I haven’t played all the Mario Kart games, but I would like to assume that Mario Kart 8 ranks up there with some of the best. It’s a game that I played both on the Wii U and the Switch. The fact that I was willing to pay full price for it twice demonstrates how great of a game it is. What has allowed it to stand out from prior Mario Kart games is downloadable DLC. We weren’t always stuck with the original product. Down the road, we were given more characters, tracks, and cups. Well, Nintendo has continued that trend with update 1.6 for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The update is free and available now and it adds the Master Cycle Zero, Breath of the Wild Champion’s Tunic, new tires, and the paraglider. I haven’t played Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for a while, but it might just be the right time to head on back to the game!
