options in Battle Mode. Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast were previously confirmed by Nintendo directly. An image from Nintendo of Poland has since surfaced, showing what appears to be Coin Runners, Shine Thief (or Shine Runners, but unlikely if we’re getting Coin Runners), and something involving the Piranha Plant.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches on April 28. Nintendo will certainly have more to say about the game before then.

    i feel piranha plant battle mode match take place for players fight each other and avoid the piranha plant (since they will eat you to lose) to win.

    For coins match I think you collect coins or pick up coins from players or A.I.s racers when they are attacked to win with number high score to beat other players and A.I. racers

    Bomb match, from saw video gameplay that everyone beat each other with bombs to win.

    For Star, I think everyone try take the star and keep hold until win. So person have to reach the star and keep star until win and avoid others try steal your star. I think it is related to that game match. 🙂

    I hope we get more characters too… Yes I know, there’s already 42 of them, but these include 5 babies, 4 power-up clones, 2 gender versions (Villager and Inkling) and 7 Koopalings (which I like of course, but still).

    All I want to know is if the battle mode has a version of block fort.

  • Uncle Phil Hug

  • Indielink

    Oh. S**t. Shine. Thief.

    Suddenly a day 1 purchase.

  • Dascylus

    People are going to buy this just because it has a REAL battle mode and not whatever the hell Mario Kart 8’s was

    I wonder what that Piranha Plant battle mode is.
    I hope it is as fun as it may sound.

    It’s not Nintendo of Poland. It’s only distributor of Nintendo games and consoles – CQE (Conquest Entertainment) 😉
    Nintendo of Poland doesn’t exists
