Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Gets Labo Support

Back in April, Nintendo released the innovative Nintendo Labo kits. These kits allowed users to create a range of different cardboard toys for use with the software, as well as create their own inventions. One of the creations in the Variety Kit were the motorcycle handlebars.

Today, Nintendo released a brand new update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which allows you to get more immersed in the crazy karting action. You can now use the Motorcycle ToyCon to race your way through the tracks of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! Once updated, just enable JoyCon support for each player using the ToyCon, and you’re all set.

Additionally, Nintendo also said that they will bring even more Labo compatibility to other titles in the near future, so don’t recycle those kits just yet!

If you still haven’t tried out either Nintendo Labo or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, you can check out our Labo review here, and our Mario Kart review here!

Come 2017, Mario is back with the same set of wheels for the Nintendo Switch, this time with some shiny new enhancements. Will Mario Kart 8 Deluxe take home the gold, or will it end up being a burnout? Find out in our review, after the break!
