Some of us officially have a new favourite track in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Ever since the Booster Course Pass kicked off with Wave 1, one track in particular - Ninja Hideaway, the last course in the Lucky Cat cup - has captured many people's attention with its branching paths, verticality, and amazing music. And to think they were hiding this from us in Mario Kart Tour!
But it turns out, like a ninja hiding in the shadows, there's a nasty surprise awaiting drivers. YouTube channel Gaming Reinvented has discovered a softlock in the course - and no, it's not a disappearing technique.
About a third of the way into the track, there's a ramp that you can drive off, and facing that is a sign. If you land on top of this at the wrong angle or too far to the left, your character will be unable to move or turn. You can't get out of this, either, which means you'll just have to quit or wait for the race to be over if that happens!
This is pretty easy to do at high speeds, or in 200cc mode in particular, so - and this isn't something we say lightly or often regarding Mario Kart - drive safely!
We'll see if Nintendo patch this out at some point before Wave 2 hits, but for now, we'll just make sure we avoid landing on that sign.
Have you noticed any other softlocks or glitches since Wave 1 launched? Or have you encountered this issue? Let us know.
Never noticed it, must have been going too slow.
I would've been p***** if this happened during a MK tournament my sister and I were having on the new tracks.
There is also an annoying corner just after this on the rooftops that lead towards the finish no matter how well you are driving if you hit it at the wrong angle you will crash can be annoying especially if you are going for a fast time on time trial it kinda breaks the course which is a real shame
This is somewhat unrelated to the discussion, but am I the only one that doesn’t really care for this track? Everybody acts like it’s a top 10 track, and I just don’t see it. There’s nearly 90-degree turns, which is a big no-no, and while the alternate routes are cool, they are all really janky to access. It works a lot better in Tour, where the turns are designed for that engine, but I much prefer the other two Tour tracks that were remastered.
@JakedaArbok have to admit reading peoples comments and love for this track I was expecting it to be amazing (never played tour) but I’m a little disappointed love the graphics and music but it definitely could be better
@Gs69 i don´t think it´s annoying. Annoying for me is Mario Kart 8 have 80% easy tracks. I love difficult tracks. I love Sega and Sonic Allstar Racing very difficult corners. I love games i need to get better and better, because the tracks are difficult. F-zero is this kind of game: difficult tracks and
you need to have the ability to overcome. Crash team Racing has some of the most difficult tracks ever in this kind of game and it´s perfect!
But it´s only my opinion.
I didn't want to buy these 48 tracks, but my wife did. I bought it and this Ninja track is great because it's a little harder than the others! Still, I think Mario Kart 8 doesn't have any hard tracks. For me, all are absolutely easy.
Please Nintendo: HARDER TRACKS, PLEASE!
@Rykdrew I don’t mean it’s annoying in a difficult kinda way I mean in the whole game original tracks and new ones there is not a single track where you are hindered by the track or surroundings on this particular track I have found the one mentioned in the article and the one I have mentioned above they are game breakers if you really like to test yourself on this game it just doesn’t happen on any of the tracks apart from this track
As much as I love the new dlc there are several collision issues that need to be addressed.
I like it simply becuz its new. Am over racing old tired tracks.
@Rykdrew All tracks are hard if you play online against experts! 200cc changed it up too.
@Alaninho it´s true!
But harder tracks in Crash Team Racing be harder in online against good players too. Super intense.
I love Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I play more than Crash Team Racing. But when i feel bored (because the track simplicity) i play Crash Team Racing, because is more "intense".
But Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still the best "Mario Kart" racing all time to me.
