Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is impacted by a bit of an odd bug. If you have more than 100 friends on Switch, you won’t be able to create a private room with friends online. A message will pop up stating that you don’t have any friends, and you should add some by going to the Home Menu.

We’re hearing that deleting some people from the list solves the problem. The bug might be popping up due to Nintendo not optimizing the code from Mario Kart 8 for Wii U. On that system, there was a limit of 100 friends.

Original: With Mario Kart 8 Deluxe shipping today, Nintendo made one last trailer for the game to highlight the accolades it has received. You can view it below.

Aside from the new Battle Mode, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is similar to the original game on Wii U in many ways. However, Nintendo did implement some subtler changes that you may not have been aware about – including new Time Trials, additional tournament icons, and more. GameXplain takes a look at these and more changes below.

Update: GameXplain has replaced its original video with a new one that includes physical and digital on both platforms. We’ve added that in below.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is known to feature faster load times over its Wii U predecessor. We previously shared a video showing that the Switch release is in fact faster than the older version. However, GameXplain has now taken it a step further by showing both the physical and digital versions of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Like most Switch games, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will load the fastest digitally. The physical version is no slouch though, only falling a couple of seconds behind. Both options also beat out Mario Kart 8 on Wii U – especially when it comes to the initial boot.

We posted a few of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s alternative title screens a couple of days ago, but GameXplain now has a video up showing some extra ones. Get a look at the full set below.

Mario Kart 8 had a slight frame rate bug on Wii U. It mostly ran at 60 FPS, but an unknown issue caused it to dip to 59 FPS during single frames. Many players were likely unaware of it, though some felt it was an issue nonetheless.

For Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Nintendo addressed the situation entirely, and the racer is now at a silky smooth 60 frames per second. GameXplain takes a closer look below.
