MARIO KART 8 DELUXE
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (released 28 April) is an enhanced version of the exceptional Wii U racer that we all know and love, complete with new characters and the return of fan-favourite modes. Why is it so interesting? Another time-tested Nintendo mainstay, an intense round of Mario Kart is guaranteed to deliver the elation of victory to one racer, leaving their competitors with a burning will to win after bitter defeat.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe wraps up all the existing DLC characters and tracks into one enhanced package, and invites additional characters like the Splatoon Inkling squid-kids, King Boo, and Dry Bones. But best of all might be the revamped Battle Mode, which includes more courses and brings back those classic Balloon Battles (with support for up to eight players via local wireless multiplayer).
