Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Lets You Swap Characters And Karts In Online Lobby

One small gripe many fans had with the original Mario Kart 8 was the restrictive online lobby. In order to change your character or kart, players would have to exit the lobby and reconnect. This was certainly frustrating, particularly when playing with friends. However, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe seems to fix this issue. Pointed out by Andre Segers, Nintendo now allows changes in the lobby. Check out a picture below.


  1. Lots of cool new stuff. Definitely shopping around later this week to see which store gives me the better trade in deal for the Wii U version. GameStop is the closest but I feel like moving on.

    1. yes, but it also let’s you add any of your friends from miitomo and mario run. I’ve also heard that there will be an update in the future that will let you add your facebook and twitter friends as well.

  2. Does it let you import save data from the Wii U, or did I waste my time and money back in 2014?

        1. I wasn’t so I’m happy. I can just jump in and continue playing with Dry Bowser and my favorite Kart combo.
