Great Game

Lots of fun playing with friends. It's nice to have all of the DLC from the Wii U version. A must-have for the Switch.

Awesome Game on an Awesome Console!!

I purchased this game when I got my Nintendo Switch, and it is a great game!! It has exciting new levels, and old courses from previous versions as well. The challenge of the game progresses as you play, so it isn't too hard for beginners. I would definitely recommend this game!!

Best Mario Kart To Date

Mario Kart games are almost always amazing games. While some titles in the series are still stronger in certain areas (like Double Dash still hosting a superior battle mode), there is no question that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best installment to date overall. I highly suggest the game if you never got the original version on Wii U, it is definitely worth your time and money! And even if you did buy it on Wii U, it is still a wonderful game and the much improved battle mode is enough to sway most into repurchasing the game for Switch. Of course, if you didn't enjoy the original or are not interested in battle mode, I would not suggest double dipping on the game, but you'll still be missing out!

I purchased this game for my kids! What great fun. So easy to use and setup to play two players or more. By far the best mario kart game made. fun levels and lots of replayability very fun on the bus!

Très bon jeu.

Le mode pour les enfants les empêchant de sortir de la piste le rend encore plus intéressant pour les jeunes enfants.

  • from Whitby, ON

Lots of fun for the whole family!

A good buy if you didn't purchase on the WiiU.

A great game and it looks fantastic on the Switch, but unless you're as thirsty for Splatoon themed content (And I have to admit, lacklustre content at that.) as I am, I'd pass on this if you own the WiiU version already. If you don't though, totally pick it up! Having this game on the Switch is a blast for whenever you're hanging out with a friend or if you have relatives visiting. The Steering Assist is great for kids too since they really just need to know how to hold down the Go button. TL;DR ? - Great game, but definitely not worth buying if you have the original.
