Target's Mario Kart Makeover Is Facing Backlash for the Weirdest Reason

Mario Kart 8 was one of the best games on the Nintendo Wii U and now it's released for the Nintendo Switch as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Unlocking auto customization options are still hidden away until you've grabbed an appropriate amount of coins but you won't be at too much of a disadvantage as the regular kart will do the job. The new Coin Runners mode, for example, has competitors racing around the open course to collect the most coins. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe you can play as an Inkling boy or an Inkling girl.

For both the Wii and Wii U, Nintendo released first week sales for its new consoles, with the Wii selling an impressive 600,000 in the United States and the Wii U a comparatively disappointing 400,000 after eight days. While the game has gotten a couple of updates here and there, for the most part it is still largely the same with nothing major being introduced, save for now. Similar to Gamecube's excellent Mario Kart: Double Dash, you'll be able to hold onto 2 items at a time in this iteration of Kart. 8 courses, 4 of them recreations of past tracks, usher in the return of the series' beloved Battle Mode. Jonathan noted that Mario Kart 8 doesn't reinvent any wheel, but it, like almost every Mario Kart that came before it, was a wonderful multiplayer kart racer that would be enjoyed by fans for years to come.

So has the popular racing series stood the test of time?

Inside, red Target carts are being emblazoned with Mario Kart livery, so that shoppers can pretend to be Mario, Luigi, or Princess Peach as they move up and down store aisles. Smart Steering as well as auto acceleration changes this.

Nintendo added a unusual limitation to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when playing it in the two-player Wireless Play mode. You can find crafts and art projects for geeky families at her blog The St Button.

That's because for some odd reason the Switch refuses to let players play unless they're using a single Joy-con, or several Pro Controllers.

So either Zelda's attach rate isn't as incredible as anecdotal evidence might suggest (we know no one who doesn't own the game, and we're sure you don't either) or something isn't quite right with the figures.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes the best and makes it better. The Mario Kart gods have brought back the Boo item which allows you to steal items and the feather which allows you to jump higher. Share your comments below!
