Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, for those unfamiliar, is basically Mario Kart 8, except that it has been designed for the Nintendo Switch. It will come with all the DLCs from the previous Mario Kart 8, which means that in terms of characters, karts, and other customization options, there are plenty to choose from.


However if you’re someone who enjoys using their Mii character to play in the game, you might be interested to learn that the latest update to the game will introduce a new Pikmin suit for your Mii avatar. The latest update will bump Mario Kart 8 Deluxe up to version 1.2 and will bring about the new costume, although unfortunately it seems that you will require a Pikmin-themed amiibo to unlock it.

In addition to the new costume, the update will also bring about some slight changes to the game. One of those changes include, ”Race rules and course name are now displayed on loading screens for online and wireless play, as well as Mario Kart TV.” It will also see players who are behind in online matches standing a higher chance of receiving items that will allow them to catch up.

Another bug that has been fixed is the communication error that will no longer occur frequently during spectating of online games, so if you haven’t updated your Mario Kart 8 Deluxe yet, you should probably go ahead and do so.
