Target, a family-friendly store reliable for all your household needs, is about to turn into a chaotic wasteland thanks to a makeover celebrating Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's launch on April 28th for the Nintendo Switch. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe helps young players like her with the addition of "smart steering" to keep her on track and bump less into the walls. 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.! Instead of taking place on standard courses, new Battle maps have been purpose-built for some classic balloon-popping fun.

Alongside 48 circuits, local and online multiplayer racing and the new battle mode, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe also features five speed classes to choose from, including the super-fast thrill-ride of 200cc mode, plus a wide range of amiibo compatibility.
Inside, red Target carts are being emblazoned with Mario Kart livery, so that shoppers can pretend to be Mario, Luigi, or Princess Peach as they move up and down store aisles. According to Hideki Konno, who directed the original Mario Kart alongside Tadashi Sugiyama, the shift to a smaller-scale form of racing was "a huge challenge", despite both game's sharing the same underlying Mode 7 technology. Besides the higher resolution, you won't find any extra pizzaz. Deluxe's gorgeous visuals, variety of modes, and excellent kart racing gameplay will make it a title you continue to come back to for months. You're able to play in portable mode, use two Joy-Con controllers to play in tabletop mode or enjoy 1080p/60fps action on the TV. It seems like the game was tailor-made for Nintendo Switch.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes the best and makes it better.
Instead of the game's main course, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has included unique arenas. But that's all been true of any Mario Kart game and if you've never played one before then congratulations on getting out from under that rock, gaming has never been better!
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the flawless follow up to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
