    Hey GBATemp Users,

    do you know if its possible to get the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Content on WiiU?
    Or do we get a DLC with the Battle Arenas?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Definitely not happening. Nintendo is running away from the Wii U as fast as possible.

    And no, hackers are not going to add it somehow.

    Only way is to download the content into your Switch and place it on top of the Wii U :P

    Its possible that if when Switch games are able to be dumped and explored that some of the extra content could be added or at least used to replace content in the Wii U version of the game (say replacing the MK8 battle maps with some of the MK8 Deluxe battle maps). But I wouldn't expect to see anything like that for a very long time (if ever).

    it depends on how identical nintendo have made the game, i mean if its just the same game with dlc content added then people may be able to import it into the wii u version.

    that can be patched in with homebrew.... the file format is probably the same.

    Well, it is possible. You're going to have to reverse-engineer the Switch version yourself then hack the Wii U version and add the content in. If you want the extra content that badly you're better off bribing a Nintendo employee into leaking the game's source code. The cheapest and easiest option is to buy a Switch and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe Edition.

    I can see people making custom models, since model imports are a thing. Don't expect any of the other changes however.
