Retailers! Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition Will Not Be Releasing On Xbox One!

Look I’m not one to bash someone when they make a mistake, but when it happens for the second time? Cmon’ guys.

UK retailer ASDA has yet again, marketed Nintendo Switch material for the Xbox One. Previously gamers saw Switch pre-orders marketed on the Xbox One, now we see that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition is ‘allegedly’ a pre-order title for Xbox One. I mean really? Is this just an employee giving people false hope or someone who doesn’t understand how video game releases work. Either way, if Market Kart 8 Deluxe Edition were to make an appearance on Xbox One, it would probably smash charts for quite a while.

 Nintendo Switch fans can enjoy the definitive version of Mario Kart 8 anywhere, anytime, even with up to eight friends in local wireless multiplayer. All your favourite tracks and characters return from the Wii U version, plus all DLC tracks and characters, and new characters join the roster, too: Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl from Splatoon, King Boo, Dry Bones, and Bowser Jr.! Plus, battle mode has been revamped and includes Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast, with all-new courses such as Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, and returning ones like (GCN) Luigi’s Mansion and (SNES) Battle Course 1 from Super Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.

Players can now carry two items at a time, including new items returning from previous Mario Kart games such as Boo, the item-stealing ghost, and the Feather, which gives you a high jump in battle mode. Players can even choose to use a new Smart Steering feature which makes driving and staying on the track easy for novice players and kids, even at 200cc. Play in TV mode in up to 1080p. 

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition will be releasing EXCLUSIVELY on the Switch on April 28.
