The new look comes in preparation for the latest release from the popular franchise, Mario Kart 8 for Nintendo Switch. This is helped with the optional wheel accessory, allowing players to steer their karts instead of using the small joysticks on the Joy-Con controllers.
Hey, would you do us a favor? But with various play modes and controller schemes, the numerous combinations of the two can get confusing. While Nintendo's top-notch art style works well in both docked and handheld modes, the game hasn't been tweaked all that much.
It's "easily the best Mario Kart yet", says Wired, thanks to the addition of eight "brilliantly designed maps" built specifically for the revamped battle mode. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still that same gorgeous game filled with great courses, characters, and karts. "The current slate of upcoming titles is also looking strong, and we expect Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 to do well". Several Target stores in the US have already started to display "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" marketing materials where some stores even have shopping carts with side and front decals that feature the game's racing karts, Siliconera reported. More surprising, the rerelease's metascore is a whopping six points higher than the original's - a score of 94/100 with 54 reviews counted.
Two items at your disposal adds another layer of strategy and mayhem to an already unpredictable game. When you enter a Target, the motion sensors will "fire up flashing lights and play Mario's catchy theme song" and instead of regular ol' carts you'll get a "Super Target Kart" based on Mario, Luigi, or Princess Peach. Those outside of the United States may have better luck.

For the first time ever, Target stores are getting the "Super Target Kart" treatment in honor of the April 28 Nintendo Switch release of Mario Kart 8. Bowser Jr is his son, and he's a playable character in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Overall, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an excellent package. Two players can also play in split-screen via the Wireless Play mode, but there's one restriction you'll have to keep in mind.
And while the game is excellent in that it allows up to two players to share a single Switch screen while competing with up to 8 friends in Wireless Play Mode, there is a rather odd limitation on what controllers players can and can't use. It's a trade off but one that gives any player the option of being a pro player.
