It's update day! Not only have we had firmware updates for the Switch and its Joy-Con controllers, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has also received a timely software refresh.

The most important update we already know about - it's the ability to capture video during gameplay - but there are some other changes to report on, too:

+ Video capture compatibility added. Hold the Capture Button to capture up to 30 seconds of the previous footage. (The system must be updated to Ver 4.0.0 or higher to use this feature.)
+ Now more difficult to float down using the glider when Smart Steering is ON.
+ Blue Shells no longer hit the second place player when the first place player hasn’t yet crossed the finish line.
+ Extended the invulnerability period after spinning out or crashing.
+ Changes made to Online Play prior to Ver.1.2.1 now apply to Wireless Play and LAN Play as well:
       - Updating to Ver 1.3.0 will prevent users from Wireless Play or LAN Play with users on Ver.1.2.1 or lower)
      - No more than one Piranha Plant will appear at a time.
      - When further back in a race, will receive better items to help catch up to other players.
