Mario Kart 8 Deluxe lets you change characters and karts in the online lobby

Posted on April 17, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Like the original game on Wii U, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe supports online, and you’ll connect with others in lobbies. One subtle yet big change was made in the Switch version. With this new version, it’s possible to change characters and karts in the online lobby. That means you won’t have to back out of a race to make these modifications.

    Now if only we could change weapons and gear in Splatoon 2 without leaving the lobby.

      Considering how dedicated the Splatoon team is, I’m fairly certain we’ll be seeing this in the game upon release.

    Now this is a change I can get behind.

      I mean, I can get behind ALL of the changes made so far. But this one is pretty great.

    That’s pretty sweet… might get the chance to play something other than Wario exclusively lol

    • ForeVision

      In his big, as we call it in Dutch “pooier bak”? πŸ˜›

        I actually race with the basic tyres, the skeleton frame and the Wario ‘stache glider πŸ˜€ I used to main Luigi, but I found Wario’s fatness to be more to my liking.

        Shame Nintendo forgot Wario already has his own car…
        I would use this 24/7 if it was in the game, but alas D:

          Haha, that is indeed the exact cart I was talking about. It is too bad that it isn’t in, true.
