Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – loading times video comparison (initial boot, tracks)

Posted on April 19, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos

We’ve heard that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe features improved loading times. In a new video from NomComms, we’re able to see just how much they’ve improved.

With the initial boot, the time it takes to start up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is nearly half of the Wii U version. Going into tracks themselves also shave off several seconds.

Watch the full video comparison below.

  • wiiu version is better

    • NTDOJTSU

      Haha… no.

    • Indielink

      You are silly.

      If you love staring and not playing, then ok…

      • Probably measured using the inferior optical disc.
        The wiiu controllers and touch controls are superior. It is better to play in a house than on a bench

        • TheWeasel

          Not seeing how that last statement works in Wii U’s favor, considering the Switch is capable of playing in the house in addition to the bench.

          That’s your reasoning??? That the measurement was inaccurate?? lololol

          • looking forward to 3 years from now when you tell me that Nintendo’s switch replacement is better and Arms 4K isn’t just DLC for Arms

          • awng781

            Looking forward to today when you claim shorter load times ar e worse than longer ones πŸ™‚

            The Switch IS a better piece of hardware than the WiiU. Not subjectively, but literally. I love my WiiU but the Switch does everything the WiiU did but better. Better touch Screen, better motion controls, faster load times, proper portability, much better tech specs. You could argue that the WiiU pro controller is slightly more comfortable than the Switch one maybe…

            Also, at the rate the Switch is selling, don’t expect a replacement for around 5 years not 3.

            oh. so someone super salty about the horrible decision to actually buy a Wii U

        • Jacob Groves

          Lmfao. You play docked too and it upgraded visuals on Switch as well 1080p and 60fps meanwhile Wii U crying like you that sticks in 720p and 60fps. Switch here is best version for MK 8 with better battle mode this time plus 5 characters. You hahahahahahahaha you hahahahaha failed.

          Lol

          you know the pre-e3 news drought is here and real when people are arguing with obvious trolls out of boredom

          • Indielink

            That’s the thing though, he says things that don’t totally suck every so often. He just has a hatred for the Switch that manifests in a weird WiiU hard-on.

          • Antony A

            he gave himself away with the arms 4k comment. Clearly a wiiu owner that’s annoyed that the switch is getting rereleases of wiiu games. I’m in the same boat but I’m not salty, the portability is easily enough reason for me to buy again !

    Who knew more powerful hardware could have benefits like this? Still not worth the repurchase.

    • ME4Twaffle

      Taking MK8 plus upgrades and new content everywhere you go isn’t worth the repurchase?

      The trade value on MK8U has gone down a bit since March 3rd, but you’d still get about $18 for it today, making MK8D ~$42. I got more like $30 when I traded mine in, so I’m essentially getting it for 1/2 price.
