Nintendo Releases Overview Gameplay Trailer for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Nintendo has released a new gameplay trailer for one of the company’s most anticipated games for the Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Scheduled to release in April, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe plans to re-release the fast-paced racer alongside all its DLC.

Up until now, though, we have only seen a couple of tidbits of how the game will look, but thankfully Nintendo has released a new overview gameplay trailer for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Check out the trailer down below:

 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 plans to bring 1080p visuals and 60 frames per second gameplay to the Switch. In addition, the game will also have new maps, characters, and modes. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches exclusively for the Switch on April 28.
