In an interview with Retro Gamer (via GamesRadar), three members of Super Mario Kart's development team - Hideki Konno, Tadashi Sugiyama, and Shigeru Miyamoto - revealed that Mario Kart began life as a prototype for an F-Zero mode. Deluxe includes all of the original release's DLC content, some new gameplay tweaks, and a much improved Battle mode. Splatoon gets more love with two new vehicles inspired by the inky shooter, plus another one with a wholly original design. 8 courses, 4 of them recreations of past tracks, usher in the return of the series' beloved Battle Mode. Instead of taking place on standard courses, new Battle maps have been purpose-built for some classic balloon-popping fun.

Mario Kart fans, get pumped!

However, good news this week has confirmed that both Best Buy and Toys R Us will receive new console stock for the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

1992's Super Mario Kart was originally conceived as a multiplayer prototype for SNES launch title, F-Zero. 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! We recently shared our review of the game, and it is without question the best game for Nintendo's new console since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched alongside it on March 3rd.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition will be releasing EXCLUSIVELY on the Switch on April 28.

I was pleasantly surprised with just how well online works in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Because every JoyCon counts as its own controller, so a JoyCon Grip counts as two controllers for one person, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe apparently only supports a two controllers max for wireless split-screen play in Tabletop Mode. There are 42 playable characters within the game. The Shine thief mode allows the players to hold on to the crown until the time runs out. However, the key difference between the two modes is that the only item available in Bob-omb Blast are bombs.

Overall, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an excellent package. To gather extra coins, you can throw items at opposing racers to make them drop coins or ram into them while using a Mushroom to steal a few coins.
