4 Reasons to Buy Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

/ May 15th, 2017 No Comments

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 released for Wii U in 2014, but Mario Kart 8 Deluxe recently released for the Nintendo Switch. So why should you buy a three-year-old game that’s being repackaged as new?

Turns out, there are several reasons why you should consider purchasing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe if you own a Nintendo Switch. Here are the four most compelling reasons.

You Can Take Mario Kart With You

This is the most obvious and maybe most compelling reason why you should buy any game on the Nintendo Switch is its portability. Although you may have played Mario Kart 8 before — and you may have even played it in different spots around your house using the Wii U’s GamePad — you can now play it anywhere you go.

Head-to-head local multiplayer is the only thing that sustains me.

I’ve taken Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to bars and played with friends, and it’s been a lot of fun. Meanwhile, nothing makes a flight go faster than working your way through the Grand Prix tournaments.

The Graphics are Better

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is gorgeous. The improvements to both video and audio quality are apparent when you play the game in full 1080p at 60fps.

Oooooh… Aaaahh….

The graphical enhancements are mostly aesthetically pleasing, but the visuals help players spot the different types of terrain and obstacles that are placed on each map. The crystal clear look is just as evident on split screens when playing multiplayer.

There are More Unlocks Available

It never takes long to unlock everything in a Mario Kart game, but the grind still feels belittling. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes with all tracks and race modes available from the start, and all but one character. Plus, there are some new maps and characters included.

Players still have to unlock new car parts, but with 12 different cups, collecting the necessary coins is far from a challenge. Being able to access all of the game’s tracks and characters is far more enjoyable than grinding out races to unlock the full game.

Battle Mode Has Been Improved Dramatically

In the Wii U version of Mario Kart 8, Battle Mode was not executed well. The tracks — the same used in racing modes — were far too large for the battle experience. However, that has changed for the better in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Dabbing to salute your own victory is optional.

There are now specific courses for Battle Mode, as well as new modes like Bom-omb Blast and Renegade Roundup. These additions add a new layer to Battle Mode and essentially revive one of the most popular game modes in the Mario Kart franchise.

Bonus Reason: Double Fisting Items

Why did Nintendo ever take this out? Did it forsake us only to realize its blunder?

The world may never know why the ability to keep two items was not featured in Mario Kart 8, but Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fixes this. Once again, you can keep an item in reserve, thus adding another layer of strategy to the game.
