Famitsu submitted its Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review and to the surprise of no one, it’s still a good game. Even when it was on the Wii U people loved it, thanks to the imaginative tracks and fun game modes. The fact that it will be remastered and come with all of the DLC is a great Nintendo Switch deal.

According to Famitsu via Nintendo Everything, the game got three 9 out of 10’s and one 8 out of 10. These are pretty solid scores, though it’s easy to see why it won’t be getting a perfect 10 anytime soon. Still, Switch fans that want better multiplayer titles can do far worse than this remastered release of Mario Kart 8.

Deluxe = Less Than Perfect

There’s no denying that the game is fun, hence the near perfect scores in the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review from Famitsu. However, it’s still a re-release of a previous game with no new content, so it shouldn’t get a better score. Some would argue that the re-release of Mario Kart 8 could lead to more re-releases, which isn’t always good.

Not all Nintendo fans are against re-releases, since there are a number of great games on the Wii U. Bayonetta 2 is considered an action masterpiece and no one would be against a Switch port of the game. Other titles like Wind Waker HD, Super Mario 3D World and more have also been requested by Nintendo Switch fans.

A Race To The Switch

Don’t expect much of a reaction to the less than perfect scores from the Mario kart 8 Deluxe review. It’s a re-release, so any perfect scores it may have deserved might have gone to the original Wii U version. Switch fans that haven’t played the game yet should definitely pick up this re-release, as it provides great multiplayer for online and offline play.

As stated before the Deluxe edition of the game will have all of the DLC, including new tracks and Link from Zelda as a playable character. The game already had a wealth of content before the DLC, so this just makes the title even bigger than before. It will definitely keep players busy until more interesting titles come to the new system, like Splatoon 2 or Arms.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes to the Nintendo Switch next week on April 28. The Wii U version of the game is available now, along with all of the downloadable content.
