Smart Steering is an addition to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe that many would consider a good thing, especially for younger or inexperience players. It nudges you in the right direction so you don't go careening off the edge of the track with reckless abandon, but upon closer inspection is can even be used to play the game for you.

When coupled with automatic acceleration we found that we were able to achieve first place overall at 50cc on the Mushroom Cup without so much as touching the controller. Check out the video above where we explore the phenomenon in a shortened form due to the amount of footage we're allowed to show you of the game pre-launch. We'll be pushing out a special, uncut version of the video in the near future, so keep an eye out for that on our YouTube channel.
