Nintendo Talks Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

One title that many are looking forward to is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe especially those who didn’t play the original Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. Japanese gaming publication Famitsu recently interviewed Nintendo’s Kosuke Yabuki who worked on both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Arms simultaneously. Here’s a few golden nuggets from the interview:

  • Kosuke Yabuki worked on both Arms and Mario Kart 8 DX simultaneously.
  • Yabuki was very excited to make this version for Switch
  • Wanted to deliver a Mario Kart game immediately and not start from scratch.
  • Nintendo EPD used the extra power for 1080p/60fps on tv mode.
  • Yabuki says the extra ram allowed his team to experiment with holding multiple items at once. (all 12 characters can hold 2 items at a time)
  • Consulted with Nogami for the Splatoon stage and characters
  • Lot of strategy can be used in battle mode
  • Gyro controls improved
  • Doesn’t completely shutdown the idea of future DLC, but he says the game already has so much content.

    Mario Kart Wii also had 12 player and all can hold two items at once too, so… I don’t know what the deal is this since the Wii only having a few megabytes of RAM manages to have two items at once for all 12 players, but not on Mario Kart 8 with the Wii U having 2GB of RAM? Am I missing something?

    1. Yes this game is more graphically demanding then the Wii version. Big part to miss actually lol They probly couldn’t include it on wiiu because it was already maxed out in power and since switch is a little more powerful they were able to include it.

    I’d consider MK8D on 2 conditions: 1. Free updates that adds more tracks later on, ala Splatoon. For 60 bucks, that isn’t too much to fucking ask for, is it!? 2. … 2. … Shit! I forgot what condition 2 was gonna be!
