Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is one of those games you can pick up and play pretty much at any time. Whether I'm by myself trying to best a time trial or friends come over and want to play a random Switch game, I'm usually there humming the theme song (and doing air guitar for the solo).

Nintendo just announced that patch 1.2.1 has gone out for Deluxe, fixing one sole issue that "prolonged the time to return to the lobby after races near the start and end times of online tournaments."
