Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has a wealth of tracks to race on, but what is everyone’s favourite? Well, Nintendo UK recently ran a poll asking this very question and the answer was the tricky but ingenious Rainbow Road. Nintendo UK caught up with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe producer Kosuke Yabuki to quiz him about the design of the popular course and what he is most proud of about it. You can read his response below!
“My favourite part is how the two routes form an intertwined spiral, before heading into the final corner. The design allows for lots of different tactical gameplay depending on your items and the situation around you, such as changing your route, or taking a shortcut between the two paths of the spiral.
However, this is also the part where drivers from all over the world are most likely to fall off the track… If you keep falling off no matter what you do, then in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe you can try turning on Smart Steering. This option now gives anyone the opportunity to have fun driving around.”
