Why is it always the German sites that get this information first? Well, at least I can read it! This time, our leak comes from a product posting on Amazon.de, where it states quite clearly that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch will be 6.75 GB.
There is a gentle reminder that you should keep a little space for the Switch’s OS, so be sure you have the necessary room before you download the game.
Pre-order for the digital version is available in Germany and Austria only, lucky them. The game itself will be released April 28th and will include the new and improved Battle Mode, and five new characters: Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy, King Boo, Dry Bones and Bowser Jr.
If Splatoon 2 will fit the Switch like a glove, than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the glass shoe that fits. I haven’t been on the Nintendo bandwagon for awhile, despite my love for all things Zelda, but with Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8, I have been called back.
I cannot wait to play something other than Snipperclips with my friends. The Switch is too unique and versatile to pass up, and a Mario Kart game is just a standard game that every Nintendo console needs to have.
Are you looking forward to Mario Kart 8? Do you think it will be better than it was on the Wii U? Let us know in the comments below!
