Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still a gorgeous game and the overhauled Battle mode is a great reason to pick it up.
Mario Kart ftw, I've pre ordered for the battle mode, local multiplayer, online and I don't mind unlocking all the 150 and 200cc golds again ;) The best racing game ever just got better. I'll have no problem getting hours out of it again especially because Battle mode is supposed to be bomb!
I can't wait to play this and Zelda.
Haven't played a MarioKart game since Double Dash. I can't imagine a kart game being more fun than that one. It baffles me how they still haven't made a sequel to it. Two characters in one kart--it's brilliant
lol you get down votes for being excited about great games.
Yeah best racing game for children, who like cartoon-arcade-racers, lol. This looks like it belongs on treehouse tv.
Kart Racing game*
Oh shut up
There's Racing Simulator, then Racing, then Wipeout, F Zero type of racing, then Kart Racing game. Don't DDoS me for correcting op
Kart Racing is a sub-genre of racing, so "racing game" works.
So what is the difference? No matter what kind of racing game it is, you still in a control of a vehicle and try to win the race, is it not? Somewhere deep down, n4g just died alittle based on these reviews.
Children's racing game* Children can't grasp the concept of over steering, understeering, apex and just any sort of life like physics. Simple games for simple minds, I suppose.
Everything is unlocked from the jump.
This game is seriously fun and hours can pass while you race online! I like the new additions like being able to change your cart and racer while still in the lobby. I will get the Deluxe version for sure!
Great to see so many new IPs on the Switch already. /s
Yeah cause Knack was so amazing when the PS4 launched! Just one month in....... /s
Although I agree that the ps4 launch line-up wasn't the best, Knack wasn't as bad as many people said it was. I must be the only one looking forward to 2...
The same year TLoU came out and could've been a launch title. Unlike the abandoned wii u.
@thunder I think you missed the word "new". Mario Kart 8 on the Switch is a rerelease of Mario Kart 8 (the 8th for IP) for the WiiU. Knack was the first game in its series (read: first game in a new IP). You need to learn the difference between a new game and a new IP.
@Ron no son. Clearly you don't understand what I was saying. A new ip in the first month of a console launch doesn't mean anything great. Hence why I brought up knack. A console needs time on the market to bring thriving new ip. Bloodborne didn't arrive til almost 2 years into the ps4s life. And as a new ip that's kinda stretching it as it's a reskin of demon souls sped up.
At least PS4 offer more game on launched date than Switch.
At least Sony takes chances with new IP's unlike Nintendo using the same ones from the 80's, and Sony could of easily delayed The Last of Us and God of War 2 to release on new hardware but they care about their customers.
1-2-Switch is a new IP (although crappy) Snipperclips is a fantastic new IP that's a blast to play. I'd be shocked if it didn't get a sequel in a couple years. Arms hits in two months.
I want a gazillion new ips for the switch after its got released more than one month.
Blue shell when I'm in second place 🤗
Not many games that can be as enjoyable as MK. I'll be encouraging my Switch owning friends to come over for a few drinks/races asap :D
Awesome. Just got a Switch. Looking forward to this!
Ouh yes baby... Nintendo i love u
I would like to have the battle-modes in a third dlc for the Wii U version...
Has a Mario Kart player who has invested and enjoyed all the games, I would hope and expect nintendo also update the Wii u version to include the multiplayer and extras. I have purchased all packs and if they can do this on BOTW why not!
What a joke.......
Dont Nintendo have any new IP's? No offense, Im wondering how their fanbase dont get burnt out.
Arms will the be the first brand new IP coming to switch soon. I expect there will be a few more on the horizon too. Snipperclips is a new IP and a lot of fun.
Nintendo constantly refreshes and experiments with their IP's. Also they don't tend to release game franchises annually, and their games are usually very well made. That's why I don't get tired of their games.
they are a developer and publisher with a list of old and new; newest one will be ARMS Mario series - Unarguably the most well known of the video game series. Mario Kart series Mario Party series Mario RPG includes Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series The Legend of Zelda series Pokémon series Animal Crossing series Fire Emblem series Kirby series Yoshi series Donkey Kong series Super Smash Bros. series Chibi-Robo series Custom Robo series Earthbound (Mother) series F-Zero series Golden Sun series Kid Icarus series The Legendary Starfy series Metroid series Nintendo Wars series Advance Wars series Pikmin series Punch-Out series Rhythm Heaven series Sin and Punishment series Splatoon series Star Fox series StarTropics series Wario series WarioWare series Wave Race series Wii series Xenoblade series
