Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Nintendo dropped another update for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe last night. It's a good'un!

The major new feature coincides with yesterday's Nintendo Switch 4.0 firmware update that enables 30-second video capture for select games. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is one such title, and I like to think easy, built-in capture like this will help get more moments of gut-wrenching misery out there.

Or this. This is good too.

Update version 1.3.0:

Video capture compatibility added. Hold the Capture Button to capture up to 30 seconds of the previous footage.

  • The system must be updated to Ver 4.0.0 or higher to use this feature.

Now more difficult to float down using the glider when Smart Steering is ON.

Blue Shells no longer hit the second place player when the first place player hasn’t yet crossed the finish line.

Extended the invulnerability period after spinning out or crashing.

Changes made to Online Play prior to Ver.1.2.1 now apply to Wireless Play and LAN Play as well:

  • When further back in a race, will receive better items to help catch up to other players.
  • No more than one Piranha Plant will appear at a time.
  • Updating to Ver 1.3.0 will prevent users from Wireless Play or LAN Play with users on Ver.1.2.1 or lower.

Real happy about that Piranha Plant tweak. Real happy.
