Game: Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe)
Start Date: June 15th, 2019
End Date: August 18th, 2019
It’s time to drive-in to the most recent installment of Mario Kart; Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Wii U & Nintendo Switch. In addition to various mechanics throughout other games, Mario Kart 8 brings us anti-gravity fun along with some brand new characters (some of which who have not appeared in a Mario game), some sweet new tracks, a brand new engine class, and several other interesting features. I will be playing the Switch version for this playthrough (Mario Kart 8: Deluxe), but may have an extra video in relation to the Wii U version.
Mario Kart 8 has a lot of meaning to me. At this point, it is probably my most favorite Mario Kart game, and the Mario Kart game I would recommend most to people, just because of how easily accessible the game is and because the game is still very relevant with a very active online community. This game is also what introduced me to a lot of my friends in the Puddle Plains HD community, so it’s very special to me for that reason as well. I look forward to, in the future, having pretty regular sessions of this game via the game’s “Tournament” mode, so this project could be expecting quite a bit of content…at least until the next Mario Kart game comes out, whenever that might be.
