Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Has Been Updated To Version 1.4.0

Nintendo has given Mario Kart 8 Deluxe players an early Christmas present. A brand new update has been released for the game, putting it at version 1.4.0. A couple of months have passed since the game was last updated. This update focuses on language support, adding Traditional Chinese , Simplified Chinese and Korean. We’ve included the entire patch notes down below, so feel free to check them out.

  • Language support for Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean has now been implemented.
    • You can change languages in Settings on your console.
  • An issue has been resolved that prevented background music from playing after you reach the finish line.
  • When you download update data (Ver.1.4.0), you will no longer be able to engage in local play or LAN play with those still using Version 1.2.1 or earlier.



  1. More word on this MK8 Port that I don’t understand why even exists. Once again, till the next official Mario Kart game with NEW Nitro and Retro Tracks for the Switch is announcement, I will not be getting one myself. The tradition has been 1 new game per system, of which I’m sure has been Hideki Konno’s goal, ports of which do not apply.

    1. Same could be said for a solo Switch Zelda title… if Nintendo were smart, they could return in Switch year 3 and announce new titles either for later that year or in year 4 of a new Zelda title that is developed exclusively for the Switch and perhaps a Mario Kart title… I think that the tradition could be broken with MK though, only because there is so many tracks and characters and there is such a vast discrepency between the Wii and Wii U user base that there are, in their minds, 100 million people who didn’t play MK 8 on Wii U

  2. Any Switch Mario Kart game is likely to be late in the Switch’s life-cycle I’m afraid. Although I do hold out a small hope for A Smash Bros. Switch being created sooner than that. If they end up porting Smash U though, you can put that to bed.

  3. An okay update. I was about say that they got rid of the LAN play which would’ve pissed some people off until I read that it won’t work for others in primitive firmware. XD
