Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was updated a short while ago with the addition of Link from Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Master Cycle Zero. Have a look at some footage below.

Very recently, Nintendo teased more updates for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The company is delivering on that front with new content from Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

All players can download version 1.6.0 for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It features Link in his Champion’s Tunic, the Master Cycle Zero, and more.

Earlier in the week, we heard that Nintendo was filing something at Universal Citywalk. We just didn’t know what.

Unfortunately, what was taking place was seemingly less exciting than most had imagined. An attendee has confirmed that a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tournament was taking place. Nintendo may share some footage from the event, but it sounds like there isn’t a whole lot more to it.


Nintendo posted a new video with Shinya Takahashi in which he discusses a few different Switch games, including Smash Bros. Ultimate. You can watch it below.

The big takeaway here is that Takahashi mentions “further updates for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe”. That was after he talked about the new Nintendo Labo integration. Could those future updates simply be more tie-ins for Labo or something else?


Over a year after its release, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been updated. Nintendo has added some special functionality to the game. Once you’ve installed the latest patch, it’ll be compatible with Nintendo Labo.

The compatibility specifically extends to the Toy-Con Motorbike. This is included with the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit.

Here’s a new trailer:

Nintendo has just released a new update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. If you’ve bought the game, you can download version 1.4.0.

Nintendo has added in support for Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean. Additionally, Nintendo addressed one particular issue. Sometimes music won’t be played after you reach the finish line and the race ends, but this has now been fixed.

Note that when you download the update, you won’t be able to play with others in local play or LAN play who are still on version 1.2.1 or earlier.


The Switch itself received a major update today, but it wasn’t the only thing on the console to be patched. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has also been updated and is now at version 1.3.0.

Today’s update enables video capture compatibility and makes other adjustments, such as Blue Shells no longer hitting the second place player when the first place player hasn’t yet crossed the finish line. We’ve included the full patch notes below.

Nintendo has started distribution of another update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Players with access to the game can download version 1.2.1.

Today’s update specifically addresses one particular problem. The single patch note from Nintendo states, “Corrected an issue that prolonged the time to return to the lobby after races near the start and end times of online tournaments.”

And that’s it. Nothing too huge, but it’s always good to see issues being addressed.

Thanks to Cameron for the tip.
