Mario Kart TV App

While not necessarily a feature used by many, Mario Kart 8's TV mode, allowing you to upload highlights directly to YouTube, is one of the games most modern features. That said, some users were encountering consistent errors with the feature, halting their attempts at racing stardom on the web.

Nintendo promised an update to resolve the problem, but rather than issue a software-only fix has opted to fix the problem with a system update. Version 5.3.1 (add a U or E for your region) is now available, and the changelog confirms that not only is the Mario Kart TV issue resolved, but our systems are also that little bit more stable.

Mario Kart 8 highlight reel upload fix:

  • Resolved an issue that resulted in some users receiving error code 104-1852 while uploading a Mario Kart 8 highlight reel to YouTube

Improvements to system stability and usability:

  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

We love some stability and 'minor enhancements', though we suspect Mario Kart TV fans will be happiest with this update.

If you use Mario Kart TV and had experienced the previous error code let us know whether this successfully solves the problem.
