    So I've been watching videos of people playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on their Switches, and it's only a little over a week before launch. It is possible they got a partnership with Nintendo through the Nintendo Creators Program or something like that. I also expected an announcement of a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe demo during the Nintendo Direct on April 12th, but guess what I got? Nothing. Not even a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle.

    I just want to ask how you can get Mario Kart 8 Deluxe early legally, and also if there is any chance that a demo is coming before the full release on April 28th.

    theres always a chance of retailers selling games early. the people on youtube probably got their versions early to promote the game. and i wouldnt expect a demo for the game

    become a known reviewer by the time mario kart 9 comes out.
    OTher then that your have to pay someone to release the game early to you.

    As far as i know , unless you are a youtuber or a reviewer , you can't get the game early.
    And i don't think a demo for MK8D on the eShop could be possible , Mario Kart 7 and 8 never had an eShop demo so i wouldn't see the reason to do a demo of MK8D.

    I don't think it's launching before the game itself does though, R.I.P.
     
  7. Unless you're a YouTube Let's Player or a reviewer then chances are you won't get it until April 28.

    This LP YouTuber that I follow (he only gets about 10k views per video usually even though he has over 100k subscribers) got an early copy of it.

    your referring too the kiosk demo only found in stores like game
     
  10. Kiosk WiiUs have Mario Kart 8 demos so why didn't Nintendo release it on the eShop too? A "Testfire" type demo could have been awesome on the Switch.

    sometimes pre-orders give you the game early.
     
  12. A day or two early but a week? That's rather unlikely.

    I think I freaked out my Walmart after trying to buy the legend of Zelda amiibos early, I havent seen them there since and they put out binding of Isaac and Lego City undercover late. Anyways, just keep checking the stock trackers and they'll pop up at Walmart early usually. You might be able to buy it 2-3 early if your lucky as long as it isn't register locked.

    Kinda wish they had a multiplayer demo so we could get a glimpse of how well the online is before we decide to invest in it. Well, I guess we'll just have to buy the game first and see for ourselves while this free multiplayer lasts.

  18. They have Mario Kart 8 playable demos on Kiosk WiiU but nothing for customers eagerly waiting for it.

    just get it from the eshop the day it comes out.
    that's what i'll do.

    if i were to order it, it'd take it over 2 weeks to get to me because i am using a U.S based proxy anyway to ship all the way over to IQ for me.
    so i guess i'll just go ahead and buy it straight off the eshop , it is only about 6gigs in size so it'll download it quick for me.

    There's only one week remaining until MK8 Deluxe's launch. Can't you just wait?
