The Switch’s “Sizzle Reel” constantly flashed back to a kart racer that bared a strong resemblance to Mario Kart 8. However, none of the executives would talk about it. But now that the Switch Presentation is over, we know that it’s actually Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and it’ll be available on April 28.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will include everything found in the original Mario Kart 8, as well as all the racers and courses from both downloadable expansions. However, it’ll also feature even more new courses and characters (Inklings from Splatoon and King Boo for sure), along with a more traditional Battle Mode.
A full trailer for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is embedded above.
