Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch busts sales records

Posted May 06, 2017

Among the least-believable was an apparent Nintendo and Ubisoft collaboration for a Mario x Rabbids RPG - an out-of-nowhere curveball that insider Laura Kate Dale had initially projected as a day-one release for the new console (though later sources suggested it was pushed back to September). The cast will be built from both franchise stables, with Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach joining and assortment of Rabbids...dressed as Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi. According to the assets, they were able to glean plenty of details such as Ubisoft developing this Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on the publisher's Snowdrop engine which was used on The Division and the upcoming South Park: The Fractured but Whole. Numerous console's games now focus on single player campaigns or local multiplayer; Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the first big release to stress Nintendo's online capabilities. It also has "a goofy sense of humor", two-player local co-op and sci-fi weapons. In a post on Reddit, a father of three shared how the Auto Drive feature in the game allowed his 4-year old daughter to enjoy the game despite having suffered from a stroke.

Do you think the game's appeal lies in its multiplayer aspect? The gliders don't make that much of a difference here, so choose one that works for you - the Parafoil is always a good standby. The launch titles for the Wii U weren't as groundbreaking as Breath of the Wild, but launching a console with any Legend of Zelda title blasts any numbers off the charts and up into space. It now holds a Metacritic score of 93 which makes it tied with the Game Boy Advance's Mario Kart: Super Circuit. We also got 16 additional DLC tracks for Mario Kart 8, including a stage paved right through Hyrule, accompanied by Link on a motorcycle (I'm still bummed they didn't name the bike "Epona").

Equally as impressive is that Nintendo Switch games sales are up to 5.46 million.

The Deluxe version includes all the tracks, karts and downloadable content from the original, while "there are also a few new characters to choose from". One thing we know is that the game will be visually pleasing.

This will encourage all the Third-party developers to make more games for the Nintendo Switch. Aside from the classic Balloon Battle free-for-alls, the two modes plucked from Double Dash-one where everyone's literally tossing bombs around and another that plays out like a high-stakes game of kill the man with the ball-are the most inspired inclusions.
