Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Switch Looks Fantastic!
Back in January, at the Nintendo Switch Presentation, it was officially announced that an updated version of the Wii U’s Mario Kart 8 was coming to the Nintendo Switch. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is slated for release on April 28th. Today, some new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch gameplay videos have surfaced.
It appears that a preview embargo was lifted and various gameplay videos have been dropping on YouTube. Based on the gameplay shown, the game appears to run quite well. Not only does it run well in docked mode but also in portable mode. Load times also seem significantly better compared to Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U.
