Update: English version added – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Japanese overview trailer

Posted on March 10, 2017 by in News

Update: An English version of the trailer is now available:


Nintendo has released a new trailer for Mario Kart 8, which goes pretty in-depth over the game’s new features. Though it is only available in Japanese, you can still see the new characters and the different battle modes, including a new mode with Piranha Plants. It seems to be that members of the red team are all equipped with Piranha Plants and must get them to chomp the members of the blue team. Check it out below:

  • Huzzah! More than four unique battle arenas! This game is going to be awesome! We’ve been purposefully not playing any more of the Wii U original so it’ll be fresh when we play the Switch one!

    considering all the new characters now, it has lost the soul of being a “Mario” kart game, it’s more a Nintendo kart than a Mario kart

      Which is exactly what I wanted from Mario Kart 8 before they announced it. Couldn’t be happier, hoping 9 is full-on Nintendo Kart.

    I wish it had new tracks…They could have at least made 4.

    • Switchling

      This game already has 48 tracks, the most in any MK game. That’s why they focused on battle mode instead.

    “Smart steering”? Is that like the Super Guide for Mario Kart now?

    Too bad I already have the Wii U version, the new stuff shown here is not enough to get the upgraded version. So my Switch will remain in it’s box until further notice.
