Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Footage From Japan Tour Event

If you weren’t aware, the past two days Nintendo of Japan’s YouTube page was live streaming from the hands-on Switch event in Tokyo. There were some stage shows and some personalities came to play some of the games coming to the new console.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was one of the attractions and we’ve cut the video down to the actual gameplay segments. The first part is a race, and I must admit it’s quite tense and chaotic toward the end. They should’ve went into the replay mode it was so close! The second part of the video details the new battle mode and shows off how that will work.



Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch and will hit retail on April 28, 2017. For more video, screens, and information, power slide on over to our preview.
