Random surprises like this are why I love Nintendo
Mario Kart 9's looking a little strange..
My Mario Kart 8 won't update with new content. Something must be wrong.
Nintendo's really committed to support every Mario kart on switch except for 8 deluxe... THE GOOD ONE
@tee-cup : Mario Kart 9: B.Y.O Damn Kart!
That looks so cool!
Why not add Yoshi himself instead of a car shaped like him?
Remember when this game was on home consoles?
I just checked this out and it's pretty great! I like the Fossil Fields the most. I kinda want Mario Kart 9 more but this tides me over for now
Now let's hope this means more karts are one the way!
Omg, now not just the phone game but even THIS Mario Kart gets more new content than 8 Deluxe.
Up next: New courses and characters for the Mario Kart arcade game!
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for people who own this game but does Nintendo hate Mario Kart 8? 😜
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has all the DLC included already?
Ah good reason to built this up again, especially since it is raining this weekend
(but i need some mariokart 8 dlc as well... come one nintendo.. on package with the best of the mariokart tour tracks.. how hard can it be)
I'd love some more SNES tracks. I've just delved into the mobile game, and I must admit it made me smile to see some of the SNES tracks with their original music in there.
I'll have to get this back out this weekend. I've not played a lot of it admittedly, but the kids absolutely love it. Although our house is big, it's a funny shape, so it takes up most of downstairs to try and make a decent course.
If this was a Yoshi set I might've given it a go. Might have.
But overall this just doesn't seem that fun to me personally unless you have cats which I don't. I'll take a good Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update though please!
Mario Kart 8 have already had many DLC and updates. It's a 7 years old game, 4 years if we only count the switch version. It's time for a new Mario kart before the next generation.
I'm loving the sarcastic comments 😆
But genuine question: do people enjoy this Home Circuit game? Just seems more trouble to set up (and even play) than its worth.
It's not a huge hassle to set up, it's more the inconvenience it causes to others while it is!
But seriously, they've done a cracking job implementing the traditional MK elements into it, I'm hardly going to sit and hammer through it in single-player, but the kids and I will set it up for an hour or two over the weekend and have a blast.
Plus, the novelty of racing around my own pad hasn't quite worn off yet!
I only bought a Kart last week as it was on sale. Yet to actually play with it. I might now.
As for those whinging about no MK8 Deluxe update. It's fully updated. That's the "deluxe" part. That's good news too. It means Nintendo are focusing on MK9 and any new content will go there.
My British house doesn't have the square footage for this 😭
Let's hope this signals more karts and updates in the future. This game has potential with more cardboard AR object to buy (think Peaches Castle you drive through) and characters/tracks.
@WoomyNNYes Nintendo never bettered the SNES original. 2-player battle mode on that is one of the greatest multiplayer experiences of all time.
I always find local races on the newer ones always play out the same: one player is amazing and finishes in 1st every game. The other 2 tussle mid-grid and the one person who isn't that great finishes somewhere near the bottom ie no fun for anyone.
The Blue Shell finsihed it for me. Doesn't matter how good you are against the CPU it always manages to BS you at the wrong time.
"Nintendo never bettered the SNES original. 2-player battle mode on that is one of the greatest multiplayer experiences of all time"
What's wrong with the Switch battle mode? I find them fun to play online.
Oh the AI in single-player is utter *****. I've given up trying to get gold on everything, because I'm so sick of wining the first two races, then the AI always ending up with whatever weapon it needs exactly when it needs it.
And agreed on MK battle mode - it's just perfect. One thing that's always aggrieved me about MK is that on the original, it was still possible to miss with a red shell. The way they swing around to home in means they're not necessarily an instant hit unless you're patient. The sequels pretty much ditched that.
Must boot this up again.
I hope this leads to more, it's really weird they still have not released more physical racers. Considering the game can be played with 4 people they should at least add Peach and Yoshi.
You rat [email protected] Nintendo LOL would you please stop treating MK8D as the red headed step child!? The phone game and this thing get so much attention yet the golden goose laying the golden eggs (MK8D still sells like crazy!) would like some of it too other than just sales numbers bragging rights.
@SpringDivorce As far as getting gold in all 150cc cups goes, yes the AI can be brutal/unfair, but it's not always brutal. For Mario Kart 7 & 8, there were always about 3 cups where you have to race the cup about 5-10+ times before you get winnable AI in all four races. So, you're basically waiting for the break in the unfair difficulty cycle. My memory is fuzzy, I think 200cc was the same way. But yeah, it is a pain in the butt replaying those same 4 tracks. If you've had worse luck with the AI, I sympathize.😉
That's really funny how you'd think that they will focus on MK9 when they JUST released a random update for MK Live. They also have the mobile version to milk. The only reason why they'd even update MK Live out of nowhere is to get outlets talking about the game. MK8D doesn't need that exposure.
For the right price, I will one day pick this up. I'm all in favor of more AR gaming experiences and this is such a brilliant entry to the genre, legit probably the best yet.
@Deepdoop cause 8 already got a lot ever since it was released on Wii U
@Randominternetperson Clearly I'm referring to mainline MK games, and the lack of new content THERE suggests they are saving it for a new game. What they do with other games is irrelevant in that context.
Definitely for the more money than sense crowd.
