How to drift like a pro in 'Mario Kart 8 Deluxe'

According to the report, the game will have eight playable characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Yoshi, as well as four Rabbids dressed up as those Nintendo characters. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is being built on the Snowdrop engine, the same engine used to create The Division. Outside of new characters and a battle mode, the game also came bundled with a Smart Steering feature, which automatically helps players navigate turns.

The reports are in: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is now selling faster than any other Mario Kart game in the franchise's 25-year history, clocking in with a whopping 459,000 copies sold on launch day in the United States by itself. We won't get our hopes up for an online multiplayer mode, but there will be local co-op. Nintendo has announced that 459,000 copies were sold (physical and digital) on its first day on sale, an attach rate of 45%.

If you plan on tearing up the track in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, you've got to have the right kart and racer to back you up. Nintendo has attempted to atone for the original release's mistakes with a decked-out combat suite that borrows arenas and game-types from all around the series. Many of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's players are unlikely to have those same expectations. Finally, the source suggests that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will release later this year, most likely in August or September, so there is a good likelihood it won't be too much longer before we start getting official details.

The most peculiar though was what was referred to by LetsPlayVideoGames.com as Mario RPG: Invasion Of The Rabbids.


Equally as impressive is that Nintendo Switch games sales are up to 5.46 million. Have you picked up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe yet?

This will encourage all the Third-party developers to make more games for the Nintendo Switch. It now holds a Metacritic score of 93 which makes it tied with the Game Boy Advance's Mario Kart: Super Circuit.

We've had some fun with the Rabbids games in the past.
