    Nintendo of Japan has put out a six minute trailer that shows off all the new additions that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be getting on the Nintendo Switch. All the tracks and characters from the Wii U version and its DLC will be included, as well as new additions such as Dry Bones, King Boo, Bowser JR, and Splatoon's squid characters. There will also be a beginner mode, titled Smart Steering, which prevents players from falling off the race tracks. Battles return, with brand new courses. There's also other battle games, announced first during the Switch launch reveal event, shown off in the video, such as the Piranha Plant mode, where one team has the piranha plant power-up, and must try to capture all the players who don't. Coin Battle is included as well, where you must try to collect the most amount of coins on the track before time runs out. Lastly, there's a Shine mode, which has players race across new battle stages to get all the shines hidden in the course. Lastly, one more new character will be added...in...the form of Gold Mario... Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches worldwide on April 28 for the Nintendo Switch.

    UPDATE: Ninendo of America has posted the same trailer, albeit a slight bit shorter, in English now.

    Looks great and I'm looking forward to it, but this better not be the only MK that Switch gets.

    this will probably be the first online multiplayer game that i will buy for my switch.

    i wish it was out sooner because i have no games atm.
    i will buy some eshop game for the time being.

    Zelda was sold out in the shops (when i was in germany..) but i could order it from amazon now.

    but i want to try out the WiiU version first.

    so yeah, it looks like Nintendo is making me buy the same game twice xD.

    i should try selling my Wii U Games at least.

    i just love the idea of playing MK8 in my bed with the sharp sweet looking screen of the Switch c:

    I'm curious about Download Play. Does it even exist on the Switch?

    No system has ever got a port from another system during the launch window.

    At least I ain't paying much when double dipping, £30 with my amazon discounts. :)

    My Wii U disc stopped working. It's a fun multiplayer game with the family.

    Seems good enough to buy. Glad they actually put some effort into it instead of just cramming in amiibo support, including the DLCs and selling it to us for full price.

    I'm so hyped to play MK8D. Loved playing it at the Switch Premieres and next month it'll be out. :)

    Gold Mario has been on Mario Kart 8 since the beginning. Why are people so surprised now?

    Played it at the Premieres with other people around and it was so much fun! There was a guy that was even faster and more strategic than I was. :P

    Even getting bumped out by the Super Horn didn't do much 'cause they kept hitting me with red shells so they caught up to me eventually.

    That doesn't mean anything. Nintendo is changing and this is a repackaged version of the WiiU version with new content.
