Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (マリオカート8デラックス Mariokāto 8 derakkusu), often abbreviated to MK8Deluxe, is a game for the Nintendo Switch. It is currently the latest game released in the series.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an expansion and a continued version of Mario Kart 8. It brings new battle courses, new characters, including King Boo, Dry Bones, Bowser Jr., and Splatoon's Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy. It also added Gold Mario, who is a costume for Metal Mario, who is unlocked by completing every cup and getting gold in 200cc (3 star status does not matter.). It also introduces new Battle Arenas along with two new items: Feather and Boo. The player can use Smart Steering (which is automatic turning) and Auto-accelerate (accelerating without need to press the A button) for easier driving.

All the DLC available in Mario Kart 8 is included within Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
